At OLMC, we believe that P.E. and sport plays an important role in helping children lead healthy and active lives, with the potential to change children’s lives for the better. We recognise the importance P.E. play in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with the opportunities to engage fully in Physical Education. The aim of our P.E. programme is to develop children’s basic physical competencies, build confidence in their ability and build the foundations for a lifelong love of sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. P.E lessons encourage children to compete against themselves and others whilst being challenged to improve their physical, social, emotional and thinking skills. These skills are embedded in the heart of our planning and our objectives in the teaching of P.E. align with the National Curriculum. In KS1 and KS2, all children have regular timetabled P.E. sessions totalling two hours per week. We use qualified and suitably trained sports coaches, working alongside the teacher, for one of these hours.


We have recently adopted Get Set 4 P.E. scheme to teach our P.E. across school. The scheme ensure that we fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum, as well as ensuring that children are given a wealth of opportunities to develop their physical movement skills. Each class completes one Get Set 4 P.E. lesson a week, delivered by the class teacher, with the other lesson being based on developing team games, moving on to more competitive games in KS2 – these being delivered by the specialist sports coaches. The timetabling for the sports coaches is done on rota basis and we ensure that each class gets the same amount of time across the academic year to this high-quality provision.


P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life. We strive to achieve a high-quality P.E. experience which inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities including residential experiences build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Timeline photosWe want to make sure that parents don’t need to choose between having a career and having a family.

That’s why today, we’re confirming that from January, more parents will be able to apply to claim their government-funded childcare provision.
As part of the biggest childcare expansion in history, this will give eligible working parents access to 15 hours of childcare per week from April.

New childminders can also receive a financial boost of up to £1,200 with the launch of the Childminder Start-up Grant Scheme starting tomorrow.

We recommend applying for childcare support between mid-January and the end of February to get your code in good time, and avoid having to renew registration ahead of the start of the offer in April.
