Stride Active Recognition Awards
At Stride Active we want to recognise examples of good practice and dedication shown to increasing physical activity levels amongst young people. We have therefore developed a recognition scheme, whereby each half term we will identify one school that has demonstrated this.
St Josephs Primary School
We would like to recognise St Josephs Primary School for their participation in the Virtual School Games! There have been lots of schools taking part but we have been really impressed with the whole-school engagement in all of the challenges. When we visited, we were so impressed by the children and it was amazing to see them having such a good time being active.
Thank you to the staff at St Josephs Primary School for supporting this opportunity and inspiring lots of young people to take part in the challenge.
Ledbury Primary School
We would like to recognise Ledbury Primary School for their participation and enthusiasm in the Virtual School Games! We know there have been lots of schools taking part but we have been really impressed with parent and whole-school engagement in the challenge. We’ve even seen teachers incorporate some maths into the challenges by asking pupils the difference in centimetres between their height and jump!
Thank you to the staff at Ledbury Primary School for facilitating this opportunity which has definitely inspired lots of young people to take part in the challenge.
Walford Primary School
We would like to recognise Walford Primary School for using physical activity in lessons to keep their pupils active. We know that sometimes it can be hard to make lessons active but we have seen so many examples from their school. SuperMovers times tables, hunting outside for signs of spring, re-enacting the moon landing, using movements to remember the old testament and prime number golf to name a few!
Thank you to the staff at Walford Primary School for facilitating this learning which has encouraged lots of young people to be physically active.
Leominster Primary School
We would like to recognise Leominster Primary for providing martial arts as a new activity in their extra-curricular programme, which has engaged lots of new young people. We have been celebrating ‘Find Your Brave’ this half term and we think that there are lots of young people who have shown how brave they are by trying a completely new activity. It’s fantastic to hear that this activity has engaged young people who normally wouldn’t be as active.
Thank you to the staff at Leominster Primary School for facilitating this opportunity which has definitely inspired lots of young people to be physically active.
We were very impressed with all of the fantastic social media coverage during their October Fitness Challenge, particularly how they celebrated staff and parent engagement in the process! Since this, Stride Active have continued to share Weston’s activities as examples of good practice; from dance, to yoga, to maintaining the fitness challenges!
We would like to say thank you and well done to all of the staff, students and parents of Weston-under-Penyard Primary School.
