Wild Wednesday – Some high tempo competitive activities involving personal challenges
Thinking Thursday – Introducing cognitive challenges for children through movement. Active noughts and crosses and introducing an element of competition – whether that be against themselves, the clock, their siblings or remotely with friends
Fun Friday – A chance for children to let loose and have some fun. Dancing and doing what makes them feel good.
We’ve teamed up with DC to create Wonder Woman-inspired resources for schools and families. Filled with awesome ideas and anchored in the recovery curriculum (Carpenter, B. and Carpenter, M., 2020), the fun free activities will help your young people develop skills such as courage, strength and teamwork using the power of sport.
The multi-level activity cards give a huge variety of options for group or individual work with quest cards to monitor progress.
Steps to Success - 2020/21
Pathway to Podium 2022
What is Pathway to Podium?
The Pathway to Podium initiative has been designed to recognise and encourage schools' contribution to Physical Education, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA). It celebrates the positive work that schools are delivering in terms of PESSPA and supports schools to improve their offer for the benefit of children and young people.
Pathway to Podium is available for all schools across Birmingham and is designed to use the 2022 Commonwealth Games as a tool to increase the opportunities for young people to be active for a minimum of 60 minutes every day.
How does Pathway to Podium work?
Pathway to Podium will provide a set of criteria across 5 key areas of PROFILE, PARTICIPATION, PERFORMANCE, PEOPLE and PLACES.
Schools will complete an initial self-assessment on each of the 5 key areas and receive a rating (bronze, silver or gold) based on their responses. Schools will need to evidence key strategies they have implemented, the impact this has had on the outcomes and progress for young people and their plans for future development.
Schools will be supported to develop an action plan that enhances their school offer in PESSPA and improves the outcomes for young people. Schools will be encouraged to re-assess on a yearly basis to evidence improvements and prioritise further developments.
