Intent

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. All children have regular timetabled P.E. sessions totalling at least 2 hours per week. We used qualified and suitably trained sports coaches who work alongside the class teacher for one of these sessions to make a valuable contribution to improving the quality and range of school sport offered in school. It is important to us that the class teacher and coach work together and therefore we believe it is vital that a teacher is upskilled and supported and not replaced or displaced by coaches. The practice of the coach working alongside the class teacher can help develop the teachers’ confidence and competence within a particular area of activity and can provide children with an exciting and engaging P.E. experience utilising the skills of both the teacher and coach working together.

Implementation

We fulfil the requirements of the national curriculum and this is achieved using our Real P.E. scheme of work throughout the whole school. From this, children at OLMC able to develop and focus on their agility, balance and coordination, promotion of healthy competition and cooperative learning. Each class completes one Real P.E. lesson per week and the other lesson is based on developing team games, focusing on attacking and defending and moving onto more competitive games within Key Stage 2 – these being delivered by the specialist sports coaches, alongside the class teacher. 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. Progression booklets will be shared with the children at the beginning of their lesson to enable them to revisit their prior learning, be confident articulating their new learning and see what their learning will take them as they move through school. This will develop a knowledge of the purpose of their learning and where they sit upon their journey.

Impact

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. A high-quality physical education curriculum 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. Assessment will take place against ‘I can statements’ at the end of each academic year. This assessment will be against each area of physical education learning.

Many of the games that children play online are free. As adults, we know things are rarely truly free so it’s worth considering whether something is free to access because we are the product, paying with our data, time or attention. One of the real benefits of in-game spending is that most platforms and services will allow parents to exercise a certain amount of control over what their children are able to do. It is possible to limit the types of transactions as well as the amount of money that they are able to spend.

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly had an impact on online gaming with the popular online gaming platform Steam breaking its own record for the highest number of players playing at the same time on the platform six times during 2020 as reported by Eurogamer. Findings from Barclays Games and Esports report also revealed that the games industry saw the largest increase in spending in 2020, up by 43% compared to 2019.
