At Friarswood, we have used our money to fund sports coaches to come into school and work with not just the children but the staff as well.

The children have gained more stamina, strength and learnt a great deal about being healthy as well as experiencing a broad range of activities.  Our teachers, who work with the coaches, have gained a lot of insight into how to improve their own teaching of PE for the future.

This year we are spending our sports money on:

Extra swimming- year 4, 5 & 6 children who are unable to swim 25 metres safely and unaided are having extra swimming lessons to help improve the water safety and swimming skills.

Continued Professional Development (CPD) of staff in school.

Tournament training - at lunchtimes, we are training children ready for a variety of sporting tournaments.

Further PE equipment

Training of the PE lead in school to achieve the Level 5 PE award

Last year we achieved the Gold Sports Award.  We are hoping to contiune this success this academic year.

Ask your child about their PE and what they have been up to.  Maybe you could both do some activities together!

If you would like further details of the PE in school, please ask your teacher.
