A number of students at were commended last week for their abilities in PE. Gifted and Talented awards were handed out to recognise students’ excellence in individual sports, and to those who excel in all subject areas of the PE curriculum. Mrs Bryce was on hand to present the awards and praised the students for their hard work.

After handing out the awards, Teacher of P.E, Mr. Budd, said:

“As you will have seen from the other sports reports, the current year 7 are a very strong sporting cohort.  Throughout this year we have been identifying students to join the ‘High Performing and Most Able’ register for PE.

High performers are students who demonstrate a talent, ability or skill, which falls outside of what is being currently assessed in their subjects while the most able students are those achieving the highest levels in the subject.

With many students identified and others to follow, we began distributing the badges awarded to these students so they can be recognised for their sporting ability.

Being on the high performance and most able register brings enrichment opportunities as we support their development in sport.  The current year 8 has been working with Olympic Athlete, Heather Fell, while the high performers in years 9 and 10 had the opportunity to visit the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

Students can be added at any time so we encourage parents to let us know of all endeavours out of school hours.  We hope the students identified will wear their badges with pride and act as role models for PE and sport.”
