Our school aims to give pupils a wide experience of sporting activities and devises programmes that develop associated skills. The school has good facilities for sport development, with two football pitches, athletics field, netball court and other hard play areas. Pupils will partake in 2 hours of PE each week that develop the fundimental skills. Pupils at school will also be offered a wide range of sports clubs including the following sports: dance, wake and shake, football, netball, tag rugby, dodgeball, yoga, golf, tennis, hockey, basketball, athletics, swimming, multi-skills and cross country running, to name a few. The school regularly enters competitions and is represented in area leagues.
The Sainsbury's School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.
The Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, at county/area level and a national finals event:
• Level 1 - sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition
• Level 2 - individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competitions
• Level 3 – the county/area will stage multi-sport Sainsbury's School Games festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition
• Level 4 – the Sainsbury's School Games finals: a national multi-sport event where the most talented young people in the UK will be selected to compete in our sporting venues
The Games are designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.
Nationally and locally the Sainsbury's School Games is being delivered through partnerships. The national partnership is made up of:
- the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), which has overall policy leadership, supported by the Department for Education (DofE) and the Department of Health (DOH);
- Sport England, which is the Lottery distributor and are supporting the engagement of Sports Governing Bodies and County Sports Partnerships;
- the Youth Sport Trust, the landscape lead organisation for school sport, which has been commissioned by Sport England to provide development support to schools, sports and other local partners.
Over £128m of Lottery and Government funding is being invested to support the School Games. This includes: up to £35.5m Lottery funding from Sport England between 2010-15; £28.4m exchequer funding from the Department of Health and Sport England to fund 450 School Games Organisers (SGOs) and Change 4 Life Clubs; £65m exchequer funding from the DOE to release a PE teacher for one day a week in all secondary schools.
At a local level, the Sainsbury's School Games will be delivered by schools, clubs, county sports partnerships and other local partners. Local Organising Committees (LOCs) are being set up, chaired by Head Teachers, to oversee the county festivals. County sports partnerships have an important role to play in helping to stage the festivals.
There is a range of sporting extra-curricular activities available to pupils during the year and the schools' curriculum meets the requirements of the National Curriculum.
