SPORTING champions Duncton CE Junior say it is usually difficult for them to join competitions as a small rural school but the Active Sussex Striver Challenge gave them the chance to compete on equal terms.
“The range of activities helped us develop fundamental movement skills too. Thanks for getting us involved, Striver!” says Paul Garnham, Deputy Head at Duncton CE school in Petworth. Read more RIMARY PE RESOURCES
Striving for a better future for our children?
We work with Head teachers, PE co-ordinators, teachers and coaches in primary schools who want to create a positive and lifelong impact on the health and fitness of their children. Striver goes beyond sport skills to encourage the development of key life skills such as Growth Mindset, leadership and teamwork.
Developing a Growth Mindset
Striver is a fantastic vehicle to teach children character and life lessons within in a safe environment, and by its very nature promotes the development of a ‘growth mind-set’ in pupils.
As Striver encourages and rewards effort rather than attainment, any natural ability that pupils might have is seen as just the starting point for development. It is the effort they apply to the improvement of their skills and fitness that will earn them ultimate success and their Striver medals.
Striver ticks all the boxes!
The kids are constantly setting themselves new targets after being inspired by the terrific instructional videos and then get instant feedback as targets are achieved!
The kids love the programme and you know it is good when they come up every day asking when they are going to do Striver again.
Stephen Feeney, PE Teacher of the Year 2014. Brighton and Hove
Striver fits brilliantly
with our school focus of raising children’s levels of fitness.
And it has been really successful with the children taking responsibility as Striver Captains.
Rachel Holland, Head Teacher
Striver is so easy to set up
and very quick to complete the challenges. It’s a great way of keeping all children active, whilst allowing them to develop the skills being taught in lessons.
It’s great for inter and intra-school competition and sports leadership within the school.
A PE teacher’s dream!
Johnny Buggy, PE teacher.
Striver always gets my class buzzing
to start PE! The kids learn skills and it focusses on who’s best improved, rather than who’s best – it’s really bought PE to life!
Amy Snelling, Class 5 teacher
Chesswood Junior School in Sussex were the overall winners in our Active Sussex Striver Challenge last term.
“Striver fits nicely with the new national curriculum. The virtual competitions against other schools is really good because the pupils like to see if they’ve beaten other year groups and schools.
The instruction videos are brilliant too. It’s really helpful seeing both adults and children doing the activity.”
