Secretary of Education, Nicky Morgan, visits Goldbeaters

We had an exciting start to the term with a visit from Nicky Morgan. We have been piloting the new Premiership initiative, On The Front Foot, which is a programme based around building on the 5 Premiership core values; Respect, Enjoyment, Teamwork, Discipline & Sportsmanship to improve character. The children had a great day chatting to her and rugby stars and are a wonderful asset to our school.

Goldbeaters' children meet our VIP Mike Diaper

On Tuesday 23rd June  we had a very special visitor.

Mike Diaper OBE, Director of Community Sport at Sport England, came
to Goldbeaters to meet staff and pupils and to share in our practise following
our AfPE with distinction award.

He met our sports council and saw numerous PE lessons at Goldbeaters and our federated school Orion from Reception gymnastics to Year 6 Cricket.

Mike is a warm, passionate, caring man who has done so much amazing work for school sport over the last 10 years, hence the OBE, and is a real credit to Sport England. The children loved meeting him and he had a truly lovely way with them - clearly interested in what they had to say.

One child,asked what his favourite sport was. Mike replied telling him it was rugby.
He also like tennis but wasn't very good so he offered to teach him! Another, year 4, wanted to know if dodgeball would become an Olympic sport and is clearly focused on the up and coming tournament! Other topics included the legacy of the Olympics, getting girls into sport (This Girl Can) and what he liked best about his job (he said meeting kids of course!)

Mike was also able to look at the new playground plan, partly funded from through a Sport England grant and we confirmed the process was simple and well supported.

He had to leave us after lunch as he had a meeting with the Education Minister!
