PE and School Sport
OLD HALL JUNIOR SCHOOL
PE VISION STATEMENT
At Old Hall Junior School, we believe that all children should have access to a high-quality Physical Education curriculum and this should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum. We hope that through the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer, the children will develop a love and passion for sport and continue this into their later lives. Our school recognises the benefits high quality PE provision and school sport can give to all pupils.
Our PE curriculum aims to be inclusive for all and provide all pupils with knowledge of fundamentals as well as skills and techniques to enable them to be the best that they can be. Children will develop their thinking, creative, emotional and social skills as well as their physical skills. All pupils will be provided with the knowledge, skills and motivation to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and benefit them in future years. We aim to provide the children with at least two hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week. To add to this, we make break times and lunchtimes as active as possible too.
Our pupils will experience a wide range of competitive, creative and challenge-type activities both as individuals and as part of a group or team. We aim for as many children as possible to represent the school on sporting occasions and participate in inter-school and intra-school events. We hope that in doing so, the children will develop greater confidence, team work and learn to win or lose with grace as well as showing sportsmanship throughout. Children will also be able to develop their outdoor education skills during three residential visits.
Children as Leaders
It is also important that our children develop lifelong leadership skills and therefore we offer the opportunity for all children to lead activities throughout their time at Old Hall. We feel that these opportunities give children the feeling of responsibility, to show respect for rules and others as well as developing organisation, communication and teamwork skills. In school, we have Bronze Young Ambassadors, Mini Leaders, Change 4 Life leaders and Travel Safe ambassadors.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the 5 key indicators:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
We are proud of PE and school sport at Old Hall and we hope that this continues to grow in the future and prepare our children for life after Old Hall.
