Gamesweek Staff

Mr Fred Dickinson is a member of the Sports Department at Newcastle Royal Grammar School with 30 years of teaching experience.
The majority of the staff we select will be qualified in – or studying towards a career in – education, childcare or leisure. Gamesweek has strong links with local Gymnastic, Trampoline, Athletics, Football, Rugby, Tennis and Swimming Clubs to employ some of the best coaches in the area.
Gamesweek has a deliberate policy to employ qualified and experienced Teachers. In summer 2010 more than 40% of our staff had Qualified Teacher Status. Most Under 8 group leaders are Qualified Primary School Teachers who are assigned their own classroom.
All staff are appropriately qualified, well trained and highly motivated. We have certain key people who have been with us for many years and are outstanding assets to Gamesweek e.g. the head trampoline and gymnastic coaches, lead swimming teacher and art teacher.
All Swimming will be taught by a qualified Swimming Teacher and qualified Lifeguards will be present at all times.
All staff provide professional references and have undergone an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check (CRB). Both Mr & Mrs Dickinson have undergone safeguarding training and hold current certificates.
Every child's safety and well being is our main concern. Gamesweek provides an exciting week of activities in a safe, fully supervised environment. We strive to offer a friendly, family atmosphere and encourage positive behaviour.
