Tuesday 5th April – Bishop’s Waltham Junior School becomes part of the ‘Get Set Network’

Filed under: PE,Whole School @ 4:11 pm

At the London 2012 Olympics, the 7 Olympic and Paralympic values will be paramount in ensuring a successful and exciting Olympic Games.  As a school, we are lucky to follow similar values and each week, somebody from each class is recognised by their teacher for showing a particular value really well.

Due to this, we felt it was important as a school to be recognised for our commitment to these values and we set about applying to become a ‘Get Set’ School and therefore become part of a network of schools recognised by the London Olympic Committee as upholding the 7 Olympic and Paralympic Values.

To become a ‘Get Set’ School, there were some questions we had to answer on an application form, based on the work we had already been doing to show a commitment to the Values and why we deserved to be recognised as a school which upholds these Values.  We then had to put together an action plan to show how we would carry on our commitment to these values over the coming year, leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

A couple of weeks ago, it was confirmed that our application had been successful and we were the 7th school in Hampshire to become a member of the ‘Get Set’ network.  We received a plaque, which is displayed in Reception, a certificate and we have earned the right to use the Olympic and Paralympic logo on our school website and letterheads.  As well as this, we are able to apply for tickets and get free Olympic resources to use in our school.

Well done to everyone at our school, because without your participation, our hard work would not have been recognised.
