Sport and PE have played a huge part in our successes this year. We have utilised our Sports Premium funds to raise standards, participation and enjoyment levels in sport, physical activity and health for ALL pupils. So far, our funding has been spent on the following:

Providing a range of exciting extra-curricular clubs, for all ages, free of charge. We have had a significant uptake in clubs - some clubs now have up to 60 pupils which in the past had difficulty in attracting 30.

Staff CPD/training.

A new and innovative curriculum, focusing on the fundamental movement skills.

£1,000 has been spent on sports equipment, ranging from hurdles, a long jump and a tug of war rope.

SMSAs have been given appropriate training on how to engage children in sport throughout lunchtimes.

'5 a Day' resource. This is an interactive programme that allows the children to participate in five minutes of aerobic activities within the classroom.

SEN interventions for those children with fundamental movement problems.

Gifted and Talented programme for pupils throughout the school.

Once a week, a sports coach will set up a selection of games and referee matches, during the lunch time.

Homework bags for Sport.

A Leadership programme for Y4 and Y5 pupils.

A school trip to Bath University for Years 1 and 2.

 

Our biggest success recently has had to be our 'Sports Week'. Every child experienced at least 7 hours of PE throughout the week, whilst learning a range of new sports: archery, bootcamp, handball, lacrosse, yoga and street dance. Other sporting professionals (physiotherapists and nutritionists) came and gave inspirational talks to each class. The school was buzzing with excitement and we saw the children at their best: being excited about their learning, working collaboratively and finding some hidden talents!  

We have begun to participate in competitions in the wider community! The children representing our school have shown exceptional sportsmanship, talent and it has created memories that they will always remember. A number of children took part in the Chew Valley 1km run – a number of staff took part in the 10k run too! Sport has had a huge impact on our children. If you would like to see this in more detail, then I would be happy to share it.  

Our successes have been recognised by BANES, as we won the Contribution of Sport In Education Award, not to mention winning the Bath Rugby Teachers' Tag Tournament 2014 on the 9th July. GO TEAM WELTON!
