How can Sporting Age help to develop physical literacy?

In a school context, developing physical literacy is the foundation of PE & school sport so enabling students to be physically literate supports their development as competent, confident & healthy movers. The Sporting Age tool provides accurate baseline testing as well as stage-appropriate interventions that help to develop a young person’s physical literacy for PE, Sport & lifelong health.

At the same time, the Sporting Age tool provides immediate training & support for primary school teachers & helps them to develop their own confidence & competence in delivering PE & Sport.

Assess / Progress / Report

Assess

The first steps are to assess each class through fun, physical, fundamental skills tests. We can then highlight each child’s individual needs across a range of fitness components. The Sporting Age assessments involve fundamental skills testing which form the building blocks of physical literacy.

Progress

The results help teachers to consider what stage appropriate interventions need to focus on in order to maximise the potential to develop the physical literacy of all students.

Report

Personal, class and school reports are created to share with teachers and parents/carers.

Sporting Age will generate a number of clear interventions:

Measuring and Reporting

Measuring and Reporting

Assessments allow teachers to track each pupil’s strengths and areas of improvement and identify their learning needs. Personal, class, and school reports can easily be created to share with parents, teachers, OFSTED and evidence for Sports Premium Funding. You will be able to identify children who are not developing as expected and also those children who are showing signs of being gifted and talented.
