Five years ago, we decided all children in KS1 and KS2 should study a structured, formal gymnastic programme so that over time, all children become skilled gymnasts. To deliver the programme, the school has two British Gymnastics Association Coaches, Jade Sheeley and Kath Donlan, who are teaching the children the Core Gymnastics Proficiency Awards. These awards start at Level 8 and progress to Level 1. To get to Level 1 (which is very difficult) children have to pass each level.
The school has always been incredibly successful in Gymnastics, competing in the West of England finals several years on the trot.
A bit about our gym coaches….
Jade took part in competitive gymnastics from the age of 4-13 and was ranked 5th in the South West. She regularly took part in local and regional competitions and has been using her expertise to coach our children to regional success.
