OLOL Commonwealth Games Celebration 2022

For National Sports Week, we opened our school at 7.55 each morning to allow selected year groups to come in and do sports sessions. We offered handball, active mat keep fit, cricket, basketball, skipping, hurdle racing, daily mile, quoits, tennis, hoops and we have been overwhelmed with how popular it has been! Our Year 6 Sports Leaders have been tasked with being here every day to run the events. THis has been such a successful start to our days that we are going to look at extending this programme...

PE and Sports Leadership at OLOL

OLOL has numerous Sports Leadership Groups that support the drive for PE, sports, fitness, health and wellbeing in our school. The following groups are our Sports Leaders

  • Play Leaders
  • Sports Councillors
  • WUSU Team
  • Bronze Ambassadors

This year our Sports Leaders are working on a shared Leadership Award with OLOL and Bishop Challoner. This will see them completing minimum challenges to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award from the two schools. The children have risen to the challenge admirably so far. We meet each half term as a whole group to discuss what we are doing in PE, sports, activity and fitness in our curriculum, break periods and after school!
