“We are in our second year of working in partnership with SAS Academy and the partnership has grown from strength to strength. We started working together, with them providing two after school clubs for our pupils ranging from R – Y6. We had a great take up of these clubs, and the feedback from our families was how easy it was to make bookings and payment and the structured skilled sessions they wanted their children to engage with.
As we have moved into our second year of partnership, we now have SAS Academy supporting us with our PE provision. All areas of PE skills are outlined across the year groups and demonstrate clear skill progression. We now have coaches supporting the delivery of our PE curriculum from R – Y6. This is tracked against the Oasis Primary PE curriculum to ensure that the development of knowledge and skill is evident across each year group from R – Y6.
In addition to the skill and knowledge-based approach to the teaching of PE and the after-school club provision, SAS Academy have provided us, as a school, with the coaching capacity to enable us to have our first Y5/6 boys football team to compete in the Croydon League for the first time in 5 years.
We have close links with both coaches that work across the 3-day provision and any concerns from both parties are raised and addressed jointly.
We certainly have seen the level of skill development and PE expectation rise, since we have developed our strong partnership with SAS Academy and hope there are further opportunities to engage with the different aspects of provision, they provide moving forward to ensure that our children are given the best PE knowledge and skill development opportunities.”
