Westfield School Sporting Offer to our Family of Schools An overview with how Westfield fit into the School Games structure and the Points Learning Network.
Key Roles at Westfield School Ian Spooner School Games Organiser, Points Learning Network Manager Most of you are probably aware of who Ian is. Under the previous government we had School Sports Partnership and Ian was the manager of the Points Partnership. When the funding for the partnerships was withdrawn Ian remained involved with Westfield in the capacity of School Games Organiser. He has also kept our Partnership together via the now named Points Learning Network. Through the Network you are entitled to a whole host of services. Helen Stevens Consultant at Westfield, Points Learning Network Strategic Manager Many of you will also know Helen and she used to be the School Sports Co-Ordinator at Westfield under the old structure of School Sports Partnerships. Under the School Games Structure, Helen works with Westfield in a consultancy capacity but will mainly be involved with schools in her role with the Points Learning Network. She is very involved in helping schools with their spend and monitoring programme. David Millns Schools Competition Organiser,Specialist PE Teacher, for Points Learning Network I am now entering my 4 th year in the capacity of Schools Competition Organiser. This year will be slightly different to the previous 3 though in the sense that I will be working with KS1 and KS2 TWO days a week now. In the School Games Structure I was given a one day secondment with the remit of increasing Competitions, Festivals and Sporting Opportunities in and around our Community. I believe we have been relatively successful in doing so. I work with a team of selected students at Westfield (Sports Leaders) to provide a range of competitions and festivals to KS1 and KS2 students. Some of the competitions offered fit into the School Games structure allowing the wining schools to progress further in a national competition structure. My second day is working solely for the Points Learning Network delivering project work in schools as a Trained Specialist Physical Education Teacher. This ranges from staff CPD to student leadership training. 2 Andy Staley School Games Competition Manager Andy used to work in the Scholl Sports Partnership and is now back with the now named Points Learning Network in a new capacity this year. Andy has been charged with running the School Games Finals for the Network and corresponding with the other partnerships across the city. Andy may be in touch if your school make it through any Westfield School Games competitions or if you are interested in additional School Games entries. Richard Mills Schools Coach for Points Learning Network Richard is very well known and very well respected in the community. Just to clarify, Richard works mainly for the Points Learning Network as a coach now. Though he specialises in badminton, he has the ability to coach across a whole hosts of sports. He can coach in PE curriculum time and after school. He can be a useful resource in the build up to a Festival whether it be a Westfield event or in association with the School Games.
How it all Links Together You will keep seeing key terms and names of organisations. Here’s a run down about each one and how it all links together for your benefit. Points Learning Network Points Learning Network is a private organisation which many of you may have bought into. Schools buy into the network of schools and receive a Core Offer. The Core Offer can be made up of whatever you feel is needed on an educational front at your school. This may be coaches to deliver curriculum time, resources or CPD. Ian Spooner is the Manager or the Network but is also the area School Games Organiser. The biggest way in which the Network can link to what Westfield are doing and School Games is schools can use the Core Offer to get support for their students in preparation for Festivals and events. E.g. they may choose to enter a Badminton Festival, so why not use the Core Offer to get a Badminton Coach in to help in the preparation. The Westfield Offer Westfield strive to offer as much opportunity as possible for the family of schools to come and compete using the Westfield Facilities. The school also strive to develop Young Leaders and allow them to interact with primary age children to aid transition and build closer links within the community. To achieve these aims, each school is sent an offer of competition and festivals at the start of each year and entry information for each event as it approaches. I (David Millns) am responsible for making this offer to all schools. All each school within the family has to do is commit to taking part and enter where possible. The Westfield offer is made up of both community based events where enjoyment and participation are the driving forces and School Games events where whilst enjoyment is absolutely paramount, progressing to a further stage is possible. School Games School Games is a national initiative. It is a competition structure that allows progression from the earliest stage of local competition right through to National Championships. Many of what I (David Millns) organise through the Westfield Offer fits into the School Games structure. There may be other sports within the School Games that you are interested in but Westfield are not offering competitions in that field. It is my responsibility to help you enter any sport you wish. All each schools needs to do is register on the School Games Website and commit to the competitions they wish to enter. 3

