Children identified by the school or through our fit4schools programme have been working successfully in groups with our coaches focusing on their specific needs. This support can develop and improve each individual child’s ability to progress in physical literacy.
We’ve managed to upskill play leaders and demonstrate how to lead engaging activities to promote a positive active environment during lunch times. We’ve also successfully trained and supported pupils who have been chosen by the school to lead activities during lunch breaks. Behaviour management and activity strategies have been incorporated to make lunch times fun, engaging and safe. The strategies in place encourage active play and inclusion providing the opportunity for all children to engage with physical activity.
We’re always enthusiastic in providing children with opportunities to participate in sporting activities and clubs regardless of their ability or social circumstances. Our coaches deliver a wide range of activities to optimise participation and take ownership of registration and dismissal at the end of the session.
Providing children with engaging activities to stimulate the body and mind ready for the school day. Our staff are trained to work with groups of children of different ages and abilities to incorporate an inclusive and positive environment aiding children’s development first thing in the morning.
Fit4schools provided workshops across the school to support the children’s understanding of food and nutrition. Fit4schools staff helped the children link their physical fitness to diet as they were able to discuss the impact of food on performance. The staff were knowledgeable and engaging – as a result we have rewritten our food and nutrition policy inspired by the workshops. Ruth Leach, Headteacher, St Blaise C of E School
