PE and Sports

Here at Prospect Vale we have a very busy calender of sporting events in and out of school. Our school offers a huge variety of sporting opportunities with our extra-curricular clubs and links with clubs accross the borough. But we pride ourselves on giving our children huge opportunities during PE curriculum time by using experts from outside agencies also. 

We are members of the Stockport SHAPES alliance and access an enormous range of competitions and special activities for the children. This includes 2 weekly lessons with Mrs O'Hare, who works with staff and children on a rota system. Staff CPD is also available and we are given many opportunties for staff to increase their expertise in different areas of the PE curriculum.

We have Progressive Sports come into school and the children are familiar with the staff attending. They currently run an after school football club on a Tuesday, Multi sports after school club on a Friday and offer sports activities to all children (on a rota system) every lunchtime on the playground. 

 

At Prospect Vale, we have a number of pupils who help with the provision of sports, physical activities and keeping a healthy lifestyle across our school.

The Playground leaders

This is made up of 10 Year 5's who have formally applied for the position and have shown willingness in promoting sports and healthy living in school. They are required to assist in planning and helping at sporting activities in school and encourage pupils within school to be more active. Mrs O'Hare trained the whole class to be playground leaders in the Autumn term 2019.

Take at look at some of our the fantastic sports activities we do at PV!

 

SMILE FOR A MILE :)

The aim of this is to get our children really active regularly, extra to the 2 hour PE curriculum time that all our pupils receive. The team from the SSP came to launch the scheme with some of our children a few years ago and measured out our playgrounds. Each class ensures they do a 15 minute run at least once a week and the childrens laps are recorded. At the end of each half term there should be some lap winners, a house group champion and some spirit awards for super effort! Even though our reception class are not as strictly monitored, they have been doing their own 15 minute playground run every week and have been really enjoying joining in the fun. Take a look at our reception class having fun while they 'Smile for a mile'.

 

This year our 'Smile for a mile' is called RUN TO TOKYO :)

We will be montioring how far we get each half term on our road to Tokyo. We are hoping as a whole school to have travelled 5,869 miles (which is approx how many miles it is from Stockport to Tokyo) by 24th July 2020, The day the Olympic games begins!
