Sporting Aims

Sporting Aims at Ysgol Licswm.

 

At Ysgol Licswm we believe in developing the whole child beyond the academic area. We do this by carrying out a wide range of Physical Education Activities.

Since 2003 Ysgol Licswm  has adopted to follow the ‘Dragon Sport’ programme for sport.

Dragon Sport is an initiative of the Sports Council for Wales that has developed in partnership with national governing bodies. The British Association of Advisors and Lecturers in Physical Education (BAALPE) Wales, The Youth Sport Trust and Local Authorities.

 

Dragon Sport objectives are;

ü  to  establish Dragon Sport clubs at Primary Schools and sports clubs

ü  to recruit and train Dragon Sport volunteer sports organisations, leaders and coaches in particular teachers and parents.

ü  to make sport FUN for ALL children

 

All Dragon Sport Information is available in the Dragon Sport file.

 

In addition to these Dragon Sports Objectives at Ysgol Licswm we aim to:-

 

ü  deliver the Programmes of Study and Attainment Targets as stated in the National Curriculum,

ü  provide a wide range of sporting activities

ü  to teach the children to swim correctly and have awareness of safety in and around water
