In Summer 2015, Year 7 pupils attended a Sports Leaders Playmakers Course provided through Solent University which our pupils thoroughly enjoyed.
Since, Chamberlayne has become an accredited centre to run Sports Leaders and we are rolling out delivery of the scheme with our pupils.
Sports Leaders play an active roll in the delivery of sporting events throughout the year as well as during transition day, city wide festivals and Sport Relief.
We are signed up to the ‘Sky Sports Living for Sport Scheme’ which gives pupils the opportunity to receive a visit from an athlete mentor who is often a GB or Olympic athlete.
We attended a County wide event in January 2016 and took a small group of existing sports leaders to Portsmouth to take part in an Inclusive Leadership training day where they learned about disability sport and how to make activities inclusive for all.
The PE department is actively running Sports Leaders Level 1 with Year 7 in Spring 2016 with the intention that all trained pupils can deliver festivals this summer.
We have a close working relationship with Solent University and three Sports Development Degree students are currently running a Girls Football Leadership Course here after school over ten weeks which helps each pupil develop skills and following ongoing assessment, achieve a certificate.
Year 6 PE Transition
We have been working closely with Weston Park Primary School over recent months in tutoring Year 5 and 6 pupils through the Playmakers award. Spread over four weeks, pupils follow a syllabus which includes consideration of the FAST PACE which means:
FAST = Fun - Activity - Safety - Teamwork
PACE = Participants - Area - Communication - Equipment
We have open discussions on the following types of questions:
Q: What makes a good leader?
Q: When do you use leadership skills in life?
Q: Who are your participants?
Q: What safety factors do we need to think about?
Q: How do we make the activities more challenging or easier?
Q: How do we communicate?
Q: How do we know if participants are learning and enjoying themselves?
