PE Partners at OLOL
At OLOL we have membership of some national and local organisations to support our PE planning, delivery and assessment. We use resources and follow the initiatives provided by these organisations to enhance our school PE offer.
Walking to School
Living Streets: promoting walking and providing useful information, ideas and resources, including:
International Walk to School Month in October.
Brake’s Giant Walk: Walking event in schools every June.
Walk it: Online journey planner for walking.
ESAA Award Scheme at at OLOL
From 2021/2022 we have offered all children in KS2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) the opportunity to attain progressive awards from the English School’s Athletics Association award scheme. This inclusive programme will include all pupils (regardless of ability or need) so that they can develop skills and formal recognition of their achievements in athletics.
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...
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
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!
Every child from Year 1 – Year 6 reached the required distance (through their Daily Mile efforts) to be awarded a London Mini Marathon pin badge! A great sporting achievement OLOL!
