At Rowlatts Hill Primary Academy, we believe Physical Education and Sport is an essential part of a pupil’s educational and social development. Therefore, we aim to provide a balanced program offering a variety of opportunities to develop a broad assortment of life skills including collaboration, confidence and competition. Through Physical Education and Sport, we also aim to encourage pupils to leady healthy, active lifestyles.
Our pupils have access to two hours of Physical Education per week – through which we develop the six areas of activity agreeing to the National Curriculum – Gymnastics, Games, Dance, Athletics, Swimming and Outdoor Adventure Activities. Progression is evident within and through the year groups across the school.
Pupils are taught a range of sports including: football, basketball, gymnastics, netball, tag rugby, kwik cricket, badminton, tennis, swimming and athletics. Sports covered within school are actively discussed with the pupils who are at the forefront of any decisions. All pupils at Rowlatts Hill are encouraged to attend Sports Clubs. Additionally, pupils are also encouraged to represent the school through inter or intra school competition.
We at Rowlatts, aim to provide the pupils with a range of different experiences. Therefore, we frequently have outside agencies coming into school to work closely with pupils. Such 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 Riders, Leicester City Football Club, Leicester Foxes, Leicester Badminton and also DMU Moving Together. Such CPD experiences from outside agencies, combined with the in house CPD delivered by the Physical Education Leads has resulted in an increased in staff confidence in the delivery of Physical Education.
