With the success and enthusiasm that was shown for the Macmillan coffee morning – I decided to make Sport Relief a competitive rematch between English and PE. Not long after this was published, it was then decided to go one bigger, as SLT fancied their chances. This demonstrated the enthusiasm of the staff throughout the Academy and again - allowed pupils to see ‘us’ in a different environment – building solid relationships.
...and the 1497 Mile Challenge
Moreover, the whole Academy took part in a 1497 mile challenge – meaning we all had to come together in order to complete. We have 1497 pupils and staff which only meant 1 mile per person. The total number completed in one week was: 1673 miles, the motto throughout the week was ‘WORKING TOGETHER WE WILL ACHIEVE SUCCESS'. This has shown everyone in the Academy that if we all do our bit we can be successful.
In the aftermath of Sport Relief, the pupils in The Link often go for a mile walk to gather their thoughts/calm down alongside staff members. This will help to educate these pupils that exercise can help with stress and in turn will help them to lead a healthy lifestyle.
