P. E.

At Ombersley Endowed First School we have always maintained a strong tradition in sport, enabling each child to participate in a range of physical activity. We have been awarded the Sportsmark award, PA Charter Standard for Schools, and Healthy School Status. The emphasis is on encouraging all children to take part readily and to promote enjoyment as well as skill in sport. Children of all abilities are given opportunities to become as involved as possible in sporting activities. As a Healthy School we consider it to be very important that children develop positive attitudes towards their own personal health and fitness that will benefit them in the future.

The children follow a planned, progressive curriculum incorporating dance, gymnastics, outdoor and adventurous activities, athletics, games and swimming for Years 3 and 4. Throughout the Key Stages children take part in both competitive and non-competitive festivals and tournaments with children from other schools within the Pyramid. We have close links with Droitwich Spa High School, a specialist sports college, which helps with providing curriculum opportunities and a variety of after school clubs throughout the year. This has included football, tag-rugby, basketball, gymnastics, hockey, dance, netball, multiskills, rounders and cricket.

Links with the local community sports clubs have been developed and they are involved in supporting us in the curriculum and in after school activities, for example; golf and tennis.

We hold a school sports day and Hindlip, Tibberton and Sytchampton Schools join us for cluster sports days. The Maypole team performs at school and in the village Church fete.

The school hall is equipped with large and small apparatus and there is adventure play apparatus for use at break times. Small apparatus balls, ropes, skittles, games etc are available at playtimes through a Huff and Puff scheme. YR has a range of outside apparatus that is used daily to develop motor skills.
