Our Vision Statement
Our sports council works together as a team to ensure that sports is inclusive and accessible by all pupils in our school. We ensure that all pupils have a voice and share their opinions in all sporting issues and needs.
Our Sports Council has 4 main aims:
1. We aim to listen to others and discuss comments and suggestions that would enhance children’s involvement with sport.
2. Share ideas to improve provision for active lifestyles.
3. Promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles through providing sports activities which are inclusive.
4. Reflect on children’s experience of PE in lessons and in cluster competitions.
What is the Sports Council?
The Sports Council is an inclusive, structured forum for discussion and decision making. It is
made up of two children from each class from Year 2 to Year 6. The Sports Council meets up every Monday afternoon, therefore providing a means for children to have a voice in relation to active lifestyles and sports. From time to time we invite a special guest to our meeting from the student body. This could be from the school council or eco team, where a joint goal or aim may be shared. A recent example includes discussions around raising awareness around healthy living. Structuring our meetings this way ensures that sport is seen as inclusive and accessible to all members of the school.
How do I find out what happened?
Class representatives will feed back to their class as soon as possible. The main points of the meetings and the action plan are available on the school website.
What have we achieved?
· Silver then Gold Games Mark accreditation.
· Increased school participation in competitive sport.
· Consulting with children to improve the range of after school sports clubs.
· Ensuring upper KS2 children have the chance to use leadership in a sporting context.
In our cluster of schools, competitions take place including various sporting activities annually. This ensures that KS1 and KS2 are involved in wider school sports activities. After each competition, upper KS2 will interview staff members and pupil participants that have attended. From this, the children will use the information to write a blog about the sporting event and from this a Sports Hero is nominated. A Sports Hero is someone that has challenged themselves within that sporting event. This could be shown through resilience, perseverance and by team player skills. The blogs can be viewed on the School Games website.
