    School Games Values

    School Games Values

    The six School Games values - Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination and Teamwork - were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the 'spirit' of the School Games.

    These vaules will be promoted during physical education lesson by the teacher or the Sports Ambassadors.  

     

     Self belief

    You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.

    Teamwork

    Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.

    Determination

    Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your
    dreams. Have the mental strength and the self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be.
    Don’t hold back!

    HoNESTY

    With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.

    Passion

    Giving it 100 per cent, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.

    Respect

    Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.

    We would like to introduce our new Sports Ambassadors for this academic year. They will have various roles and duties around the school. They will organise clubs and activities to run during the school day and set up competitions. They will also be working along side the Rights Respecting Team to promote the British values and rights for children.

    The Daily Mile

     You will probably be aware of recent concerns around physical inactivity and childhood obesity. As they go through primary school, many children put on weight and, across the UK, around 35% of pupils in Year 6 are categorised as overweight or obese. In addition, many 10-year olds lack basic fitness. 

    The Daily Mile is an initiative which was started in February 2012 by Elaine Wyllie, who was then headteacher of a large Scottish primary school. She was concerned by the children’s obvious lack of fitness and went on to prove The Daily Mile to be both sustainable and effective in combatting inactivity and obesity in her school. The result was that, in November 2015, the Scottish Government wrote to every Scottish primary school to recommend that they implement the scheme too. In addition, in August 2016 the UK government’s Childhood Obesity strategy identified and supported The Daily Mile’s contribution towards the recommended hour that children should spend taking daily exercise in school.

    The Daily Mile is very simple to start in a school. Every child in a school or nursery goes out each day in the fresh air to (run or jog at their own pace for 15 minutes). It is not competitive though some will compete and that is fine. Most children will average a mile in the 15 minutes, with some doing more and some doing less. It is not PE, sport or cross-country but physical activity in a social setting which is aimed at improving the children’s physical, social, emotional and mental health, and wellbeing. The children run in their ordinary school clothes with trainers being ideal but not essential. It can help children to focus and concentrate in the classroom and raise their attainment. And most importantly, the children really enjoy it.

    Since 2015, The Daily Mile has been adopted by almost 3,000 schools in the UK alone, proving extraordinarily popular with thousands of children, parents and teachers. The initiative is also attracting strong overseas interest, and schools have signed up in over 40 different countries. Globally, it has been adopted by over 5,000 schools

    As a school we are excited about this new initiative and we are looking forward to the benefits it will bring to your child/children. To find out more about how it all works please visit: www.thedailymile.co.uk.
