Active Dorset School Sport Conference

This year’s Active Dorset School Sports Conference was held at Queen Elizabeth’s School, Wimborne with the theme of Active Lives = Active Minds. The 2016 event looked at how PE, school sport and physical activity contribute to academic and emotional well-being.

This topic comes at a great time as Sport England has launched a new strategy ‘Towards an Active Nation’ which looks to increase the number of people who engage in sport and activity, not for its own sake but for the wider benefits it can bring.

Exhibiting for the past two years Rockley was joined by organisations and National Governing Bodies of Sport including England Handball, Youth Sports Trust, Rippa Rugby, England Netball, Dorset County Council and Premier Sport. Delegates also heard from keynote speakers Rebecca Clark, Regional Schools Commissioner for South-West England on building mental wealth; Marilyn Tucknott, an education mental health trainer and consultant discussed the collective strength and shared responsibilities and Rob Belbin, EFDS Trustee covered inclusion.

Rockley Schools Manager, Keiron Ranking commented on the event: “The best event. It was really well organised and was well worth us being there. We have been attending the event for the past two years and it was great to be back at my old school.

“We gained a huge amount of feedback and enquiries from the teachers ranging from interest in days at Poole Park, UK residential groups and French activity trips. It is also an essential networking event for us to meet with Head Teachers, Department Heads and Physical Education teachers.”

Continuing our work with Active Dorset we look forward to attending the Conference again next year and we will once again be hosting the Can Do Festival and Dorset School Games sailing events in Poole Park in 2017.
