National School Sports Award for PE and Swim Team
We are very pleased to share with you all that Treloar’s PE and Swim Team was successful in winning the National School Sports Award at the Education Business Awards 2023.
The National School Sports Award is awarded to the educational establishment in the UK that can demonstrate an outstanding commitment to developing the sporting skills of its students through the provision of first-class facilities and coaching programmes.
This was presented at the Leonardo Royal Hotel, St Pauls, London. Freya Chart, Treloar’s PE and Swim Teacher, commented:
I am so honoured to receive this award on behalf of my amazing students, dedicated PE and Swim Team and the wider community of Treloar’s who have bought into the PE vision for School. In everything we do we try to give our students the confidence to have a ‘can do’ attitude and belief that they can achieve much through PE, sport and swimming. We are so proud of all our students: from those who have been accepted into the Boccia UK Talent Transition Squad and work closely with Boccia UK and to those who enjoy PE, give everything a go, give us Wow moments every day as they develop their basic and fundamental movement skills or water confidence in the pool.
I have been teaching for 30 years mostly in secondary and sixth form education but since my start at Treloar’s I have had to think outside every PE box I have ever worked in, adapting equipment and games to make PE and swimming inclusive for every single student. This would not be possible without the help of our multidisciplinary teams. PE and swimming at Treloar’s have such a positive vibe, and we can see the wellbeing benefits shine through and skills transfer across curriculum areas. Our Paralympian ambassadors share our passion as do those schools and organisations who come in to share with us the amazing benefits that sport and PE have to offer everyone.”
Education Business awards said in their commendation: “Treloar’s goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure that the disabilities of its pupils do not prevent participation in a wide range of sports. By hosting an annual Disability Sports competition mainstream school students can see how adaptations can be made to enable all to achieve in activities that they share an equal love for.”
