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

We have been working with SC.OUT.ED for two years now. In that time we have had no complaints – Chris has never arrived late and he is always very prepared…I’ve never seen so many items of equipment carried by one person! The children love the sessions; they come running the minute he arrives and always want to help out. Chris has a lovely, nurturing manner with the children and a sunny personality. The whole school is always happy to see him; staff included; there is nothing Chris will not try to complete in a session and there are no children he is not willing to work with. During our sessions Chris works with our whole school from our littlest two year olds to our nurture group who  often have significant SEMH needs. Chris is a member of our school team; he’ll even help out over the dinner-time between his sessions – I am sure no other company would be as helpful.

On a learning note, we have noticed our children have become much more resilient since starting SC.OUT.ED – they do not mind being outside whatever the weather and we see more cooperation and teamwork taking place long after Chris has gone home. On playtimes and lunchtimes we see the children applying their skills by making dens on the field and sharing their resources fairly. We have also analysed our attendance and find that most classes have 100% attendance on the days that SC.OUT.ED are working with them; this has helped our attendance improve over the last two years.

I could not recommend SC.OUT.ED more highly; they are truly a professional company. Communication is always quick and all services are transparent. I can’t wait to work with them again soon.

Emma Rowntree Headteacher, Seascape Primary School

During a den building activity it was great to see how quieter children showed their capacity for leadership and imagination.  The activities Sam delivered were engaging, challenging and required teamwork plus led to some good writing afterwards.

Nicola Welsh, Middlestone Moor Primary

This was the most enjoyable training course I’ve been on in some time! The course leaders were really helpful and knowledgeable. I feel inspired to motivate the children and to start some growing activities! Thank you so much.

Louise Gardner, St Mary’s RCVA Primary

Sam’s approach to our science topic, ‘dissolving’, promoted autonomy and self discovery. The children learnt some theory, put the theory into practise and then explained what had happened – the children loved it! I have learnt that the children need to have time for self discovery in order to better understand science. Sam was extremely organised and it made for a stress free activity day. I’d seriously recommend Sam to other schools, he’s great!

Dawn Whaley, Hartside Primary School

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!
