Focused Playtimes - School Sports Crew

05 Feb 2020

New Playtime Rota - Starts Today (Wednesday 5th February)

We have been looking at making a positive impact to our outdoor playtimes and have reviewed our current provision, spoken to the children and staff and we are pleased to announce that we have selected a School Sports Crew who are going to lead our new provision.

We have collected in all of the old equipment that was outside and have replaced this with 5 different bags containing brand new equipment, one bag for each day.  There is different equipment in each bag and the children will only use the equipment for that day.  There is a member of the school sports crew who is going to get that day's bag out at the beginning of morning play and then put it away again at the end of lunch play. 
We have spoken to the children about being careful with the equipment and using it in the correct way. Due to the number of ball related injuries, there is no football allowed, unless they are taking part in Mr Powell's dedicated session on a Wednesday lunchtime. The children will have basketballs and playground balls on a Monday, but they are for bouncing and catching, not kicking.  The duty staff will monitor with the School Sports Crew, the safe and proper use of all of the equipment.

We recognise that the playground has an impact on children's learning and development.  Play is the key to physical, mental, intellectual and social well being of children.  It is therefore vitally important to children for their fun and relaxation as well as for their good health and well-being.  This new rota will bring a new energy to our playtimes whilst giving the older children the opportunity to use their Leadership, organisation and responsibility skills.
