Badu sports has a two-fold focus; we focus on both educational and community development, using sports as our initial tool of engagement to achieve our aims.
A core focus at Badu is mentoring. We deliver a bespoke mentorship programme for our young people. We aim to offer positive role models, advice and guidance so that from an early age our young people form the positive habit of forward and goal setting to setting. Resultingly, while we provide a high standard in physical education to develop a healthier body, we also provide mentoring to develop a healthier mind.
In addition to this, we maintain high expectations for all our members staff to ensure that all children which Badu engage, develop and progress to the best of their abilities, resulting in high expectations of themselves. We aim to support and facilitate children to broaden their experiences, advance their opportunities, develop their skills and knowledge and understand their choices, aspirations and expectations.
Supporting sports, parents and pupils:
We support schools, children and their families by providing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teaching support for school staff. We offer reliable and dedicated Planning, Preparation and Assessments (PPA) cover for classroom teachers to ensure that the school we operate in meet the government guidelines of a minimum of 2 hours high quality PE each week. We also offer lunchtime cover and supervisor training in how to engage children during lunchtimes.
What sets us apart
Badu Sports have been in operation for over ten years, we adapt the curriculum to the needs of schools keeping within the government basic guidelines. We have nurtured positive relationships with the school communities including children and their families. This ensures that we know the children we are working with and know the strategies that work best for them.
As a company we have developed our teaching; working closely with headteachers, school staff and children to ensure that the curriculum we offer has all the criteria they deem necessary for the school and its context. We also ensure that we are meeting all of the criteria stipulated in the school behaviour policy to ensure we are sharing the same messages as school staff.
