Almondbury Community School is celebrating after being rewarded for its commitment to incrasing competitive sport opportunities for pupils through School Games.
To share good practice, schools are encouraged to blog about their competitive school sports activities. Louise and Lucy in Year 6 have been blogging about our school sports on the School Games website. They have included information about competitions both in school and between other schools which shows parents and the wider community first hand what is on offer for our pupils. The girls said, “ We have written blogs about Boccia, which is a ball sport similar to bowls. We wrote about the Year 6 Netball Festival at Rowley Lane, the Dance Festival held here and the Sports Hall Athletics which we entered at Newsome High School.”
Ali Oliver, Interim Chief Executive Officer at the Youth Sport Trust said, ‘We would like to congratulate and thank Almondbury Community School for the great job they are doing with offering competitive sport to more young people. At the Youth Sport Trust we recognise and promote the value and importance of competitive school sport not only to drive physical activity levels, but also to develop young people’s life skills, character and resilience. There is now an overwhelming amount of evidence that indicates active young people do better in school and life."
Well done girls for promoting all the excellent sporting opportunities at Almondbury Community School
