Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Sarginson, Mrs Hill or Mrs Dixon
Please see the safeguarding section of our website under Policies > Safeguarding.
Our sports leaders have been attending competitions alongside Mr Beamish and have written up their post-competition reports. You can find these by clicking the link below.
We have been working hard to create a plan for active breaktimes to complete with children in other year groups. We have been thinking about what skills we could teach to others and how to engage younger children in being active!
We have spent the start of the Autumn term working with Mr Beamish to complete our Sports Leader award. We have completed 6 after school sessions developing our sporting skills, creating session plans and practising coaching each other so we can lead fun, active breaktimes with younger children.
Throughout the year Sports Leaders conduct pupil voice groups, asking pupils from all year groups which skills, clubs or sports they would like to see more of in school. One of the things that this allows is the chance for pupils to reflect on their own learning from our PE sessions taught in school and raise their own preferences for further opportunities to rehearse a key skill. It also allows children the chance to express an interest in different sports which they might be interested in and want the opportunity to experience. This might reflect sporting opportunities outside of school in the local area or events in the wider community (e.g. Olympics, Paralympics, Commonwealth Games, World Cup, Ashes etc).
From these pupil voice groups, Sports Leaders feedback to Mr. Beamish and Miss Lines who look for afterschool clubs or lunchtime club opportunities to offer, and the Sports Leaders help to plan and run lunchtime clubs and activities for younger children in the school to participate in. Some sports offered include lacrosse, badminton, athletics and dance.
