Swalwell Primary School

Working together, learning together


Sports Council

The sports council is a new initiative for Swalwell Primary. It consists of pupils from each year group from year 2 to year 6, who meet in half termly meetings. This is when the children’s ideas flow and 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 Miss Mabon 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.

2.    To be able to inspire and develop the athletes of tomorrow.

3.    To showcase talents and develop skills by holding competitions.

4.    To promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles through providing sports activities which are inclusive.
