Kirstie Smith said ‘This is a very special evening to celebrate the sporting achievements of our pupils from across our trust family of schools. I am immensely proud of this award evening, which is now in its second year and features even more award categories to reflect and recognise the sporting achievements and ambitions of our aspiring and elite athletes.
‘I firmly believe that outstanding Physical Education has a direct impact on whole school improvement through raising aspiration, and ultimately achievement, for our young people. Unlike any other subject in the curriculum, Physical Education has a unique role in promoting core life values; this is essential to develop our young people’s physical literacy, educating them on leading a healthy, active, lifestyle.’
During the evening Thomas Clarkson Academy’s dance students performed two routines and the BWT Sports Ambassadors assisted with duties, helping students and parents to find their seats and provided support to the awards organisation team. Thank you to all those involved who made the evening a great success.
