Be the Best you can Be

 

Olympic Values - Parental Guidance

Please click HERE to see our Olympic Values Parental Guidance leaflet.

  

This programme was started at both Belle Vue and Newport schools in September 2012.  We had a very exciting launch with a visit by the Paralympic Gold Medallist Talan Skeels-Piggins who spent a day in both schools and was an inspiration to children, parents and staff.

The aim of the programme is to raise aspirations of all pupils with the support and engagement of their families and the wider community.

Pupils are equipped with the language of aspiration and success so that they are able to identify future targets and goals. They will acquire and develop the skills and knowledge to make important life and career choices.

 

 

  

Olympic Values

Top class athletes try to live according to a set of beliefs and values that help them to “Be the Best they can Be”. The Olympic Values play a key part in the Be The Best programme as they shape future lives and influence the choices that we make.

 At both schools we celebrate pupil achievement linked to the Olympic Values. This raises self-esteem and helps pupils to develop aspirations for their future. Achievements can be in the arts, sport, academic areas or something completely different. If a pupil has worked hard to achieve a personal goal then we will celebrate it!

Olympic Medalist Duncan Goodhew gives certificates to 5 children who have demostrated the olympic values of friendship, respect and determination. All children had an opportunity to ask Duncan questions about his path to success and he explained that the key elements were his determination and never to be put off by failure.

The children loved handling Duncan's gold medal, which he achieved for 100m breast-stroke and thought his Olympic torch was very impressive. Year 2 children are really looking forward to their swimming lessons in the summer term and will be letting Duncan know of their swimming successes!

 

 

Respect and Friendship medal winners

  Medal winners for demonstrating respect and friendship at the end of the spring term were Taio Omidire, Sky Fuller, Lucy Wells, Lucie Robinson, Phoebe Williams and Caitlyn Jones!

 

 

Equality and Friendship medal winners

 

 

 

   Equality & Friendship Medal Winners  As part of the Be The Best project children have been focusing on the Olympic Value of Equality. Children celebrated their achievements in a special assembly and some were awarded medals and certificates for Equality and Friendship.

 

 

Determination and Excellence

 

 In the Autumn term the children made celebration cards and held a big card sale in the hall. They raised £80.00 and chose to spend the money on wet-play resources for each class.

 

Well done children for your enterprising ideas!

Inspirational Visitors 

 

 

Another excellent sportsman visiting both schools was Tozin Oke, the famous triple-jump gold medallist, speaking to children about the importance of  determination, courage and self-belief if they are to be successful. He demonstrated amazing medal-winning jumps across the school hall!

 

 

 

Children had their photographs taken with Tozin and raised money for Sports Relief  during the sponsored sports activities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parent Workshops 

Parent workshops have been held this year for all year groups and were well attended. Following a presentation on the Olympic Values

 by Jan Boyton, Deputy Head, parents were invited into class to engage in an activity with their child and share their dream books.
