Dorset School Games Organiser Update
Posted: Fri, 30 Oct 2020 16:09
The Dorset SGO's are already busy with their autumn term delivery of the Primary Leadership Academy across the county. The SGO's have created a primary leadership pack which they can deliver to children in schools face-to-face, or they can leave the resource for primary colleagues to follow and deliver their own leadership training.
The Primary Leadership Academy
The Primary Leadership Academy (PLA) programme is currently underway for all primaries across the county. The SGO's have created a primary leadership pack which they can deliver to children in schools face-to-face, or they can leave the resource for primary colleagues to follow and deliver their own leadership training.
The PLA programme provides an excellent pathway into volunteering for all young children. The aim of the programme is to provide children with age appropriate training, to access the skills and knowledge required to organise simple, fun activities that will keep their peers and younger children happy and busy during breaks from learning.
The process of training helps to develop children's confidence, competence and their ability lead others. Young children designing and providing a programme of enjoyable activities and events in their own school - that are age appropriate, positive and rewarding - will make a huge contribution towards children and young people living healthy and active lives in the future!
For more information about the PLA, please contact your School Games Organiser - their contact details are listed below and further information can be found about their roles here.
Physical Activity Calendar
The Physical Activity Calendar aims to give schools themes and project ideas for their staff, students and communities. These can provide a short-term focus for a day, or a longer-term focus week. Have a look and select one or more that may support your own school themes/calendar.
The themes include a mix of the following: major sporting events, physical activity, wellbeing, mental health and healthy eating. They also include a few others which can suit a cross curricular approach in a class or year group, or a whole school approach.
