This year our school has registered with the British Heart Foundation's (BHF) ‘Jump Rope for Heart’ programme. An important part of Jump Rope For Heart is the organisation of a ‘Jump Off’. This is a sponsored event which took place at the end of a progressive series of skipping lessons and enabled the children to demonstrate, through a number of activities, how they have developed their skipping ability.

The ‘Jump Off’ provided an ideal opportunity for children to take part in an excellent heart health activity in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and, at the same time, to raise valuable sponsorship money for the work of the BHF, the nation’s heart charity, and the school. The school raised over £300 pounds for the charity.
