We have the silver Games Mark award!
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in
2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the
community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Throughout the year, our Sports Ambassadors will receive various training on how to become a great Sports Ambassador and will be given specific tasks after each session to try and implement in our own school. The Sports Ambassadors have already attended their first meeting at UCC and have been set tasks and goals ready for the next meeting.
In addition to this, their final task as a Bronze Ambassador will be to assist in the delivery of the Key Stage 1 Multiskills Festival on in July alongside all the other Bronze Ambassadors and the Gold and Platinum Ambassadors. This will be a great final opportunity to see the entire Leadership Academy working together to deliver an event for children in Rutland.
Our Sports Council are individuals who are passionate about sport and being active. They are responsible for organising and running the house competitions. They also receive training from Just Do Sports on leading games and activities for other children at lunchtime.
Our year 5 leaders help to run the house competitions and support the year 6s. They are be prepared for the responsibilities of being the future Sports Council for Oakhma C of E.
