PE and Sport Premium Fund
Our PE and Sport Premium allocation for 2017-18 is £9000
We employ a Gymnastics Coach; Mrs M Robinson who runs an out of school club on a Saturday morning free of charge. We employ a Table Tennis Coach; Mr N Besford who teaches in school and runs an out of school club. We enhance our sporting facilities by hiring the field adjacent to our sports hall. We buy into Tees Valley Sporting Partnership and compete against other schools. We have had lots of success last year; in athletics and Table Tennis children competed successfully at regional level. We have after school football and cricket and play other local schools regularly. A local cricket coach worked in school and provided a link with Thornaby Cricket Club to engage many of our pupils in out of school provision. The sports hall is let by a Gymnastics Club and a Martial Arts Club which encourages pupil participation.
The Big Lottery Fund
We were successful in bidding for a grant to improve our children’s health and fitness by providing additional sports coaches to encourage active participation across school. The programme is delivered by SCCS who send coaches in to work with children at lunchtime and after school. Participation is excellent and children certainly get active.
