We value sports and active children so have welcomed the government sports funding. In the year 2017/18 the school received £17,600, in 2018/19 the school will receive .
We use our funding to support our staff in promoting physical activity with our children.
The children in Year 2 also have specialist coaching from a tennis coach each term and school staff learn alongside the children to develop their own skills.
We also employ a sports coach to offer lunchtime activities to the children in Year 1 and 2. The coach works alongside our lunchtime staff to encourage activity during the lunch break. Each day there are a range of supervised activities provided, including hula hooping, football, tennis and hockey skills, that the children can drop into for a few minutes or spend a large part of their lunchtimes participating in. These sessions prove very popular and promote a range of sports, encouraging participation.
The funding helps ensure their is sufficient equipment available to promote the active lunchtimes.
The coaches have supplemented the existing school expertise ensuring that children wide access to a range of sports skills. They provide models and training for the staff (teaching and non teaching) to support the promotion of good quality physical activity.The children also have high levels of activity through the school day and have a good knowledge of the benefits of exercise.
The school has had a daily km track installed on the school field which is promoting the activity level of children during lessons and at break.
We ensure we have enough equipment for PE and extra curricular sport and also carry out safety checks on our existing equipment.
