Legacy School Day Support (Sport Premium)

 

At Legacy Sport we believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to develop their Physical Literacy & experience a high quality physical education curriculum. 

Legacy Sport is committed to developing physical literacy in young people, it forms the basis of all our Curriculum Day support. Physical literacy can be seen as the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that provides children with the movement foundation for lifelong participation in physical activity. Enabling young people to be physically literate supports their development as competent, confident and healthy movers. Through our provision of structured breakfast & after school clubs & curriculum day support, we believe we are providing the young people within our schools the opportunity to fully develop their physical literacy. 

Legacy Sport currently train, support & deliver in over 20 schools each week, keeping over 5000 children active. We actively promote collaborative working in order to maximise impact around sport premium funding. We encourage partner schools to become Youth Sport Trust members in order to access an enhanced menu of resources, CPD and support. Legacy are committed to helping schools to fulfil the requirements of the OFSTED Physical Education criteria & our curriculum is developed in line with this.

3) Annual Competition Calendar:

Designed to promote maximum participation for all young people in structured, appropriate competition. Working in conjunction with SGO’s, YST and NGB’s we will aim to increase participation in high quality Sainsbury’s schools games events.

Links to Community Clubs/ NGB competition

Legacy will always aim to provide an exit route following coaching or events to encourage participation in community settings. We will develop sustainable partnerships with community clubs, secondary schools and NGB’s. Annual training will help to increase the pool of volunteers and AOTT’s who can assist in organising sessions and events.

Habits 4 Health™

In our Habits4health™ programme young people learn how to eat more healthily and partake in the required amounts of physical activity per week. They are encouraged to share this information with families thus improving the wider health of the community. This has seen over 90% of young people demonstrating increased levels of understanding about healthy, active lifestyles. Targeted year groups each year will learn about nutrition and appropriate activity levels within school based sessions. This will hopefully lead to young people making more informed lifestyle choices.
