Vision For Physical Education

At Ombersley Endowed First School, we believe that Health and Well Being is paramount. Physical Education and Sport play a vital role in the physical, emotional and intellectual development of all children. Physical Education and sport is so important in giving children the knowledge, understanding and the tools to make informed choices about healthy living and to have a positive impact on their health and well being.

As part of our vision, we aim to;

  • Improve the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
  • Raise the profile of PE and sport across the whole school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all pupils.
  • Increase participation in competitive sport.
  • Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of our staff in teaching PE.

PE and Physical Activity at Ombersley

We aim for children in Reception to achieve the Physical Development Early Learning Goal.
KS1 and KS2 work towards meeting the attainment targets set out in the National Curriculum and the children have the opportunity to participate in a broad range of physical activity with the teachers and specialist coaches.
In addition to the traditional sports being played at school, we also invite in coaches to deliver their specialist sport, such as Golf and Yoga. These sessions with external coaches also contribute towards staff CPD as they take place during curriculum time.
Year 3  and 4 swimming sessions take place at Droitwich Leisure Centre in the Autumn term and then Year 2 and Year 3 have swimming sessions in the Summer term.

This is how we will be spending our money this year.

All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
