Primary Leaders Training Academy (26.09.16)

12 Year 5 children were taken to a training day where they were learning about how to be primary leaders at Preston. The children learnt a mixture of different things, including, what makes a good leader, ways to get children active in school, how to arrange level 1 (within school) competitions and strategies for team building. The children had a really good day and came back to school with a number of things to do.

After their first meeting as primary leaders, it was agreed that the children would be separated into three groups: Jake Johns, Dawson Clarke, Lacie Garthwaite and Millie Beddard, Ryan Ogden, Willian Blyth, Louis Smith and Sophie Howmans and Kaden Garthwaite, Oliver Simpson, Phoebe Atkinson and Gracie Worton. Each group will take it in turns to be a playground leader, sports crew and change4life club (get active).

Playground Leader- Children will take it in turns to come up with games and activities for groups of children in the playground.

Sports Crew- Children will arrange level one games within school time for the different year groups.

Change4Life (Get Active) – Children will come up with different ways to get children, who don’t particularly like sport, involved in school games.

After Monday 10th October, the children will have come up with their first plans as Primary Leaders.

Your kind words

“A lovely school with a good atmosphere for learning and having fun”
We are so proud of the progress our son has made in Year 1.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have helped my daughter this year.
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time as a Year 4 student.
It’s nice to have an informative school report that concentrates on the positives of my child’s learning.
Keep up the good work, without confidence it’s hard for a child to grow.
You were both very understanding and I really do appreciate this. Thank you so much.
You all do fantastic jobs and I appreciate this.
Not only has he progressed academically, he has also gained more confidence and I would like to thank Mr Clift for playing an instrumental part in this.
Many thanks to all the staff at Preston, it is you who make us parents feel our children are happy and safe.
She has really enjoyed Year 3. We are really pleased with the progress she has made in many subjects – especially in maths.
I just wanted to say “well done” for this year’s year 6 sats results! They were amazing and I know that it would have taken sheer hard work from the children and teachers to enable your pupils to achieve with the unrealistic expectations set the Gove & Morgan camp.
Thank you for the report it was a pleasure to read and we greatly appreciate all that you done for her this year.
