10 Sport, Recreation & Young People Presenting existing activities differently Finding new activities for different people Todays kids search out risk, sport is a great way for them to do this Baroness Sue Campbell, Chairperson UK Sport

11 Unpacking the NZC… Vision Confident Connected Actively involved Lifelong learners Principles High expectations Learning to learn Community engagement Cultural diversity Coherence Treaty of Waitangi Inclusion Values Excellence Innovation, inquiry and curiosity Diversity Community and participation Equity Integrity Ecological sustainability Key Competencies Thinking Relating to others Participating and contributing Using language, symbols and text Managing self the NZ Curriculum… a window of opportunity for SPORT

12 WHOLE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT through focus on SPORT and PHYSICAL EDUCATION Sports Specialist schools in the UK have recorded the fastest rates of academic improvement of all UK schools for the past 4 years. Baroness Sue Campbell, Chair UK Sport & Chair Youth Sports Trust (2010) Sport and physical activity can provide a positive impact on improving: academic achievement behavioural outcomes attendance rates healthy lifestyles citizenship and social responsibility aspirations, confidence, self-esteem and pride

13 the UK.... Studies of the benefits of school sport and physical education have shown that as a result of investing in these activities: schools themselves have become happier, healthier and more successful & pupils have greater confidence and self-esteem Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (UK) PE and School Sport Report (PESS) 2007

14 and out of CANADA..... Physical Activity has positive influences on concentration, memory and classroom behaviour. Data points to a positive relationship between Physical Activity and intellectual performance. Given competent providers, Physical Activity can be added to the school curriculum by taking time from other subjects without risk of hindering student academic achievement. On the other hand, adding time to "academic" or "curricular" subjects by taking time from physical education programmes does not enhance grades in these subjects and may be detrimental to health. Physical education, physical activity, school sports and performance Trudeau & Shephard 2008 International Journal of Behavioural Nutrition & Physical Activity

15 and from AUSTRALIA..... There is growing evidence that sport and physical education have positive influences on student achievement School sport and physical education improve students concentration, memory, behaviour and academic performance Schools can lift the performance and outcomes for their students by offering programmes designed to maximise participation, enjoyment and personal reward. High performing schools utilise school sport and physical education programs to help motivate students and support learners in their academic work. Improving School Sport and Physical Education in your School Dept of Education & Early Childhood development (Victoria)

16 and in NZ...... Sport has been left out of the discussion in formulating the NZ curriculum Schools are not seeing sport in the context of the NZ curriculum No School Sport personnel at Ministry of Education seen as resourcing responsibility only – kiwisport direct funding Kiwisport direct funding has low accountability in terms of reporting increased disconnection between school sport and PE minimal training for students at primary teachers colleges

17 Sport and physical education in schools is not just a nice to is a need to do Need for an evidence base to support the notion of WHOLE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT through focus on SPORT and PHYSICAL EDUCATION
