Chapel St Leonards Primary School are delighted to announce they have built upon their sporting success of last year by upgrading from Silver to Gold in the School Games Awards.
The school have worked hard to provide further opportunities during their PE lessons, extra-curricular sports clubs and competitions.
Whilst increasing engagement and attendance figures with the range of extra-curricular sports clubs on offer, they have also improved club links, directing pupils to external sports clubs within the Chapel St Leonards and Skegness area.
There has been a focus on increasing activity for targeted less active children, aligning with more opportunities to partake in external competitions which have seen over 95% of pupils from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 experience at least one event.
Leadership skills have improved with pupils given the opportunity to support coaching and officiating in Curriculum PE, whilst there has been enhanced participation within inter-school sports competitions, some events including three teams from the school!
Mr Shaw, Head of PE at the school, commented:
“We are extremely proud to have achieved the Gold Sports Kite Mark. The credit goes to the children who have worked hard in lessons to develop their skills in a wide range of sports. Not only have they competed at a high level, they have shown fantastic determination and sportsmanship at every event. Watch this space for even more exciting opportunities in 2019/20.”
