We are delighted that the government has recognised the value of high quality sports opportunities for children as we have always worked hard to promote and coach a wide range of sporting activities in our school.
The funding received by this school this year was £8,750. Whilst this is not a huge amount of money when spread across a whole school year and 173 children, it is very welcome in helping towards enhancing our current provision.
We will continue to ensure that:
• all children benefit regardless of sporting ability;
• that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments;
• that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development;
• that we continue to promote and develop children’s healthy life styles and physical activity levels.
I need to high-light the fact that in this school, our staff already provide high quality teaching in P.E. and sport within the curriculum and also during after school clubs and activities. They use their enthusiasm, time and expertise outside their working day and receive no additional salary for doing so. They will continue to do so in order that this new funding can provide opportunities over and above the comprehensive sports programme that we have always provided and will continue to provide free of charge.
