Virgin Sport Project

As part of our successful bid for Virgin Sport funding, we will be launching our school project next week. The project will develop the skills of our staff and Sports Ambassadors to increase physical activity of pupils at lunchtime, promote positive social situations, whilst upholding and respecting children’s right to be healthy and play.

On Monday 15th January, our lunchtime staff will receive specialist sports training from Youth Sports Trust. The training will involve new strategies and equipment to enhance play times. In addition to this, on Tuesday 16th January we are delighted to welcome Olympic Athlete, Jeanette Kwakye. All of the children will meet Jeanette at a whole school assembly and have the opportunity to ask her any questions they might have. Furthermore, Year 5 and 6 will have training sessions with Jeanette that will teach them how to deliver and lead physical activity during play times.
