At The de Ferrers Academy we don’t just want our students to develop holistically, we want this for our staff too. Each week there are a number of 'physical' options for staff to choose. For example, before school personal training and Thursday night badminton club. The benefits of this are huge - at this academy, we are a team, getting together in these settings allows us to discuss and share ideas in an informal way. It is not just the social aspect which we are building upon, physical activity makes us feel better about ourselves.
Our physical well-being sessions do not stop on Fridays. Staff take part in weekly park runs. There are a number of staff members currently training for Derby 10km where they will compete in small teams. You do not need to have run before, support and training is available. We are looking at entering other running and triathlon events as 'Team DFA'. In addition we will have mini competitions in a range of sports such as netball, football, badminton.
In short, our activities are open to anyone who enjoys a little bit of sport or physical activity and wants to help promote physical well being. Anyone is welcome regardless of their sporting ability.
