Back to School for PE Team

19th September 2017

The PE in Schools team are back for the start of the new school year. The team comprising of Kerri, Ollie and Steph will be working with predominantly year 3 and 4 delivering PE lessons alongside the class teacher.

Now entering it’s 7th year, PE in Schools has gone from strength to strength with the programme now encompassing a number of smaller projects. The mission however remains the same.

To engage children in physical education

To develop their key skills

To inspire children to engage in school and community sport.

The core programme sees children in Year 3 and 4 receive 15 weeks of PE split over 3 termly blocks with each term focusing on different sports depending on the season. This year the team aim to work with over 1000 children and introduce them to 17 different sports over 2 years.

Participating schools are also offered 2 Fit Clubs each term which encourages children to stay active either at lunchtime or after school. The clubs remain free to ensure that those who can really benefit from attending the clubs are able to do so.

Outside of school the team will be working with local sports and coaches to provide an increasing amount of community opportunities to young people. Our festival events aim to provide children with an additional positive opportunity for children in year 3 and 4 to try a new sport whilst giving them the confidence to sign up to a local club.

PE and Sport Development Officer, Steph Batiste is excited about the year ahead. ‘I’m once again looking forward to meet a new group of children, introducing them to new sports and seeing them developing new skills, PE is for everyone and we hope to inspire more children to enjoying being active’, she said.

The team will be working at the following schools…

Kerri – Amherst, Beechwood, Blanchelande, Castel, LMDC, Melrose and St Martins

Ollie – Hautes Capelles, La Houguette, St Mary St Michael and Vale

Steph – Amherst, Forest, Notre Dame, Vauvert
