Primary School Sport Premium Funding

Joint Adventures is keen to support the development and access to outdoor adventure activities within the school curriculum.  To many the thought of going out in the cold and wet is horrible, but we encounter numerous people who are surprised by the enjoyment gained from being out in the surrounding hills and lakes despite the sometimes seemingly inclement weather.  

Amongst our aims is to help people to see beyond the waterproofs and wetsuits and be confident to access the outdoors for pleasure as well as learning.  We know that ultimately it won’t suit every child (or teacher) but we believe the experience of tasting what the outdoors has to offer is an opportunity too good to miss.

How can Outdoor Activities improve the quality of your PE Curriculum?

Outdoor Adventure Activities feature a strong ethos of development of skills on an individual level and in a non competitive environment.   Outdoor disciplines such as canoeing, rock climbing and hill walking encourage development of physical fitness and a range of motor skills all of which is transferable to other activities.   

Joint Adventures offer to support Physical Education in Primary Schools is:
Joint Adventures aims to form a partnership with schools so that they can access outdoor activities as part of the PE curriculum and take part in regular outdoor activity sessions.  Through provision of activities for children Joint adventures will also, where appropriate, work with staff to increase their experience of working with young people outdoors.  Although many of the outdoor activities require specialist training and skills, there are also many aspects of outdoor activities which require experience and application of knowledge rather than technical expertise. Joint Adventures staff will support teachers in working to increase their own experience of working with children in the outdoors.

CPD
Where appropriate Joint Adventures can provide training and experience days for staff wishing to gain qualifications and skills which they may use independently with their students.  Various national governing bodies and organizations such as The Institute for Outdoor Learning run CPD courses specifically for teachers who are not outdoor practitioners.

Resources
Joint Adventures is licensed by AALS and has experience in working with school groups and has a good range of high quality equipment and clothing which can be used by school groups.  Our instructors come with commitment to making outdoor experiences exciting, safe and enjoyable.   Through national governing bodies and organizations which we work with, Joint Adventures will aim to support a sustained participation in outdoor sports.  

Exit Routes
There are many ways by which teachers and students may sustain their interest and participation in outdoor activities.  As participants gain in confidence and skill they will move towards becoming independent learners.  Clubs and organizations and societies are generally inclusive and open to all who have the confidence and desire to walk through the door.

Direct Support
Whilst delivering outdoor activities to students Joint Adventures will also aim to develop the experience of staff.  We can guide teachers to routes which they might follow in order to gain professional qualifications in particular outdoor disciplines.

Local Offer:

Joint Adventures invites schools to get in contact to discuss developing a partnership.  We will always try to work within your funding budget and provide our services with sustainability in mind.
