We are delighted to announce that Stalbridge Primary School have been warded the Gold School Games Mark (2018-2019). This is a recognition of the commitment of the whole school community to improve opportunities for sporting competition across the school and in the wider community.
We have been involved in a wider range of sporting activities within school, supported by high level coaching and CPD opportunities for our teaching staff, and the introduction of Real PE to improve agility, balance and coordination skills and build core skills for competitive games. Children have benefitted from the introduction of the Daily Mile, opportunities to use the fitness equipment during PE as well as at lunchtimes, break times and after school clubs.
Sports leaders have led sporting challenges and improved activity levels at break times, supervising games and competitive activities, such as Mission to Mars and our annual celebration of sports at Sports Day. Children have been encouraged, through pupil voice, to take a leading role in assessing and helping us improve the provision throughout the school day and after school.
There has been a high level of participation in sporting competitions, with opportunities for all children who would like to participate in sports, including Pupil Premium and those children with SEND. We have also had the opportunity of taking part at the North Dorset Games events.
Well done, to every member of our school, who have shown a great attitude to improving our fitness, health and competitive spirit throughout the year. We are pleased that everyone's hard work has been rewarded with the Gold Mark.
