Banbury Academy Inclusion Day 1

On Thursday 19th November, thirty eight children from the Banbury Academy family of primary schools took part in the first of three inclusion days.  The aim of the inclusion days is to develop children’s self-confidence and self-belief through taking on new challenges.

The children, from Dashwood, Harriers, The Grange, Queensway and St. Leonard’s, took part in lots of different activities throughout the day with an emphasis on engagement and enjoyment.  The activities included: a jump session on the trampettes; archery; photo orienteering; bench ball; parachute games; trampolining and cooking healthy pizzas.  Staff commented that “the children gained lots of confidence through taking part in different activities” and that “the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and participated in every event.

The children had a great day – “love it, love it, love it!”, “this is the best day ever!”  Their participation was celebrated at the end of the day with everyone receiving a certificate.  Some of the children also received special self-belief certificates for being especially brave when taking on new challenges.

The day ran extremely smoothly and this was largely down to the 12 Banbury Academy Young Leaders who did a fantastic job of ensuring that every child was fully included and enjoying themselves.  “The leaders were very welcoming and encouraging to the students.” (Teaching assistant Dashwood)
