Sports Premium Grant
At Hollins Grundy children participate in a variety of different sporting activities both competitive and non-competitive. We believe that all children should be encouraged to enjoy sports and other physical activities as a way of staying healthy, developing social skills and of building friendships. We encourage all children to develop their sporting abilities to the highest level possible.
The government is currently providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.
The funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for all pupils. This is aimed at increasing participation in physical activity and encouraging pupils to develop healthy lifestyles.
In addition to our PE curriculum and after school sports clubs we have:
- Employed specialist qualified coaches to work alongside our teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and teaching skills in PE lessons.
- Swimming provision. Last year, Y3 had swimming lessons. 77% of the children in our year 6 class were able to swim 25m or more.
- Employed a coach for our Netball team.
- Employed a coach for our Football team.
In addition to the key elements of sports provision detailed above school intends to use funding to inspire children to achieve more in their physical activities by arranging visits from Olympic athletes and Paralympians and to attend more inter-school competitive sports events. These will be arranged throughout the school year.
