PE Family of Schools
Otley, Pool and Bramhope Cluster
We hope that, through all the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer, the children will potentially develop a love and passion for sport and continue this into their Secondary schools and later lives.
All schools within the Family aim to provide our children with at least 2 hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week and to keep the children healthy and active every day with at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day and by educating them on a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle.
Within the Family, we also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to compete in a variety of competitions, during school time or by representing the school at local events within Leeds and at Prince Henry’s Grammar School. We hope that in doing so the children will develop greater confidence, team work and learn to win or lose with grace and sportsmanship.
It is also of paramount importance that we create sporting leaders within our schools and PHGS. We aim to offer lots of children the opportunity to lead sporting activities, organise games and events and learn to lead by example. By emphasising leadership, we hope the children learn the importance of communication, organisation, team work, resilience, perseverance and respect for rules.
PE and Sport are a proud part of our Family of Schools and we hope that this continues to grow in the future and prepare our children for their future lives.
Purpose of study
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives.
