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 well being 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

Ribble Valley Year 3&4 Football

An unusually warm and sunny day saw the twelve Ribble Valley Schools come together to compete for the Ribble Valley Year 3&4 Football Crown. Teams were in three groups and all played each other in the group stages with the top eight teams qualifying for the quarter final knock out stages.

In the quarter finals Salesbury A beat St Marys Langho A 2 – 0, Pendle A beat St Michael and St Johns 1 – 0, Whalley beat Simonstone 1-0 and Salesbury B beat Pendle B 2-1.

In the semi-final Whalley beat Salesbury A and Pendle A beat Salesbury B to see Pendle A and Whalley meet in the final whilst Salesbury A and Salesbury B played off for third place. Exciting football was played by both teams but in the end it was Pendle A who clinched the title with a 1 – 0 win whilst Salesbury A were victorious in their match.

Thanks must go to St Augustine’s High School for hosting and providing referees and to Accrington Stanley Community Trust for supporting the event.

A Young Ambassadors training session was held at Accrington Academy on the 16th October. A total of 23 Primary Schools from the Hyndburn & Ribble Valley attended the event. Each school invited 2 students to come along to take part in the training, Jenna Downing the World Champion inline skater presented the training. Jenna spoke about her determination and motivation to achieve the best, she get the students thinking about what a young leader is, there roles, attributes and skills needed. The students were a credit to their schools and really engaged in the training, action planning how they could improve PE & Sport in their own schools. The students went away with a hat/t-shirt/pen/badge and a booklet they can work through to provide them with more ideas on how they can be great young ambassador in their school. We would like to wish all the students the best of luck with journey as a young ambassador!!

This year’s primary cross country event proved to be very popular as we had 26 Hyndburn teams & 17 Ribble Valley teams taking part. The primary schools had obviously been working very hard training their children as they showed some fantastic running down at Wilsons Athletics Track in Clayton. Prior to the event starting we had lots of setting up to do with the great help from the volunteers from Hyndburn Athletics Club, Moorland students, St Christopher’s leaders and marshalling the event Accrington Academy leaders. The Partnership would like to thank all the individuals that helped this event run smoothly. Each team consisted of up to 6 girls and 6 boys, the top 4 girl/boy runners scored points for their school. Below displays the top 3 individual runners for each race and the overall girls/boys team along with overall Hyndburn & Overall Ribble Valley team scores.

The top 25 runners within each race have been selected to run in the East Lancashire County Final on the 20th June at Townley Park. Well done to all these!! If you would like to see any pictures taken from the event Kipax were down at the event taking some excellent photos WWW.KIPAX.COM

Ribble Valley Kids Cup Football Competition

On Friday 5th October the Ribble Valley primary schools came along to St Augustine’s football pitches to take part in the Year 5/6 football competition. Leaders & referees from St Augustine’s helped the event run smoothly, refereeing all the games. Lee Walsh from Accrington Stanley came along to support the event and give his expertise when the tense situation of penalties had to take place. BIG thank you to these for all the help at the event!

The teams were placed in 3 group and then 8 teams progressed on to the quarter-finals. The schools that won their group were ST Marys Langho winning all 3 games, Salesbury & St Leonards A team. The semi-final saw St Marys playing Edisford 0-0, Edisford then qualified for the Final in the very tense penalties. Salesbury played St Leonards A which resulted in a well-deserved win again from St Leonards A. These top 4 teams have been invited back to the finals day on the 12th December to compete to represent Accrington Stanley in the kid’s cup.

The final finishing position and the overall winning team was St Leonards A team and they also qualified for the Lancashire Finals to the Danone Cup on 25th January 2019.

Fantastic effort from all the teams that took part!
