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

KS1 Gymnastics

This week we held our KS1 Gymnastics festival at the Ribble Valley Acrobatics Academy. The event was high paced, all the children were amazed by the facilities and thoroughly enjoyed exploring all the equipment. 7 schools attended with another 8 due to attend next week, all the children did a carousel around 3 different activities. The activities included Circus tricks, boxed equipment learning jumps/forward rolls & travelling on equipment such as bars, beam & trampolines. This was all very fun for the children and I am sure they will all be enthused to take up gymnastics in their spare time. The event would not have been possible without the volunteer coaches & staff at the Academy, they did a fantastic job.

On behalf of the schools & partnership we would like to thank them!

Hyndburn Year 3&4 Gymnastics Thursday 21st March

Hollins High school hosted this event which had a smaller turn out than usual. However, the standard was extremely high with all gymnasts performing on the beam and the floor. With guest judge Yasmin from Burnley Best Centre and young gymnasts from Hollins to help with the scoring, judging and general organisation every single gymnast performed to the best of their ability.

The overall results were dominated by Peel Park who have been working very hard on their gymnastics – it just shows what can be achieved by a great deal of determination and hard work. Well done to all who took part.

1st – Peel Park A

2nd – Peel Park B

3rd – Peel Park C

4th – Baxenden

KS1 Dance Festival

St Augustine’s was a new host for this event, but their young leaders took to the event like a duck to water. Six schools were in attendance and the children did a group warm up and practiced some movement skills before learning a large group dance to Calvin Harris and Rag ‘n Bone Man – Giant. They then performed the dance to the parents that were watching before moving round a circuit of fun activities with props. Well done to everyone involved.

Dance Festival – Wednesday 20th March

Another great event was held at the Oswaldtwistle Civic Theatre. For some children this was the first time that they had ever performed on a real stage and the excitement backstage was palpable. The Greatest Showman had a big influence on the choice of songs and the performances, costumes and choreography was of the usual high standard.

B Team Football

B Team Football – Thursday 15th March

With a second event having to be scheduled for the Ribble Valley schools, the weather held off to let us play on the astroturf at Ribblesdale School. Five teams played in a round robin competition and it was great to see a different set of pupils represent their schools – some for the first time. The games were refereed by pupils from Ribblesdale High School and the overall results were as follows:

1st – Salesbury

2nd – St Marys Osbaldeston

3rd – St Marys Langho
