Over the last few terms our team of Sports Leaders have been planning, organising & delivering PE sessions to Castlemead Primary School & Westbury Junior School. It has been a massive learning curve for everyone but the objectives were set & have been met!
We aimed our sessions at children who have additional needs &/or find a PE environment intimidating. We wanted to help them relax, achieve & enjoy being active.
At first we found that we were nervous & didn’t know exactly what to do, but as we practised our leadership skills we began to understand that we just needed to be ourselves, give clear instructions & have fun!
We celebrated everyone’s success at a mini sports festival last Friday. Both primary schools came to FFC & we all played some inclusive games. We even had t-shirts, medals & goody bags all donated by WASP (Wilts & Swindon Partnership)
However, this is just the beginning of our leadership journey! From Sept Fairfield will be introducing Sports Leaders UK to the curriculum. This is a nationally recognised accreditation which will look fantastic on our CVs & hopefully help our all round confidence & ability to work with others.
