PE at Rowlatts Hill Primary
Our Vision for PE and Sport
At Rowlatts Hill Primary School, we believe that PE and Sport is an essential part of a child’s educational and social development. Therefore, we aim to provide a balanced program offering a variety of opportunities to develop a broad range of life skills including collaboration, confidence and competition. Through PE and Sport we also aim to encourage children to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
At Rowlatts Hill Primary School, our pupils have access to two hours of PE every week through which we develop the six areas of activity according to the National Curriculum – Gymnastics, Games, Dance, Athletics, Swimming and Outdoor Adventure Activities.
Pupils are taught a range of sports including football, basketball, gymnastics, netball, tag rugby, kwik cricket, badminton, tennis, swimming and athletics. All pupils are encouraged to compete in the correct manner through intra and inter school sport.
PE and Sports Partnerships
We here at Rowlatts aim to provide the pupils with a range of different experiences. Therefore, we frequently have outside agencies coming into school to work with the pupils. Such outside agencies work in conjunction with the class teachers to deliver, plan and coach pupils and staff alike. Some of these agencies include Leicester Tigers, Leicester City, Leicester Riders, Leicester City Ladies, Leicester Foxes, Change for Life and DMU Moving Together.

After School Sports Clubs
Through the use of the Sports Funding, we are proud to offer a number of after school sports clubs led by qualified coaches. These enable the pupils to further enhance their sporting skills, confidence and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Timetable for Autumn Term 1
Timetable for Autumn Term 2
In addition to the After School Clubs above, Mr. Ashcroft will be leading the competitive clubs.
The Housings System and Sports Day
To promote collaboration and team work amongst the children, we have introduced competitive sport into the Housing System present at Rowlatts. The children are split up into four houses– Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Each half term the children have a competition in the sport or skill that they have been focusing on within their PE lessons competing within their year group. Points are awarded to all houses dependent on where they finish and are then added to the school totals for the final event – Sports Day.

In order to motivate and encourage pupils whether this be related to sport or other ambitions, we often have special visitors whom work closely and talk to the pupils. Some of these to date have included Emile Heskey, Joanne Jackson
Inter School Sport
As previously mentioned, the pupils at Rowlatts Hill Primary School are encouraged to compete in the correct manner. This has involved a number of competitive fixtures and tournaments in a range of sports.

However, Rowlatts Hill fell asleep and back came Catherine Juniors with two great goals to make it 2-2 at half time. In the second half, both teams were trying really hard to score.

Having gone behind for the first time in the game Rowlatts Hill rallied and managed to score a late equaliser, levelling the scores at 3-3.

Unfortunately, Rowlatts paid the price for missing a handful of opportunities in the first half. In the second it was more of the same. Then the breakthrough came through leading goal scorer Mason.
