Gifted & Talented in Sports
The Physical Education department at Idsall School continually strive to develop pupil’s healthy lifestyles through curriculum lessons and extra-curricular provision. Through assessment procedures the staff monitor pupil progress in P.E regularly throughout the year and track pupil achievement during curriculum and school sport involvement. This enables us to celebrate the success of pupils when participating in session six clubs and in representing the school.
We are obviously aware that many of our pupils are involved in sport outside of school and with your support we are looking to update our Gifted and Talented register during this academic year. This will enable us to celebrate the sporting success our pupils achieve outside of school and will also give us the opportunity to nurture and support young athletes whilst in school. Through the identification of our Gifted and Talented students, the PE department can offer a mentoring system where pupils can liaise with staff about training and competition commitments and report on results and achievements. We will also be offering extra-curricular sessions purely for Gifted and Talented pupils throughout the year to offer advice and information on areas such as fitness, nutrition and injury management.
To collect the relevant information about our pupils, an information form can be downloaded below and either printed off and returned back to the PE department by your son/daughter or emailed back to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copies of this form can also be sent out to you by post or sent home with pupils if required.
The Gifted and Talented programme is aimed at pupils who are training or competing in sports at district, county, regional, national and international levels within their sport. The form must be returned/emailed back by Friday 19th October 2012 for your son/daughter to be considered for the Gifted and Talented register and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
Any queries should be directed to Mis Parry in the PE Dept.
