Westfield School Sporting Offer
to our Family of Schools 2013-14
An overview with how Westfield fit into the School Games
structure and the Points Learning Network.

Key Roles at Westfield School
Ian Spooner
School Games Organiser, Points Learning Network Manager
Most of you are probably aware of who Ian is. Under the previous government we had School
Sports Partnership and Ian was the manager of the Points Partnership. When the funding for
the partnerships was withdrawn Ian remained involved with Westfield in the capacity of School
Games Organiser. He then attempted to keep the Points Partnership together in some capacity
via the Points Learning Network.
Helen Stevens
Consultant at Westfield, Points Learning Network Strategic Manager
Many of you will also know Helen and she used to be the School Sports Co-Ordinator at
Westfield under the old structure of School Sports Partnerships. Under the School Games
Structure, Helen works with Westfield in a consultancy capacity but will mainly be involved with
schools in her role with the Points Learning Network.
David Millns
Schools Competition Organiser (Teacher Release Post), PE Teacher
24 months ago when the School Sports Partnerships were abolished nationwide, I was
approached to work in the new structure. In the School Games Structure I was given a one day
secondment with the remit of increasing Competitions, Festivals and Sporting Opportunities in
and around our Community. That is what I aim to do.
I work with a team of selected students at Westfield (Sports Leaders) to provide a range of
competitions and festivals to KS1 and KS2 students. Some of the competitions offered fit into
the School Games structure allowing the wining schools to progress further in a national
competition structure. I have to log the number of leaders and schools I work with and
evidence all that we do. Many of you need to be aware that I am now partly funded through the
Sports Premium Funding you have.

How it all Links Together
You will keep seeing key terms and names of organisations. Here’s a run down
about each one and how it all links together for your benefit.
Points Learning Network
Points Learning Network is a private organisation which many of you may have bought into. Schools
but into the network of schools and receive a Core Offer. The Core Offer can be mad up of whatever
you feel is needed on an educational front at your school. This may be coaches to deliver curriculum
time, resources or CPD. Ian Spooner is the Manager or the Network but is also the area School
Games Organiser. I (David Millns) works as Schools Competition Organiser and shares an office
therefore works very closely with Ian Spooner.
The biggest way in which the Network can link to what Westfield are doing and School Games is they
can use the Core Offer to get support for their students in preparation for Festivals and events. E.g.
they may choose to enter a Badminton Festival, so why not use the Core Offer to get a Badminton
Coach in to help in the preparation.
The Westfield Offer
Westfield strive to offer as much opportunity as possible for the family of schools to come and
compete using the Westfield Facilities. The school also strive to develop Young Leaders and allow
them to interact with primary age children to aid transition and build closer links within the
community. To achieve these aims, each school is sent an offer of competition and festivals at the
start of each year and entry information for each event as it approaches. I (David Millns) am
responsible for making this offer to all schools. All each school within the family has to do is commit
to taking part and enter where possible. I (David Millns) provide the Westfield Offer and I am being
partly funded by some of your Sports Premium, with this is mind please make the most of the offer
provided.
School Games
School Games is a national initiative. It is a competition structure that allows progression from the
earliest stage of local competition right through to National Championships. Many of what I (David
Millns) organise through the Westfield Offer fits into the School Games structure. There may be
other sports within the School Games that you are interested in but Westfield are not offering
competitions in that field. It is my responsibility to help you enter any sport you wish. All each
schools needs to do is register on the School Games Website and commit to the competitions they
wish to enter.

Additions to the Role
In addition to the Sporting Offer, David Millns can help in other ways also. This
includes…
Curriculum Support
Whether it be in the build up to a
festival/competition or in accordance
with your scheme of work, the Sports
Leaders and I can assist with your PE
Lessons.
Additional Competitions
If you want to enter additional
competitions whether they be part
of the School Games Structure or
otherwise, I can help.
Additional Opportunities
Change4Life
If additional opportunities arise that
may benefit your students, I will
aspire to make sure you receive the
relevant information. In the past
these opportunities have included
Olympic workshops can Cricket in the
Classroom.
The Sports Leaders are currently
working with a committed school
providing a Change4Life after School
Club for disengaged children. So far
the club has been a huge success. If
you feel this is something we can
help set up at your school, I can
facilitate this.
CPD Opportunities
Similar to other educational
opportunities arising for your
students, if CPD opportunities arise
that may benefit your staff, I will be
send it through to the PE contact.
Networking
As mentioned on a previous page,
The Points Learning Network, what
we are offering at Westfield and the
School Games can all intertwine. I
can help explain things and help the
systems link for your school upon
request.

Success Stories
We have had some huge success stories regarding the Sports Leaders who have since left Westfield.
Many of them have referred to their time as a Sports Leader as a factor to why they achieved all they
have. Though this doesn’t directly effect you, perhaps it may be beneficial for you to see how you are
helping our students. Maybe these are your former students also.
Elizabeth Sorsby
Westfield Sports Leaders 2009-2013.
Elizabeth (or Bessie as she is affectionately known to her friends) was quite simply a phenomenal student. She
achieved fantastic GCSE grades and was heavily involved in every aspect of the Sports Leadership Academy. She was
selected to be part of the Sheffield Academy of Young Leaders and was also heavily involved with the Youth Sports
Trust as a Young Ambassadors. Perhaps Bessie’s greatest achievement is that she has recently been selected from
hundreds of applicants to be part of the National steering Group leading all new Young Ambassadors. Bessie is now
studying A Levels at a high achieving 6th form and plans to study at university. It is quite humbling to hear her say
how much of her success stems from her involvement as a sports leader.
Asha Mistry
Westfield Sports Leaders 2008-2012
Asha was arguably one of Westfield’s most successful ever students. She too was noted for her incredible
organisation skills and through being in the Sports Leaders Academy she developed a whole host of skills. She was
selected for the Sheffield Academy of Young Leaders and is still heavily involved. She has volunteered countless
hours through this qualification and has worked closely with the Youth Sports Trust. Asha recently came second in
the Youth Sports Trust Young Person of the Year Award. She is currently studying at Sheffield College and plans to
extend her studies at University.
Hayley Simpson
Westfield Sports Leaders 2007-2011
Hayley's story is quite remarkable. She was a fantastic leader at Westfield and was quickly selected to be part of the
Sheffield Academy of Young Leaders. She flourished in her role as a leader and volunteered for countless hours
across the city. Hayley was last year selected to be a Games Maker at London 2012 at the age of 18 and said without
the skills she learnt through being part of the Westfield Leadership Academy, she would never have had that
opportunity. Hayley currently studying to be a PE teacher at Sheffield Hallam University.
Interestingly, in the last 4 years ALL our of Sports Leaders
left with 5A*-Cs including English and Maths. ALL going on
to further study or employment.

Here to Help
Westfield wants to make our family of schools are strong family. We believe sport
can be at the heart of this. Sport can build relationships, develop confidence early
and aid transition. Ultimately we are here to help.
If your school need any support on a sporting front, please never hesitate to
contact me.
