Ball Green Primary School Sports Council has been set up to discuss the future of sport in school. Each of the children represents the school voice in all sporting decisions. Mrs Hancock said “we already have a school council who have a fantastic voice and make a real difference to everyday school life. It is my hope that the Sports Council will be just as successful. During the meetings we have held so far all of the children are brimming with enthusiasm and ideas and I am confident the pupils will continue to have a real voice in school sport.”
Our Sports Council
The sports council consists of 10 pupils made up of 1 child from each year group from year 2 to year 6. From time to time the sports council invites a special guest to join us during our half termly meetings. This is when the children’s ideas flow and make a difference in their school sport lives. This ensures sport is seen as inclusive and accessible to all members of the school.
The children all nominated by their classes for a position on the council to represent the school voice in all sporting decisions. These councillors work with Mrs Hancock to improve the quality and selection of sports that the school teach or participate in. They take opinions from their classmates and feedback information which helps to inform decision and create a sporting ethos.
Our Sports Council have 4 main aims:
1. We believe that athletes come in all shapes and sizes. Let talent and abilities shine through.

A ‘Sports Hero’ is someone who has shone brightly at sports and has gone that extra mile to achieve their goal” . Each week during Success assembly a sports personality is chosen from each class.
