Exciting News - Off The Couch

Our school has been chosen to pilot a brand new initiative called "Off The Couch" as part of the Healthier Child Programme. Barby School is one of only 15 schools countrywide to have been handpicked to pilot this exciting initiative which aims to get children in years 5 and 6 to be more active outside of school hours.

Our children will be filling out booklets weekly to evidence their physical activities. During this project, there will be spot-check prizes for completing each stage. Once the children have completed the first four levels, they have the opportunity to progress to the Healthier Child Champion Stage at which point they can begin to work towards their Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. Any child in this area completing the Gold level will be recognised at the prestigious Northamptonshire Sports Celebration evening.

Oaks have already risen to the challenge and are already engaged with the project.

If you have any questions about the above, please do not hesitate to speak to Mr Adkins or Mrs Morris, who will be overseeing this project for Barby School.
