SC.OUT.ED, working in partnership with Ushaw, deliver exciting & adventurous days in the amazing grounds surrounding the main house. Ushaw has a long tradition of embracing the outdoors and the grounds have been used for 100s of years for sports particular to the college.

Due to the adventurous nature of the activities and encouraging children to become more active, Sports Premium Funding can be used to access this programme.

All activities are delivered by qualified staff.

Sports:

‘Cat’ is a sport unique to Ushaw. Played on a circular ring, like baseball.

‘Battledore’ is like squash. It is played against high three sided courts of the outer walls and the object is simply to hit a shot that your opponent cannot return.

Sports:

‘Handball’ is played in small cave-like spaces, set back into the outer walls.. It is, again, rather like squash but with the addition of being able to hit the ball off the ceiling too. Played with large thick gloves rather than a racquet.

What People Say

Sam is a wonderful trainer.  His outdoor pursuits inspired us with a multitude of reasons to embrace all aspects of nature and outdoor life. The students attending this course were all motivated to follow in Sam’s footsteps and engage children in a variety of fun outdoor activities with children in their own settings.

Wendy Jackson, Bishop Auckland College

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!

Gemma Preece, St Oswald’s

Over the three sessions, all the children learnt new skills and enjoyed their time outdoors! It gave me increased knowledge and the confidence to plan and to deliver similar activities myself. The original aim, to link to PE and specifically an outdoor and adventurous activity core task, was met – especially on teamworking and cooperation. All the sessions were well planned and organised and they were delivered and managed well. Every activity challenged the children and taught them new skills. It was good to see less confident children have the opportunity to shine too!

Denise Hannon, St Chad’s RCVA Primary

Sam has worked with our children to teach them about saving and conserving energy. He explained a complicated concept in an entertaining and lively way that was accessible to all our children. He was friendly and approachable, encouraging easy communication with staff and children.
The children thoroughly enjoyed his lessons and continued to talk about what they had learnt, long after Sam had left. Sam has also been invaluable in promoting outdoor learning, training staff and has run inspirational forest schools sessions with our children. I would thoroughly recommend him to others!

Jeanne O’Keefe, Oxclose Nursery

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.
