POINTS Learning Network

Brook House is part of the POINTS School Sport Partnership which is an organisation that is made up of families of schools based around several secondary schools across the city. They support and develop PE and sports within our school giving pupils and staff many opportunities to ensure the high delivery of PE lessons, and increased opportunities to take part in school sport and out of hours learning.

Our partnership with POINTS is assisted by Ian Spooner (Development Manager) and Helen Stevens (Network Coordinator). Organising our competitions locally (and doing a superb a job of it) are Dave Milmns and Andy Staley.

Swimming at Brook House

As part of our Year 4 curriculum, all children are given the opportunity to learn to swim. We take the children to Westfield Swimming Pool where they receive 12 one hour swimming sessions. We aim for all pupils leaving our school to be able to swim at least 25m.

Playground Leaders Project

As part of our Sports Premium we run a Sports Leadership programme with our Y5 pupils which introduces and develops leadership skills children by training them to be able to organise and assist activities and games for other children in the playground.

One of the aims of this project is to increase the amount of physical activities undertaken during playtime and to make the playground a happy, fun environment for all children. This project also raises the self-esteem and self-confidence of its leaders.

Our sports leaders are given the job of delivering fun, sports activities during Lunch time. Through this role, they are given an opportunity to develop a sense of responsibility, enhance confidence and self-esteem, improve people management skills and, on top of this, develop some peer mentoring skills.

Let's meet our fabulous Y5 young leaders...
