The main focus of the Platinum Team is to help our children achieve their full potential in sport and also encourage them to make good lifestyle choices. The Platinum Team was developed after a series of fitness tests were carried out in school on all Key Stage 2 pupils. These tests looked to measure the children’s speed, power, strength, muscular endurance and flexibility. The selected children all achieved excellent scores for the different fitness tests in comparison with the national average for their age group.

 

Our Platinum Team are given a booklet to work through with their parents and Mr. Weatherill that includes work on: healthy eating, training programmes, recommended physical activity guidelines and psychology of performance.
