Sport Premium

Over the last academic year, PE has developed significantly.  The use of specialised coaches to deliver lessons on a Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon has not only raised the profile of PE but also helped to improve staff confidence and skills.  Parents and children have reported that they are happy with the changes that have happened with PE over the last few years.  The children enjoy PE.  Many lessons observed have been of a very high quality with noticeable progress.  A strong foundation for PE is now in place and this can be further built on in the coming years.

With a focus on fitness, the children are now aware of the impact that PE and sport have on their bodies.  The staff have been given idea of how to teach fitness and monitor it within their class.  The children have started to show measurable improvements in their fitness which will hopefully progress over the next year.

The uptake of extra-curricular activities has increased with the following free clubs that have been offered over the course of the year: 

  • Cricket 
  • Y 5/6 Football 
  • Y3/4 Football (mixed) 
  • High fives  
  • Lunch time social support group 
  • Kurling (KS1) 
  • Athletics (KS1) 
  • Multiskills 
  • Y5/6 Girls Football 
  • Kurling (KS2) 
  • Athletics (KS2) 
  • Dance 

As well as this, the children have also been offered the following clubs for a minimal payment: 

  • Judo 
  • Tri Golf 
  • Multi Skills 
  • Olympics 
  • R – Y4 football 
  • Fencing 

The school has entered many competitions in the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley partnership, achieving success in many of these.  The football team reached the Lancashire finals and other teams medalled in many sports.  The Y4/5 cricket team and the Y3/4 tri golf team reached the Lancashire School Games finals.
