PE and Sports
Here at Prospect Vale, PE, School Sport and Physical Activity are a huge part of our learning. Our school offers a wide variety of sporting activities with our extra-curricular clubs and links with clubs accross the borough. We pride ourselves on giving our children a range of opportunities during PE curriculum time, after school and enrichment days by using experts in school and using outside agencies.
We are members of the Stockport SHAPES alliance and access an enormous range of competitions, special events and activities for all our children. Mrs Wall currently comes into school every Wednesday, delivers ongoing CPD to staff and team teaches with Mrs Hall. Half termly groups of children are selected to work on specialist areas to further develop skills. Staff CPD is a very important part at PV allowing many opportunties for staff to increase their expertise in different areas of the curriculum.
Progressive Sports South Manchester come into school and the children are familiar with the staff attending. They currently run a before and after school club and offer a range of physical activities at lunchtime.
Prospect Vale are very proud of their commitment to keeping our children physically active and have been instrumental in creating events that have been introduced borough wide - Santa Dash, The Big leap.....
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 Sports Ambassadors/leadership team
Pupils from Years 5 and 6 are trained up by the fabulous Stockport SHAPES team and Mrs Hall and are expected (as part of their job role) to assist in events throughout the year and deliver games and activities at playtimes.
SMILE FOR A MILE :)
Our pupils really enjoy 'Smile for a mile' and on the days we are rained off they are disappointed to miss their run!
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. Each class ensures they do a 10 minute run at least once a week (daily weather permitting!) 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! We have featured 'Smile for a mile' in whole school challenge weeks, personal challenges and fun/charity runs including our annual Santa Dash.
