The physical and mental health benefits are enormous from developing good posture, improving hand-eye co-ordination and attaining better balance, as well as, enhancing a child’s self-esteem and self-confidence are all positive benefits. Pupils at Repton Cairo learn through sport to welcome constructive criticism, develop resilience, and adaptability. They will develop the roles of both team player and team leader. They will learn how to manage emotions and perform better, helping them to develop a positive mindset early in their childhood.
We encourage all our pupils to lead an active lifestyle that will benefit them beyond their school years. As well as the main sports programme, there is a highly competitive and developed inter-house sports programme, enabling a greater number of pupils to represent their House. The Sports Community at Repton inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.
Being involved in a variety of sport at Repton Cairo is encouraged for a wide range of reasons.
Respecting authorities’ decisions and accepting failures, just like success, is important in every aspect of life.
At Repton Cairo, we recognise that being part of a sports team helps pupils to interact with people of all ages, and if sport becomes part of their daily routine, pupils will benefit from having better self-discipline, better time-management and a greater ability to focus in lessons, assessments and exams – being physically active helps pupils to stay focused on their learning, enhancing their academic skills. Just as important is having a good night’s sleep of at least 8 hours, enables pupils to focus better, avoid illness and stay healthy.
Pupils should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work.
Pupils are encouraged to build upon and embed the skills learned in Key Stages 1 and 2 to become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
Pupils are taught to:
Use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games (for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby and tennis).
Analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
Develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports for example, athletics and gymnastics.
Take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges and be encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group.
Take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.
Perform dances using advanced dance techniques within a range of dance styles and forms.
