The Year Ahead – our curriculum aims
At Otterbourne, our values of Trust, Respect and Determination continue to be upheld in all the various sporting opportunities that our children experience. Regardless of where these opportunities arise be it in a house competition, playing a match against another school, a weekly PE lesson, a County Final or participating in the Hampshire Games we are proud to encourage and see these values on show.
As a school we believe that physical activity is essential to the development of the whole child. Sport and physical activity promotes character building, co-operation/team skills and increases confidence and self-esteem which in turn has a positive influence in the classroom. Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced physical education curriculum, which is progressive, inclusive, stimulating and challenging for children of all ages and abilities.
Other spending options, allowing for further funding, include: transport for sports events and travel to swimming, extra-kits for sporting events, Astroturf for KS2 play areas, markings for Church playground.
House Events: Our Y6 House Captains (supported by the Sport Co-ordinator) will run regular house events within all year groups. There will be at least 2 house events per half term and these will take place within the school day – either at lunchtime or during a timetabled P.E. slot.
Competitions: Our School Games Organisers have produced a draft timetable for the next academic year. This covers a wide variety of sports. We will aim to attend as near to 100% of these competitions as is possible.
Impact Statement: Being able to offer all of our children the chance to represent the school in a sporting capacity is of paramount importance to us. We have retained our Platinum Award as a result of completing a self-analysis for the previous year.
The impact of bringing a qualified coach into school has enabled teachers to positively approach the teaching of a differentiated, skills-based approach to sports which is guaranteed to help develop children of all abilities in the future.
