We aim to give our children a life-long love for sports, creating a lasting legacy of fitness, health and well-being. We inspire our children to be the best athletes they can be through aspirational figures from the world of sport and actively build positive sporting relationships within the community. We instil a desire in our pupils to be successful in all they do and promote a healthy competitive attitude to help them succeed in all areas of life.

Sports Ambassadors are selected to help run school sports clubs or activities. We help to support our teachers in the planning, set up and delivery of School Games activities. We run intra school competitions/personal challenges so that every child has the opportunity to do physical activity. We are always available to support SSFT when they come into school. We hold regular meetings as a team. We run a Change 4 Life club/create a video of change 4 life activities for children to do. We organise and design a Multi skills festival/ activities. We understand the importance of the different school games values.
The six School Games values – Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination and Teamwork – were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the ‘spirit’ of the School Games.
Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
Be honest with others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Treat other politely, and with understanding. Accept life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Show respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
As part of Disability History Month, we had the lovely opportunity to meet Freya Levy. Freya delivered an inspirational assembly and worked with our children delivering a series of activities such as; bocci, sitting volleyball, curling and bowling. Freya has a background in women’s football and rugby, as well as wheelchair rugby and wheelchair basketball. The children really enjoyed their sessions and came away with an increased understanding of inclusivity in sport.
NEW AGE KURLING
This takes the game of golf as the basis for a New Age Kurling challenge.
SITTING VOLLEYBALL — KEEPY UPPY
To succeed in the Keepy Uppy challenge you need concentration, teamwork, communication and simple volleyball skills. This is a simple challenge to set-up — but hard to beat!
These athletics activities, are specifically for athletes who have vision impairments
(VI). This involves great cooperation, communication and speed!
