Sports

As well as developing children academically, we feel it is very important to develop children’s skills in sports. Children will learn about keeping healthy and develop team spirit as well as providing opportunities for children to excel in a range of sports.

In addition to weekly PE lessons, we offer a range of after-school sports clubs such as gymnastics, netball, hockey, football and zumba.

We also take part in competitions throughout the year such as tennis, league games and cross country.

Every year, weather permitting, there is a school Sports Day where children take part in a variety of races winning points for their House.

We also take part in inclusion events with our cluster primary schools at the local high school, Birchwood Community High School.

The Government recognises the importance of developing sport in primary schools and has provided all schools with funding to develop sport further. Please see the link to see how we are spending our funding.

In April 2015 we were given £9325 to spend on developing sports in school. Below are links to tell you a bit more about the funding and how we spent our allocation last year and our plans for this year.

In October 2016 we were awarded the Bronze School Games award for our engagement, participation and delivery of competitive sports. school-games-logo
