Please see below for previously sent full details about the award:

Students who are currently in Year 9 have the option next year (in Year 10) of participating in the Perins Sports Coaching Award in one of their core PE lessons.  

The Sports coaching course is delivered over the whole of Year 10.  Students on the course participate in sports coaching for 1 out of their 2 hours in core PE time.   

The start of the course is based at Perins where students learn how to deliver a successful coaching session relating to aspects such as communication, organisation and safety. As the course progresses students take greater ownership of their lessons, building into the summer term when they visit local primary schools and work with primary school children in a variety of sports and activities. 

The course is an excellent introduction to students interested in coaching sport and gives them an opportunity to plan, prepare and lead sports coaching sessions designed for younger children.  Students on the course benefit by taking increased responsibility within lessons, which will help to improve confidence and knowledge of sport. 

We are asking for voluntary contributions of £5.00 per student to cover the cost of student logbooks and certificates on successful completion of the course. The course is assessed as a pass or fail based on teacher observation, quality of written work and potential external assessment by other PE teachers.  Although these contributions are voluntary, please note that if we do not receive sufficient contributions, we will be unable to offer the course. 

We also offer students the opportunity to purchase ‘Perins Coach’ polo-shirts, which are navy and have ‘Perins Coach’ embroidered on the back. The polo-shirts can be worn for PE lessons, visits to primary schools and after-school clubs.  The polo-shirts are by no means compulsory, but we offer them as students like to be distinguished and have an alternative to the white polo-shirt. The cost of a polo-shirt is £13.74 and sizes available are small, medium and large. We have sample sizes available in the PE office should your son/daughter wish to try for sizing. Please contact Mrs Cobb in advance to view samples :  

To gain a place on the course please give consent on SCOPay by 9am Friday 8th July at the latest.
