Sport's Vision Statement
At Our Lady and St Rose we pride ourselves on providing a high- quality Physical Education curriculum that enables all our children irrelevant of their background to perform at the highest levels possible. Physical Education plays a vital role in developing the child holistically...
Physical Education curriculum development within the Early Years Foundation Stage focuses on improving:
• Special awareness
Physical Education within the primary years focuses on the National Curriculum key aims:
• To develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• To be physically active for sustained periods of time
• To engage in competitive sports and activities
• To lead healthy, active lives
We believe that the key principles of the National Curriculum will only be sustained if we strengthen our partnership with parents carers and other schools within our academy. We strive to do this through, assemblies, competitions and after-school clubs.
We aim to provide opportunities for our children to become confident and physically literate in a way which supports their well being. In addition to this, we aim to provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities in order to build resilience and embed values such as teamwork, fairness and respect.
At OLSR we are committed to building an ethos of collaborative and competitive learners through providing opportunities for them to participate in a range of physical activities from the Foundation Stage right through to Key Stage Two. All of our children participate in intra-school sports competitions set up within our quad and MAC schools. We use a portion of the funding to employ a Cluster Sports Coordinator who works collaboratively across eight local schools (she is a qualified Physical Education teacher with 20 years teaching experience and a school Leadership background.) By working as part of this cluster we are able to use our Sports Premium most effectively to:
1. Improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision within the curriculum (with a focus on up-skilling our own Teachers and Teaching Assistants for the future)
2. Increase participation in PE, Sport and Physical Activity so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of
3. Provide an extensive range of activities available for extra-curricular and competitive opportunities
A detailed plan for use of our Sports premium funding against the 5 Key Indicators is detailed below.
