Littletown School is now involved in the 'Sporting Age' program which has been created and delivered by Legacy Sports.
Legacy Sport have a vision for all young people to be "physically literate" by the time they leave primary school. This means they will be confident and competent in fundamental movement skills and ready to embark on an active secondary education. Physical Literacy is the key to the health and well-being of a young person.
They have developed our innovative 'Sporting Age' software, which will start to help develop a young persons physical literacy for PE, Sport and lifelong health.
The 'Sporting Age' team conducts an initial baseline physical assessment for each class. Each child's individual needs is then highlighted across a range of fitness components and shared with the class teachers through specific CPD/Training. The results help school staff to consider what age and stage appropriate interventions are needed in order to maximise the potential to develop the physical literacy of all students. Lesson plans are provided for the academic year 2017/18.
Throughout the year the 'Sporting Age' team will conduct two more tests and use the results to demonstrate the progress made and generate more age and stage appropriate lesson plans.
