Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Government has made a commitment to invest over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.
They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school. Schools and academies determine how best to spend their allocation.
Outwood Primary Academy Park Hill has engaged in a range of sporting competitions during 2018/19. Notable achievements included:
- 97 children took part in sporting competitions.
- Lunchtime provision was reviewed and additional equipment purchased to ensure that a range of opportunities was available for children. Play Leader training has ensured that this equipment has been well utilised.
- The playground was sectioned into zones with spaces for fitness, mindfulness, dance and sport facilitated by the Lunch Time Play Leader and Learning Managers.
- A variety of sports/physical activity clubs ran throughout the year. Many of these were subsidised in order to ensure access for all. These included, yoga, netball, football, dance and multi skills.
- Additional PE resources were purchased to ensure that the PE scheme of work can be fully implemented.
- Internal Staff CPD was provided to ensure the resources purchased were effectively used and teaching standards were sustainable. Alongside this, external coaches provided CPD within team teach PE sessions across the Key Stages.
- Children gained the Junior Sport Leadership Award and Year 5 children gained the Play Maker Award.
- The Sport Leader completed PE Leadership CPD in the form of L5 and L6 qualification.
