We work in partnership with our local primary schools, to promote a wide variety of sporting activities, and to support with competitions between primary schools. Our Junior Sports Leaders volunteer to design, lead and supervise such occasions, alongside primary staff and Pete Buckby who coordinates the whole enterprise. Most of the activities take place after school, often on the grounds at Outwood Academy Bydales, where we have the space and equipment to help out. Our students learn a great deal about themselves, and develop their teamwork and leadership skills working with young children from Year 6 down to Year 2. There is much more to being a Sports Leader than the cherished purple hoodie!
We support both festival events and sporting competitions. At festival events, there is no progression to additional rounds. However, at competitions teams or individuals can progress to the next round, which is the Cleveland Sports Partnership and then, if successful, onto the Teesside Games.
We use the following terminology with regard to Sporting achievement within the Tees Valley.
Level One = Marske and New Marske Cluster event
Level Two = Cleveland Partnership event.
Level Three = Teesside Games.
Children in Year 3 through to Year 6 have the opportunity to progress in this way.
