1 in 10 children starting primary school are obese, rising to 1 in 4 at secondary school. Decreases in school PE time and access to playing fields mean only 16% of children play sport, the majority, preferring to spend on average more than 6 hours a day in front of a screen.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORT OFFER
Curriculum PE Enrichment
Community Golf Activators deliver structured session plans, to include developing fundamental movement skills like agility, balance and co-ordination. We are able to work with your school to create a package covering a variety of key curriculum target areas suited to your needs. Community Golf works to support your school, curriculum and uphold school values, ethos and standards. Our distinctive model will ensure all participants enjoy school sport in a safe and fun environment, giving them equal opportunity to achieve.
Community Golf offers extended breakfast, after school golf clubs and/or lunchtime sessions, which can help to improve classroom behaviour and stimulate academic performance. We use the etiquette of golf as the ‘vehicle’ to develop the participant in terms of social skills, behaviour, attitude, respect and emotional wellbeing. Participants will have lots of fun with friends, playing a sport they perhaps would not have otherwise had the opportunity to try before.
We recognise the value that competitive sport can bring to your pupils, so we offer an opportunity for them to compete in our Autumn/Spring/Summer leagues alongside other educational and community sites. This is done through a weekly scoring system where league prizes and trophies for the best individuals and teams are presented. Open days can also be arranged, offering students the opportunity to visit a nearby golf facility to experience playing, enhancing their knowledge and widening their involvement in the game of golf.
All Community Golf Activators hold a current DBS and Safeguarding Certificate, are trained as Community Golf Level 1 and 2 Activators internally. They are also trained externally on a variety of disability elements and are encouraged to enhance their knowledge as additional training opportunities arise. They are suitably qualified and have the skills to deliver fun and engaging sessions, whilst maintaining a safe environment for the participants involved.
We offer taster sessions at a convenient time to suit both parties, to enable you to discover what we do and understand why other schools and community groups in your area are already participating in our leagues.
Community Golf appreciate that tight school budgets can cause barriers, but Primary Schools can make use of their Sport Premium Funding available, where session packages are tailored to the meet each individual Schools’ requirements. Based on needs and circumstances, we work actively on behalf of Secondary Schools Educational centres and Community sites to access available funding for sessions we provide. Please contact us to discuss the potential level of funding that could be available to you.
