As part of our leadership specialism work we are having a visit from Natasha Jonas who is competing in the 2012 Olympics GB Team. Natasha will be talking to our Year 11 students, student council and Gifted and Talented PE students from Kearsley Academy and partner primary schools.
Natasha is part of the Sky Sports 'Living for Sport' mentoring programme, which aims to:
Boost confidence
Change behaviours
Increase attainment
Improve life skills

This event ties in with our leadership work, our unit theme on Olympics within the Year 7 Accelerated Curriculum, as well as the 'Personal Learning and Thinking Skills' which are embedded within our Academy Curriculum. It will be a great day and we will post up further information after the event.
