partnership to life through an emphasis on pictures telling the story rather than the text. Progress has been made in the key targets year on year and although this should be celebrated there is much still to do. The key message of 2 hours curriculum PE seems to be getting across to schools, with 90% of pupils accessing 2 hours of PE and school sport in a typical week in the most recent survey. The challenge ahead for all school sport partnerships is to engage pupils in ‘The Five Hour Offer’ and we attempt to contextualise this through the stories of two youngsters, Jack and Jessica, in this review. At all times the work of the partnership is driven by the benefits to pupils, and all our plans have this as the key objective. With ever increasing initiatives and targets it is possible to forget that the pupils are at the core of our work, but through partnership working, efficient use of available resources and innovation the young people of Salford will continue to benefit in the coming years. We sincerely hope you enjoy this review and we would be delighted to receive your feedback. Dean Gilmore, Partnership Development Manager.

PARTNERSHIP AMBASSADOR

“LIFE IS A JOURNEY. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS AND BE HAPPY IN ALL THAT YOU DO.” SARAH STOREY

“I AM DELIGHTED TO BE THE AMBASSADOR FOR SALFORD SCHOOL SPORT PARTNERSHIPS AND AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF SPORT WITHIN SALFORD. SCHOOL SPORT PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EVERY CHILD AND YOUNG PERSON AND I CAN CERTAINLY ATTRIBUTE SO MUCH OF MY SPORTING SUCCESS TO THE HELP AND SUPPORT I HAD WHEN I WAS AT SCHOOL. AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS, SPORTS TEAMS AND PE LESSONS AT SCHOOL DO, WITHOUT DOUBT, ALLOW EVERY CHILD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY SPORT AND WORK OUT WHAT THEY ARE GOOD AT. I AM DELIGHTED TO BE SUPPORTING THIS SCHEME AND HOPE TO SEE SOME OF OUR FUTURE OLYMPIC TALENT ENJOYING SPORT THROUGH THE WORK OF SALFORD SCHOOL SPORT PARTNERSHIPS.”

CHALLENGING OURSELVES TO IMPROVE, WITH THE COURAGE TO TAKE RISKS AND MAKE DIFFICULT DECISIONS.”

“WE ARE CONSTANTLY SEEKING DIFFERENT OR NEW WAYS TO HELP EVERY PUPIL REACH THEIR POTENTIAL,

WE VALUE OUR ROLE AS THE HUB-SITE

HERE AT ALL HALLOWS WE VALUE OUR ROLE AS THE HUB-SITE FOR THE PARTNERSHIP, AND TAKE SERIOUSLY OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AS SUCH. ALTHOUGH WE ARE SCHEDULED TO MOVE IN TO A STATE OF THE ART SCHOOL AS PART OF BUILDING SCHOOLS FOR THE FUTURE, UPGRADING THE EXISTING PE FACILITIES HAS BEEN A PRIORITY OVER THE LAST 12 MONTHS. WITH A SIGNIFICANT PUPIL INPUT AND SUBSEQUENT OWNERSHIP OF THE PROJECT, THE GYM HAS UNDERGONE A TRANSFORMATION. For the first time in a long time, our facilities are worthy of the myriad of activities provided for the pupils. We start the current academic year with an exciting Key Stage 4 curriculum offer, and through creative timetabling and partnership working, pupils have an average of 8 dedicated staff delivering the curriculum. As with the refurbishment of the gym, the pupil voice was a key factor in selecting the programme. Alongside traditional activities such as football and fitness, pupils can currently choose table-tennis, aqua aerobics, street dance, trampoline, golf, badminton and sport leadership courses. Participation rates amongst our Year 10 pupils are now consistently approaching 100%. It is our belief that this improved engagement in curricular PE, coupled with a boost to numbers attending out of school hours clubs, will only serve to better performance at GCSE with an improvement of self-esteem and confidence, and therefore engagement and motivation in other aspects of the curriculum. Ofsted, on their most recent inspection, rated All Hallows ‘Outstanding’. As a school, we are constantly seeking different or new ways to help every pupil reach their potential, challenging ourselves to improve, with the courage to take risks and make difficult decisions. The parallels in sport are obvious. David Brailsford, British Cycling’s Performance Director knows that simply repeating the programme that proved so successful in Beijing will not bring success in London 2012. Similarly, starting from scratch would erode all the fantastic work to date. The Salford North School Sport Partnership has made outstanding progress in such a (relatively) short period of time, but now the challenge really begins. To build from nothing is comparatively easy. To build on success is much harder. As a school, we will work with the partnership to build on the success to date, challenging and supporting in equal measure. The reward if the path followed is wise will not be measured in GCSE’s or Gold medals, but in a legacy of life-long participation in sport of the young people of Salford. I can think of no better aspiration. Monica Owens, Head teacher at All Hallows RC Business and Enterprise College

