Sports Premium

This year we have focused on moving our physical education and sports offer into our virtual and home-learning provision. Our children had bespoke fitness sessions during lockdown from our sports coach and teachers and they were also involved in virtual events with other schools.

This has been very successful, with children hugely enjoying the experiences and taking part in an inclusive and reciprocal way.

Back in school, we have worked on having very active playtimes, utilising the skills of our older children as "Sports Leaders" to enhance the activities on offer. Following our whole school are parent skipping workshops, children are keen skippers and can be seen practising tricks at playtime.

We have a number of active approaches to improving self-esteem, confidence, strength, agility and balance:

  • Paul Matthews runs small group and 1:1 training sessions with key children
  • We take key children to the climbing wall st St Francis school
  • We have secured a hard-to-come-by place at Manton Riding Stables as part of the RDA scheme. This is a block of sessions for a key child, nominated by staff.

In line with getting pupils more active during the school day, we have introduced "Wake and Shake" style morning activities in the hall. We also run "The ERA 1K" once a week.
