Help to carry on under COVID

They can also support your school with wider PE, school sport and physical activity needs, so get in touch

Developing pupils' soft skills

Leadership is a valuable skill, so let young leaders take charge and have the ownership of delivering the Virtual Surrey School Games. Children like nothing more than to be given responsibility to demonstrate how good they are. For those children still in school this could be a way of motivating them and giving them some responsibility. 

Sports Organiser Squad training for primary schools gives young leaders the confidence and skills to organise competitions within the comfort of their own school environment. Once trained they will understand how to give their fellow pupils the chance to participate in a way that suits them, ensuring that no-one gets left behind.

Sport

Cross Country

Dance

Rugby League

Badminton

Why has this activity been chosen?

Focusing on personal best and competing against yourself. 

 

 

 

 

Creative dance provides many physical and mental benefits; mobility, flexibility, co-ordination, self confidence and self-esteem. Exploring emotions and feelings through storytelling and music can assist those experiencing trauma.

Focused on teamwork, connections and building friendships, in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Supporting individuals who may be suffering from loneliness and a lack of belonging.

 

Focusing on personal best achievements, building resilience and developing fundamental movement skills for those who may be lacking competency and fitness from being away from the school environment for a prolonged time.
