Sports Council Information

​This year we have created a new Sports Council in school. Children were selected from Years 3,4,5 and 6 at the start of the year. The Council are in charge of promoting PE and sport in school, increasing participation in sport at lunchtimes and playtimes, sorting out the teams for competitions during the year and holding intra-school competitions. The Sports Council meet every 2-3 weeks to evaluate their progress and decide on next steps.

Some of the things discussed at the meetings are:

  • -Sorting and organising of competitions.

  • -Play leaders and how to monitor them at lunchtimes.

  • -After school clubs, participation and what clubs to have each half term.

  • -Discussion of School Games Values.

  • -Discussing what is a healthy lifestyle and how can we promote it.

  • -New ways to engage reluctant pupils.
