Key objective remains to provide 2 hours sports activities per week + opportunity for 30mins physical activity per day.

Pupil premium children involved in additional activities – select children who aren’t always those that wish to join in / participate to try and raise interest in sports

  • ‘Can do’ water sports
  • Sitting volleyball
  • Indoor curling

Looking for additional funding opportunities to support replacement of the trim trail – Engaging Nadia Dailey (School Games Organiser) to help write a bid.

Sea Safety planned for July – invite confident swimmers to a day at the beach with lifeguards and firefighters to learn about safe swimming.

After school clubs well supported with many more now offered than previous years.