summed up how young people’s skills and confidence can develop in sport. One primary teacher said, ”I can’t believe they left us only a year ago. They have grown up so much!” We have also had national recognition within the Partnership. Wentworth All Stars were champions at the UK Cheerleading Association schools competition, Moorside High’s volleyball team reached the national finals and the Year 6 Kwik Cricket team from St Andrew’s Boothstown enjoyed a day at Grace Road, Leicestershire’s County Ground, having won through 3 heats. To provide more opportunities for children and young people to participate in Physical Education and sport within school and the local community, partnership working will play an even greater role in the future. This includes both PDMs putting up a combined front, especially when meeting high profile figures such as Scruffy the Squirrel (and Sir Alex!).

Here we illustrate ‘The Five Hour Offer’ through Jack and Jessica’s stories. Jessica is in Year 2. She receives 2 hours curriculum PE a week but doesn’t access any clubs at school. Her additional 3 hours are made up of community activities. A School - Club link with the local Gymnastics Club directs pupils to the weekly hour long session. Jessica enjoys this immensely and takes part in occasional weekend competitions. As an essential life skill, Jessica has attended swimming lessons since the age of 3. Her swimming teacher now concentrates on developing her stoke technique. When Jessica goes swimming in Year 3 at school she will be able to develop her swimming further to include basic survival skills. Jessica’s fifth hour every week has no school connection. Each Saturday morning she relishes her ballet lessons and enjoys performing routines in front of her siblings. As Jessica grows up the activities she chooses to be involved in may change, but through a combination of home, school and community she is likely to remain a ‘five hour’ child. Sporting Hero – Beth Tweddle.

SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SHE IS LIKELY TO REMAIN A ‘FIVE HOUR’ CHILD.”

On a TUESDAY Jack takes part in ‘Morning Move It’ before school. He goes cycling in the after school club around the school grounds and the local area. On a WEDNESDAY Jack goes canoeing at Salford Quays with Oakwood Youth Club. He then goes to the open session with his dad and sister straight after the club session. This is in addition to his PE lesson. On a THURSDAY in the winter Jack goes rock climbing at Salford Quays and in the summer he goes sailing. On a FRIDAY Jack does indoor and outdoor rowing depending on the weather with Oakwood Youth Club. On a SATURDAY Jack goes canoeing at Pennington Flash with Oakwood Youth Club and sometimes he goes out canoeing on trips which last most of the afternoon. On a SUNDAY Jack rests and get ready for the next week! In an average week, Jack spends ten to twelve hours involved in school and community sport. This is as a result of grasping and embracing all the opportunities presented to him,

THE HIGH QUALITY PE AWARD – WINNERS: All Souls’ RC Primary School The status of PE has risen in All Souls’ over the last few years since the introduction of PPA as the PLT has designed a curriculum to promote inclusive learning for all ages. The PLT plans and delivers subject specialist lessons to children from Foundation Stage through to Key Stage 2, The PLT identified baseline levels for PE and condensed individual teacher plans and assessments to implement the new whole school PE programme, measuring differences and identifying strengths and areas to improve on. The PLT set specific objectives for the next academic year recognising strategies that would work for her and looking towards success for all. The PLT demonstrates a flexible yet structured approach to PE, offering a range of activities where all children feel that they can succeed. All children are enthusiastic during PE lessons and are eager to transfer their skills to other lessons or other times of the school day. For example, each class has a customised activity bag and the children create their own games showing cooperation and a willingness to try new things. Children understand the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle; take part in a range of

The PLT ensures that the members of staff understand how PE is implemented through professional dialogue and good working relationships. The PLT monitors and evaluates pupils, planning and the quality of the lesson outcomes alongside rewarding and celebrating pupil’s achievements. There are assembly opportunities to reward individuals, groups or whole class achievements in PE and school sport. Children also show a desire to improve and achieve showing stamina and strength to keep going and are determined to spend extra time practising.

is fantastic to see all the pupils working in harmony together. THE DEVELOPING YOUNG PEOPLE AWARD – WINNERS: Oakwood High School The schools spirit of innovation and creativity ensures all young people at Oakwood are exposed to opportunities, which allow physical, social and emotional development to flourish. This is reflective in the opportunities pupils are exposed to within the curriculum and through the context of friendly competition. Pupils are challenged through competition against both mainstream and other MLD schools, which allows pupils to interact socially with their mainstream peers. The PE department at Oakwood have revised the schools existing PE curriculum with the aim of creating opportunities that not only raise attainment and achievement, but also create opportunities for creative and personalised learning through a range of new and exciting experiences. Each activity has been carefully considered when planning to ensure it is fully accessible to each individual. 17


