The Sheriff’s Challenge is a series of activities for primary school-age children encouraging them to walk, run, swim and cycle.

Here at Rise part we compete in the running challenge. The ‘Running’ Challenge (AKA Active Mile / The Daily Mile) is FREE for Nottingham City schools to take part.  Benefits include promoting better health and wellbeing, children being outdoors and active, improved concentration, attainment, behaviour and attendance.

The Sheriff’s challenge is a really simple way to measure the fitness of children throughout the course of a school year as well as promoting our four PE drivers that link in well with the Sheriff’s challenge concept, respecting the rules of the task, demonstrating resilience when situations may get a little tricky, collaborating with others (how can we support each other) and being aware of our own and others emotions whilst participating in activity

Pupils get the opportunity to run around ours track that is marked on the school playground, the track measures 50 meters for KS1 and 100 metres for KS2. Pupils are encouraged to run the Sheriff’s challenge with their class teacher a minimum of three times per week in slots that work for that class, it can be ran in school uniform, making the children energised through movement and has transferred positively into the classroom. Pupil laps are recorded over the course of the school year and our children are able to see how many laps they have ran easily with the aid of our Sheriff’s Challenge whiteboards that are updated by our Sheriff’s challenge monitors.

Throughout the week pupils are able to compete against others and even themselves to achieve personal bests. The winning class from each key stage is awarded the Sheriff challenge cup until the next week

Most importantly at Rise Park we want children to understand the need to be active and at the same time enjoy being active.

The City Mayor has challenged all City schools to cumulatively Walk, Jog or Run around the world which equates to a staggering 25,000 Miles. The great thing about the Sheriffs Challenge is that other City schools will be taking part and this gives an opportunity to compete virtually against other schools. Who will top the leader board?

Sheriff’s Challenge Data

The data shown below is recorded over the course of the year, the numbers in the term columns are the total amount of laps (KS2 – 100m) ran by each week. The main objective of the Sheriff’s challenge at Rise Park Primary and Nursery is to see progression in our children’s fitness levels.

Although we had took part in Sheriff’s challenge previously, this academic year we took the action to give this whole school initiative our focus, making the decision to try and get out daily for Spring 1 and reduced the expectation to three times a week which staff voice has communicated works better with class teachers timetables and still allows all chn to have an extra 45 mins of activity each week. The Sheriff’s challenge used to be incorporated into PE lessons, which took time away from the quality hour of coaching with sport specialist and is now managed by class teachers in 15 minutes pockets of time that works with the class timetable that week. The chn can run the sheriff’s challenge in their school uniform, go out to the Sheriff’s challenge course measured on our playgrounds and continue to run laps until half of the class has slowed to a walking pace. ALL chn are encouraged and frequently reminded that this is not a race and that pacing yourself is a recipe for success.

The Sheriff’s Challenge embodies our four PE key drivers:

  • Resilience – When fatigue sets and running becomes uncomfortable, do we give up and can we remain at a slow constant jog to keep the performance continuing for yourself and the class, because remember if half of the group stops, we all stop.
  • Respect for the rules – Keeping to the course and not cutting the corners to ensuring running the full distance of each lap.
  • Collaborating with others – Shared team sense of responsibility – can we encourage others in class to keep moving and keep the time allowed to run laps for going.
  • Emotional Awareness – Can we demonstrate empathy, how are other people feeling, how can we spot these triggers and how do we have to behave to get the most out of different personalities in the team.

The four main factors that can affect class scores:

  • Number of chn in class
  • Number of weeks in half term,
  • Weather
  • Participation (amount of times each class gets out to run weekly)
