Gold Award Press Release

Gold School Games Mark

We are incredibly proud to share that Swallowdale has achieved the Gold School Games Mark for last academic year due to the hard work of pupils and staff. The esteemed award was presented to us during an assembly so we can share it with pride!

We’ve put together ten video challenges for children who are at home, to help them stay active with their families.
The videos are up on our Facebook page:
I have attached a spreadsheet on which children can record their scores if they wish.

I wanted to get in touch as we at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust have developed a self-care kit for primary school aged children which is aimed at looking after their emotional health and wellbeing during this time.

The kit covers lots of topics, including staying healthy, handling emotions, letting go of worries and staying connected, plus some fun things to do whilst at home. There are breathing exercises, advice on conversation starters, a postcard that can be filled in with a message to family member or friend they are missing and much more.

Looking After Yourself

Please find attached our resources related to the Sportshall Athletics Home Pentathlon which may be of use during this time.

 The Home Pentathlon is a fun way for families to take part in adapted Sportshall Athletics events within their home environment. We hope you find these resources helpful and would be delighted if you are able to promote the use of them.

Spring 1 Sports Clubs at Swallowdale

Year 1 and 2 Gymnastics

This half term, our Year 1 and 2 children have loved working with Jazz in gymnastics club. It’s been amazing to see their confidence grow and their enjoyment has really shone through. They have had the opportunity to extend their learning and practice a range of fundamental movement skills during these sessions.

Year 5 and 6 Dance

Our Year 5 and 6 dancers have been so committed to this club in the effort to prepare for the Melton Theatre SKY Dance Challenge this half term. Their hard work paid off as they were placed in the top two of the evening and in the top six overall out of the eighteen schools that took part. We are so proud of their dedication and enthusiasm. They produced an incredibly well polished performance and should be proud of themselves for all that they achieved.
