Sporting Success at Freebrough

During PE lessons, staff have been discussing with students the ‘Head, Heart and Hands’ assessment. Staff are encouraging students to think of how they learn in these three areas. Head is related to listening, understanding rules, showing safety, analysing and feeding back to others. Heart relates to how students show PRIDE, how they work with others and their attitude to winning and losing. Hands is the practical side of PE and how well students perform. In all areas students will be graded either Outstanding, Good or Requires Improvement.

The Sport and Health faculty would like to share with you a few of the students who have shown, throughout the term, Daring Greatly qualities:

  • Hannah Y10, is our Superstar Student of the term! Hannah has a positive attitude in Dance, PE and during enrichment sessions. She also has endless amounts of energy and smiles!
  • Eva Y7 and Millie Y7 have attended enrichment clubs and taken on the roles of captains for the Y7 netball teams.
  • Year 10 Dance group (Emmie, Megan, Hannah, Ellecia, Jodie, Lauren, Sophie and Zoe) have begun a joint dance project with KTS Academy focused around Tin arts and Urban Chaos dance. They are working towards a Tees Valley wide performance in March 2018.
  • A number of Y7 girls attended a netball festival where they played matches against other schools in the Redcar area showing an abundance of courage.
  • Currently Y7 boys are top of the football league in our local sports partnership.
  • Josh Y10 who is a wheelchair basketball player for the Titans and was nominated ‘Young Male Achiever’ at the North East Disability Sports Awards 2016, will be helping to deliver a Step into Sport Leadership Training Day for Y9 + students. The workshop will be attended by students from across the area and Josh will be working alongside Katy Storie, who is an English rugby union player. We are so proud that Josh will be there as the area’s local young role model, to help inspire other young people.
