- The Cheadle Academy Service Level Agreement for Transition and Cluster Sports Events – The Cheadle Academy provide a link teacher to lead events between the cluster schools to encourage and promote competition, health and fitness events and transition opportunities. These events include Y1/2 multi-skills activities, Y3/4 Tag-Rugby Festival, Dance Festivals, Y5/6 Inclusion Activity afternoons, Y6 Transition mornings and a Celebration Sports Awards Evening. These events have raised the profile of sport in our schools and encouraged participation. They also promote our cluster of schools within the local community.
- Playground Markings – The markings on our recently resurfaced playgrounds have transformed and brightened up the outdoor areas. This helps not only with the organisation of games during playtime and curriculum lessons, but encourages the children to become more spatially aware. The children and the staff are more enthusiastic about using our outdoor facilities for learning. The markings have been carefully chosen to be enjoyable for the children and to be educational. They are durable and will hopefully be in place for years to come. It is hoped that we can add to them when resources become available.
- Lunchtime Supervisor – The work to train our lunchtime staff is having a success in reducing poor behaviour amongst the children at lunchtime and promoting activity levels. Staff feel more confident and are more capable in encouraging pupils to participate in active games to improve health and fitness levels. This has had an enormous impact at lunchtimes resulting in increased physical activity levels of pupils as well as increased confidence, self-esteem and responsibility. This increased activity at lunchtimes also means that the children are energised and feel more ready to continue with their learning during the afternoons. As new staff are employed, the knowledge that more long-standing members of staff have gained is then shared so that we continue to maintain a well-trained lunchtime staff team with high levels of motivation. This will continue for future years.
- Playground Resources – Sports Equipment has been purchased not only to support curriculum teaching but mainly to enhance the activity levels of the pupils both at break and lunchtimes. Our aim is to encourage and support the children to achieve the current health recommendations to be active for an hour a day. This equipment will be used in the future and be replaced when needed. Lunchtime staff will continue to guide and be involved with the children’s activities.
