All In Festival 

Chelmsford Schools Sports Partnership  

2nd December 2019

Our children had a fantastic time at the ‘All In’ event delivered by the Chelmsford Schools Sports Partnership.


We were lucky enough to be able to send 10 of our children with additional needs to represent BFIS at the sporting event, and they had a brilliant time trying out the various activities. 


Trampolining, Archery and Volley Ball among many other sports were available for the children to try. This was a great opportunity for them to access sports opportunities that we wouldn’t usually be able to offer.  It also complemented our Gym Trail sessions that we run in school.

Not only did this enrichment activity support the development of the children’s gross and fine motor skills, it also proved very effective in developing their confidence.  The children worked together to achieve stickers to complete our award certificate.  They had to focus on 6 key skills as they moved around the activities: self-belief, respect, determination, passion, honesty, and teamwork.     


We were very proud of how the children tackled new challenges and of the outstanding behaviour they demonstrated throughout.


We hope that this will continue as an annual event, as the children (and staff!) enjoyed it so much.
