Another extremely busy year of
sporting activities and school
curriculum support is drawing to
a close.
The number of pupil entries in
competitions, or festivals this
year has risen to an impressive
4860 and 100% of schools in the
School Sports Programme are
now taking part in regular competitive
opportunities. The
standard and quality of performances
at this years events has
continued to be very high and
the Blyth & Bedlington region
had another excellent showing
at the Northumberland School
Games Finals, medalling in 9 out
of the 20 competitions. Well
done to all concerned.

400 leadership opportunities
to help run and officiate
at these events have been
created for KS3,4 & 5 students,
and 40 students went
on to officiate at the Northumberland
School Games
level 3 finals held at Cramlington
on June 22nd.

Once again, over 500 hours
of extra-curricular coaching
has been delivered in lunch
time or after school clubs.

Specific CPD events have
seen 18 staff attend an Early
Years 'Ready to Write
'course, which will be followed
up in the autumn
term with a Yoga course.

On top of this 20 schools accessed
the FA/Tesco soccer
skills programme which saw a
further 40 staff receive in
school football CPD along
with an online qualification.

21 schools have signed into
the School Sport Programme
for another year and planning
for the academic year 2017-
18 is well underway and we
look forward to working with
you all for another year.

We thank you for your continued
support and wish you all
a great summer holiday.
