ARROWS ARCHERY

CHILD FRIENDLY & EASILY ACCESSED

Arrows archery was created in 2012 as a introduction for primary school children to archery in a fun and safe way.

This ‘mini’ version of archery allows schools to provide their pupils with the opportunity to get a taste for archery with child-friendly equipment to get children started quickly and easily.

Our specialists make it possible to introduce archery concepts and skills to your pupils through fun activities rather than technical instruction.

The activities within Arrows archery enable us to use archery as a way of encouraging learning in other areas; for example maths through scoring, literacy through language, and citizenship through cooperation and self-discipline.

Arrows provides an alternative and complementary way of developing movement skills (e.g coordination, balance and strength), personal, social and mental skills, as well as archery skills.

This service can be used as P.E sessions, enrichment within the curriculum or as an after school club ran by our qualified staff.

HOW IS PROGRESSION MADE

We hope that once children have expeirenced fun and active archery at school through Arrows archery, they will be enthused to have a go at the traditional sport of archery. As a company we have created several exit routes from this programme which children can take, to help them begin archery outside of their school life.

A competitive festival format is also available to primary schools with Arrows and this is the suggested competition format for the primary school games. Should you wish us to run a festival within your school please just get in touch.

IMPROVEMENT INDICATORS

Our Arrows Archery programme will help your school to broaden the variety of sport and physical education within school, ensuring all pupils and teachers have a new positive experience, whilst encouraging individuals to seek a healthy active lifestyle.

Ultimately this service will look to make improvements within the following areas:

Increased participation in P.E and competitive sport.

The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Kick starting healthy active lifestyles.

Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff and pupils within teaching P.E and school sport.

Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

The profile of P.E and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS THINK?

MISS CAFFERY SAYS…


After speaking with our foundation stage teachers they were really pleased with the quality and delivery of the Balanceability programme. They have said that the activities are well maintained and that there is a very clear development, when looking at the skills the children are running through during the whole session
