Educational Sport at School: the school sports model of a municipality that is committed to physical activity for educational and comprehensive training purposes.

Elaboration and definition of a school sports model based on an educational methodology that places the child as the protagonist: 360° Education.

The Martorell City Council, through the Municipal Board of Services for the Care of the People of Martorell (PMSAPM) promoted the reformulation of its model of sports at school age to turn the school into a keyspace for learning and evolution in a comprehensive manner throughout the educational stage and integrate it into the 360º Education project that was being initiated in the educational field from the municipality.

Thus, Itik Consulting developed this project to create a sports model with these characteristics from a global and integrative perspective within the educational framework. Once the bases of the Educational Sport in School were established, the creation of the Charter of Physical Activity and Sports Services in out-of-school hours took place, which materialized the school sports model projected under the quality standards desired by the municipal corporation.

To elaborate this Charter of Services, the main curricular contents were identified, as well as the educational projects of the different schools of Martorell to determine the singularities of each one and to be able to elaborate a program adapted to them. And, at the same time, different participative sessions were developed with the principals of the different educational centers, as well as with their teaching staff, sharing and collaborating directly with the main agent of the project: the schools.

The aims pursued in the development of the Charter of Services were:

  • Consolidate the school as a key space for sports learning throughout the educational stage.
  • Promote physical activity and sport as a tool at the service of citizenship, as a vehicle for improvement in the field of health, education, and social equity.
  • Encourage physical activity and sport with an educational and comprehensive training purpose for children and teenagers between the ages of 3 and 12.
  • To connect the different school schedules, turning them into key axes of the local community.

This Charter of Services has become effective for the current academic year 2021-2022 and the children of Martorell can already enjoy its programs and activities from this year. You can consult all the information at this link.
