The Physical Education Department at RSA Academy Arrow Vale is an ‘Outstanding’ department that is very well received by students. This, as well as our outstanding facilities, allows us to focus upon helping drive achievement and standards up in PE and across the curriculum as a whole.
Redditch Schools Sports Partnership
RSA Academy Arrow Vale works closely with our partner middle and first schools to enhance sporting opportunities and is at the centre of collaboration between all schools in the district and has ensured access is available for all pupils to increase their participation in competitive and recreational sport.
RSA Academy Arrow Vale has been the base for the Redditch Schools Sports Partnership which was established 13 years ago. This has now evolved into RSA Academy Arrow Vale becoming the strategic lead for the ‘School Games’. This partnership is working with all 42 schools, sports clubs and communities in Redditch to increase and enhance their PE and School Sports opportunities for all young people.
The Partnership has successfully promoted intra and inter-school competition in first, middle and high schools, whilst also developing strong links with the sporting community and local clubs. It has had great success in raising sports participation levels with 60% of all pupils now actively involved in school sport, and 100% involved in intra-school sport.
Arrow Vale PE department has been the hub site for the local Leadership Academy and Multi-Skills Academy, and supports Gifted and Talented athletes through the Junior Athlete Education programme. The department also provides opportunities for our students to work as young leaders and gain accredited qualifications such as Junior Sports Leaders’ Award and the Community Sports Leaders’ Award.
