Health and Wellbeing

The link between Pupil health and wellbeing and attainment:
Pupils with better health and wellbeing are more likely to achieve academically.
Effective social and emotional competencies are associated with greater health and wellbeing, and better achievement.
The culture, ethos and environment of a school influences the health and wellbeing of pupils and their readiness to learn.
A positive association exists between academic attainment and physical activity levels of pupils.
Physical activity has been linked to improved classroom behaviour across the whole school.

The Reality

Nearly a third of children aged 2 to 15 are overweight or obese.
Children from low income backgrounds are the worst affected (twice as likely to be affected by the age of 5, three times as likely by the age of 11)
Chief Medical Officer guidelines says that children should undertake at least 60 minutes and up to several hours of activity each day.
Approximately 75% of primary age children do not currently do the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
From Sept 2017 the sugar tax on soft drinks and sugary snacks will double the primary sports sports premium with more emphasis placed on what schools are doing towards the health and wellbeing of pupils.
Whilst schools cannot possibly provide all of the solutions, they will be tasked with providing at least thirty minutes of vigorous physical activity in every school day.
A new healthy rating scheme for primary schools will be in place from September 2017

Grindleton Slam Dunk To 2nd Title in 2 years.

Oakhill once again played host to the Ribble Valley Basketball competition with 11 schools competing to become Ribble Valley champions. These 11 schools were split into 2 groups with the top 2 from each group progressing onto the final.

Group A included Brookside, Oakhill B, Pendle A, Whalley B, Gisburn and Grindleton. Grindleton topped the group with 21 points from their 5 games (26-3, 13-10, 15-3, 18-11) in second place came Whalley B who managed to get 17 points from their 5 games, Gisburn finished 3rd, Brookside finished 4th, Oakhill B finished 5th and Pendle A finished 6th. In Group B Oakhill A and Oakhill C along with Pendle B, Chatburn, Whalley A. Topping the group was Chatburn with 16 points but scoring 25 basket points ahead of Whalley A who also finished on 16 points but scored 23 basket points, third place was Oakhill A, 4th place was Oakhill C and in 5th place was Pendle B.

The semi-finals were Chatburn vs Whalley B and Grindleton vs Whalley A.  In the early stage the signs were that it would be an all Whalley final however Grindleton managed to get the win to send them to the final where they played Chatburn. The third and fourth place playoff game was Whalley derby and it was an extremely close game but Whalley A took the bronze medals back to school. The final saw Grindleton and Chatburn go head to head for the Gold and Silver medals but it was Grindleton who for the 2nd year in a row won the Ribble Valley section of the Basketball competition leaving Chatburn to take silver.

Santa Claus is coming…………………….. to Accrington

Tuesday afternoon saw nearly 400 Santa, Elves, Christmas Trees and an impressive assortment of Christmas jumpers descend on Hyndburn Sports Centre to take part in the annual Santa run. Following last year’s mud bath and the sheer volume of schools that wanted to take part we decided to hold the event at Hyndburn Sports Centre.

Schools took part in a run of almost a mile and it was great to see so many pupils and teachers complete the course. Once they had completed the run it was inside to take part in a Christmas dance and then to make some Christmas cards and decorations.
