Encouraging healthier lifestyles

Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy

The Youth Sports Trust approached Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy working in partnership with Erewash School sports partnership) to pilot a Youth Sports Award, designed to encourage healthier lifestyles in the academy's Year 7 students.

The students had to enter information in a log book to track their progress from September until November 2017, across three areas - wellbeing, achievement and volunteering.

The Students went into local primary schools to encourage healthy active lifestyles, as well as hosting sports sessions and a 'mini mover' festival to improve motor skills.

76% (110 of 144) of our students completed the award and received badges and t-shirts.
