How the 2016/17 improvements will be sustainable in the future
Membership to Mid Cornwall Sports Network
Children are exposed to a wide range of sporting activities through cluster events at FRA and Mid Cornwall area events. By providing this range of competition, children will be more likely to lead healthy and active lifestyles in the future. They will also enjoy the challenge of competition against their peers from other schools. This year our Year 5/6 football and netball teams both won their area leagues. The children who took part in these games gained confidence, leadership and teamwork skills, whilst displaying sportsmanship and empathy for their opponents. Teachers also have opportunities to complete sporting CPD courses for their benefit and for the benefit of children for years to come.
GoActive Teacher CPD
All KS1 and KS2 Children have been taught new games and skills relevant to their age and experience. In particular, KS1 children and staff have benefitted from learning new disability and Paralympic sports, including goal ball and seated volleyball. This inclusive sports training not only supported CPD for all staff, but also gave those children with disabilities a chance to compete on a completely level starting point, without the task having to be differentiated. GoActive also provided specialist equipment which increased the interest in the PE lessons, particularly of those children who may not enjoy traditional activities (Urban Polo and Rocketball).