Additions to the Role In addition to the Sporting Offer, I (David Millns) can help in other ways also. This is especially true now I work an extra day each week with the Points Learning Network. My service can now includes… Curriculum Support Whether it be in the build up to a festival/competition or in accordance with your scheme of work, the Sports Leaders and I can assist with your PE Lessons. Additional Competitions If you want to enter additional competitions whether they be part of the School Games Structure or otherwise, I can help. Additional Opportunities If additional opportunities arise that may benefit your students, I will aspire to make sure you receive the relevant information. In the past these opportunities have included Olympic workshops can Cricket in the Classroom. Change4Life The Sports Leaders are currently working with a committed school providing a Change4Life after School Club for disengaged children. So far the club has been a huge success. If you feel this is something we can help set up at your school, I can facilitate this. CPD Opportunities Similar to other educational opportunities arising for your students, if CPD opportunities arise that may benefit your staff, I will be send it through to the PE contact. Networking As mentioned on a previous page, The Points Learning Network, what we are offering at Westfield and the School Games can all intertwine. I can help explain things and help the systems link for your school upon request. 7
Success Stories We have had some huge success stories regarding the Sports Leaders who have since left Westfield. Many of them have referred to their time as a Sports Leader as a factor to why they achieved all they have. Though this doesn’t directly effect you, perhaps it may be beneficial for you to see how you are helping our students. Maybe these are your former students also. Elizabeth Sorsby Westfield Sports Leaders Elizabeth (or Bessie as she is affectionately known to her friends) was quite simply a phenomenal student. She achieved fantastic GCSE grades and was heavily involved in every aspect of the Sports Leadership Academy. She was selected to be part of the Sheffield Academy of Young Leaders and was also heavily involved with the Youth Sports Trust as a Young Ambassadors. Perhaps Bessie’s greatest achievement is that she has recently been selected from hundreds of applicants to be part of the National steering Group leading all new Young Ambassadors. Bessie is now studying A Levels at a high achieving 6 th form and plans to study at university. It is quite humbling to hear her say how much of her success stems from her involvement as a sports leader. Last year Bessie was also selected to carry the Queen’s Commonwealth Baton. Asha Mistry Westfield Sports Leaders Asha was arguably one of Westfield’s most successful ever students. She too was noted for her incredible organisation skills and through being in the Sports Leaders Academy she developed a whole host of skills. She was selected for the Sheffield Academy of Young Leaders and is still heavily involved. She has volunteered countless hours through this qualification and has worked closely with the Youth Sports Trust. Asha recently came second in the Youth Sports Trust Young Person of the Year Award. She is currently studying at Sheffield College and plans to extend her studies at University. Hayley Simpson Westfield Sports Leaders Hayley's story is quite remarkable. She was a fantastic leader at Westfield and was quickly selected to be part of the Sheffield Academy of Young Leaders. She flourished in her role as a leader and volunteered for countless hours across the city. Hayley was last year selected to be a Games Maker at London 2012 at the age of 18 and said without the skills she learnt through being part of the Westfield Leadership Academy, she would never have had that opportunity. Hayley currently studying to be a PE teacher at Sheffield Hallam University. 8 Iona Tatham Westfield Sports Leaders Iona is one is a million. As a leader she was so reliable and made a huge difference to the children in our community. She was part of the Points Leadership Academy and Volunteered at the UK School Games. However, what I find all the more remarkable about Iona is how she balances her leadership activities with her heavy academic schedule. Iona contributed an incredible amount to the Westfield Sports Leaders but also managed to achieve a wopping 12 A/A* Grades. Wow!
Here to Help Westfield wants to make our family of schools a strong family. We believe sport can be at the heart of this. Sport can build relationships, develop confidence early and aid transition. Ultimately we are here to help. If your school need any support on a sporting front, please never hesitate to contact me.