PLAYGROUND LEADERS PROGRAMME MAKES A POSITIVE IMPACT. WE ARE HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THE INTRODUCTION OF THE PLAYGROUND LEADER’S PROGRAMME OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS HAS BEEN A MAJOR SUCCESS, WITH 868 YEAR 4, 5 AND 6 CHILDREN LEADING SAFE, FUN AND HEALTHY PLAYGROUND GAMES FOR INFANT CHILDREN AT PLAYTIMES AND LUNCHTIMES THROUGHOUT SCHOOLS IN THE SALFORD NORTH SCHOOL SPORT PARTNERSHIP. One major factor in this success has been the way in which the young leaders have adapted traditional and new games to suit the needs of the younger children in their school. For example, many leaders have chosen to design their own games to suit the equipment and space they have to work with. Whilst some schools have also adopted a “Captain” system, with one leader being offered an opportunity to be promoted in a role that allows them to manage the system themselves,

18

One very successful school has been St Philip’s C.E., whose leaders are very enthusiastic about the positive impact that their new Playground Leader’s programme has had on the life of the school. Shaun, in Year 5 said “I like looking after the little kids – if anyone is sad I can make them happy,” whilst Abbie, Sophie, Kayleigh and Lailla added “It’s brilliant to be able to help the children to improve their skills and to show them how to behave better.” In addition to this, schools are now able to make good use of playground resource packs provided by the Partnership and Youth Sport Trust and these are also being very well received by the leaders, who are looking forward to improving the quality of their already excellent service. So keep it up playground leaders! You are doing a fantastic job and the whole of Salford is benefiting from the wonderful work you are doing by keeping children healthy and active at lunchtimes.

The organisation is one of the key delivery partners for both School Sport Partnerships and there are many examples of successful joint working initiatives which demonstrate the commitment to achieving mutual objectives, providing high quality opportunities for young people and increasing participation in sport and physical activity. The majority of partnership working, contributing to the delivery of ‘5 hour offer’ in a number of ways, is lead by the Schools Team within Sport, Health and Community Leisure. Examples include; PLANNING, PREPARATION AND ASSESSMENT TIME (PPA) – SCL offer a package of curriculum time coaching to assist schools to facilitate this workforce legislation. The package provides children with a wide range of specialist coaching whilst also contributing to whole school improvement, by providing valuable skills for young people as well as enabling class teachers access to vital Planning, Preparation and Assessment time. The programme is fully supported by the School Sport Partnerships who recommend SCL as the preferred provider of this service for schools within the city. SPORT ACTIVITY MENU (SAM) CLUBS – To support and enhance the curriculum delivery, SCL also deliver SAM clubs at lunch time and after school sessions throughout the year. These clubs target young people who may not currently engage in physical activity outside of the curriculum by offering alternative activities such as circus skills and fun fitness sessions. In the last two years 3,105 youngsters have taken part in a SAM Club. SPORT UNLIMITED, NOT FOR BOYS PROGRAMME – SCL Schools Team also currently deliver the Not for Boys S

In the future we will continue to explore new initiatives and partnership working opportunities, maximising the potential of available funding where possible, to increase participation and provide young people with a quality experience in sport and physical activity. We will have a particular focus on contributing to the ‘5-hour offer’ through the Sport Unlimited programme and in linking competitive opportunities to continued development, as well as establishing exit routes into clubs and quality community recreational settings.

‘Something to Chew On’ takes a rounded approach to teaching children about healthy lifestyles. The topics covered include diet and health, food safety, consumer awareness and food preparation. As well as the classroom sessions, the programme aims to motivate children to be active. Practical sessions cover football, fitness and controlling body movement. Ten schools in the Partnership are part of the pilot, and United’s goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar popped in to one of them to see what the pupils were up to: The Daily Telegraph’s Henry Winter recorded the visit. ‘Addressing a Salford classroom, the Dutchman asked what the healthiest fish to have for lunch was.”Fish fingers,'' came one earnest reply. There is work to be done. For two hours, Van der Sar encouraged the pupils of Friars School, a well-run, friendly establishment, to think more deeply about fish, eschewing the frozen food variety and particularly the school goldfish nervously doing laps in a nearby bowl. "You're not going to eat that!'' the champions' keeper laughed. Soon, the children were talking about salmon and tuna, and listening intently as Van der Sar enthused about the salads, Dover sole and broccoli that make up the diet of champions.’ "My kids are 10 and eight, so I know how it works,'' Van der Sar said."When I started at Ajax I was educated about healthy eating, and I try to do that to my children. It's important to eat as a family. The children eat with me and my wife and we all eat the same, meat, vegetables and salad, although the children don't eat the salad.''
