Create Supports School Games Organisers
Create Development recently delivered training for Surrey School Games Organisers, to support them aligning the School Games to schools needs and the new Ofsted framework, with the aim of supporting the SGOs to better influence head teachers and school leaders to sign up for the School Games.
”The day was really useful and has given me confidence to talk with more knowledge to my head teachers” Sam Ward, SGO, Surrey – North West
The training saw the SGO’s undertake 3 key challenges:
- Identifying what healthy competition and the Schools Games offer schools
- Investigating the proposed new National Curriculum and Ofsted Framework
- Align healthy competition and the School Games to Ofsted and schools needs
A major part of the day was spent with the SGO’s dissecting the Outstanding Ofsted judgements and additional supplementary judgements for PE to identify where the School Games can directly impact and provide support to schools.
The end result was a matrix of Ofsted judgements and possible areas where healthy competition and the School Games can support and provide a context for schools.
The final part of the day was a challenge for the team to come up with their ‘Golden Circle’ of ‘why’ healthy competition and the School Games are essential for schools and young people and ‘how’ it achieves it. The next step in the training will be persuasive presentations to better support them to influence head teachers!
‘Great Day. Excellent use of time…A bespoke training day that really hit the mark!.’ Wendy Newton, Youth Sport Development Manager, Surrey.
