Baddow Hall Junior School are a successful school situated in the heart of Great Baddow. Their success can be measured and seen in many ways – in the school's most recent Ofsted inspection report, in their assessment outcomes, from discussions with parents – but most importantly, in the young lives of all pupils who develop as effective learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
Baddow Hall Junior School's vision is to provide a creative, enjoyable and encouraging place to develop where all children will grow academically, personally and socially. With the pupils at the heart of all they do, they also provide a rich and stimulating curriculum in a safe and happy environment that supports learning and achievement for all. Baddow Hall Junior School know that every child has individual needs which they work to meet so each pupil can do their very best. Individual and collective achievement is celebrated and positive rewards are used to promote both good behaviour and learning. The school encourage mutual respect, good manners and tolerance.
At Baddow Hall Juniors, they work closely with the partner Infant School on the shared site. The school grounds are spacious and provide great opportunities for outdoor learning, as well as play, sport and family events. There is a strong focus on maintaining good relationships in a partnership between home and school.
HOW I STARTED
When I was younger, I was a massive football fan. I watched it all the time with my brothers. One day I saw a player score a goal and do a somersault to celebrate, I thought to myself; wow, I wish I could do that. The next few weeks I drove my mum crazy cartwheeling and being upside down in the house so she took me to a gymnastics club, red bridge gymnastics club I was aged 6. The club talent identified me and told me to more to a better facilitated club called east London, I was here for 5 years which is where my love for the sport grew. I found myself progressing rapidly and was spotted my the national head coach, I was put onto the elite performance pathway along with other children my age from various clubs. It wasn’t long before I was competing In my first competition for Great Britain, I loved every minute and thought to myself, this is what I want to do, I’m going to make it to the Olympics one day. I thrived of the buzz of competing and used this to my advantage to advance my gymnastics career.
MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT
My greatest achievement is undoubtedly winning a gold medal in the World Cup. It was an enormous achievement for me at the time, and it filled me with joy! To know my family were watching me from the stands made it even more special. I even shed a tear when standing on the podium!
My hobbies include cooking, fitness and films. I love cooking a range of different meals, although my favourite has to be a simple crushed Avocado on toast! I also adore film, going to the cinema with friends is one of my favourite pastimes!
Who are we?
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Baddow Hall Junior School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns.
Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.
While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!
Sports For Champions events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. Sports For Champions is an audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.
During the assembly, Sports For Champions athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, Sports For Champions envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.
Alongside Team Sports For Champions, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.
Sports For Champions offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.
Baddow Hall Junior School will be receiving an inspirational visit from renowned World Cup Gold Medalist Courtney Tulloch on the 20th of June 2022 and we need your support!
The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.
