Assessment Procedures

  • We look back at previous years and compare numbers of student involvement in weekend sports.

  • We look back at previous years and compare number of sports and health initiatives opportunities have been taken.

  • We look back at the number of children attending breakfast club.

Trend Analysis

  • The results show that this year we have been very much involved with anything and everything that has been available to us in our area. More parents are offering their support for coaching and breakfast club. More kids are getting involved in sports throughout the seasons.

Students and Groups of Students at risk

  • Those kids who are not attending breakfast club regularly.

  • Kids who live out of town and can’t make it to practices or games after school hours.

Teaching and learning strategies to address the above

  • Regular promotion of breakfast club. Getting kids inside early before school is something that has to be actioned.

  • Getting in touch with parents of the kids who are keen but can’t come into town and working out places for them to stay on these nights.

Looking Ahead

  • We will continue to get coaches in from Sport Northland to promote Physical education.  A push will be given towards the teaching of Physical Education in our school and getting teachers on Board.  

  • The bikes and track need to be developed more and become a regular part of Physical activity for our students. Gear needs to be looked after better. Breakfast club needs to be promoted more. Milk folding needs to be done properly.. Get more teachers involved in taking sports at lunchtimes and after school.
