MANCHESTER SCHOOL’S PE ASSOCIATION
PRIMARY VOLUNTEERING AWARD

 

DSC_0150Schools are encouraged to use this award to recognise and reward those pupils who assist with the organisation of PE and School Sport within your school.

There are three levels to the award:

• Gold – for volunteering 25+ times
• Silver – for volunteering 15+ times
• Bronze – for volunteering 10+ times

Master copies of all the certificates are available here:- Bronze ; Silver ; Gold . Each individual school will be able to set their own criteria on volunteering, but it is anticipated that award credits will not be given for menial tasks such as: holding or taking the register/carrying equipment etc.

Tasks should include: leading part of a warm-up or skills session; leading a lunchtime activity; officiating in a Level 1or 2 competition; helping at an after-school club/event etc.

Some pupils will easily achieve the Gold standard, whilst others may only achieve the Bronze during the academic year. However, it is anticipated that staff will allow the latter to achieve each level over a number of years if needed.

There will be three levels to the award:

• Gold – volunteer for involvement in 30 + competitions / events
• Silver – volunteer for involvement in 20 + competitions / events

Master copies of all the certificates are available here. Each school is able to add their own criteria on volunteering to the above, but it is anticipated that award credits will not be given for menial tasks such as: holding or taking the register/carrying equipment etc.

Some pupils will easily achieve the Gold standard, whilst others may only achieve the Bronze during the academic year. However, it is anticipated that staff will allow the latter to achieve each level over a number of years if needed.

For those students who achieve way above the Gold standard, there will be a Citywide Platinum Award, where the PE Association will supply a framed certificate.
