Sports Provision for Sept '14
A key topic for the 'Parent Forum' for the last term has been Sports provision for September.
To understand parent and pupils' views, a Sports survey was undertaken online, and a 'Pupil voice' survey was completed within School.
Feedback has been taken on board, and this has supported with planning Sports provision for September.
Sports provision in September:
We are delighted to inform you that the school has formed a new partnership with MMU (Manchester Metropolitan University) facilitated through Dr Eaves, a parent from Reception which will involve research in to maximising physical activity across playtimes, P.E and Clubs.
From September there will be a coach for PE in school every afternoon, leading sports provision. This extends the role of Sportscape to coach children from all classes. Weekly sports provision from September will consist of:
- 30 minutes for Reception to introduce children to physical activities as part of their playtime, this can be followed up across the week's lunchtime play (led by Mrs Parker)
- 1 hour for Year 1 & Year 2 (plus optional half hour lunchtime sessions)
- 2 hours for Years 3, 4, 5, & 6
Afterschool Sports Clubs:
There will be two free After school Club sessions led by the coach. This will be in addition to the chargeable sports clubs already in place and a possible additional fitness and games club for KS1 & KS2 that Georgia Bevan is looking at setting up (parent, and qualified sports coach).
A matrix will be developed for September outlining which clubs are available on which day.
The School would like to thank Steve Day and Mark Cooke (parents) for running the competitive football team. Mr Cornes (school support assistant), has also offered help with this from September.
A dedicated football specialist from Sportscape would also continue to run football skills clubs, and feedback has been taken on board about splitting age groups more.
Competitive teams for other sports such as Netball would also be desirable, if you are able to support with this in anyway, please contact Mrs Casserley.
Olympic fundraising — sports equipment:
The feedback from the Sports survey regarding the Olympic funds suggest that the majority of parents that completed the survey, would prefer the money to be spent on sports equipment for broad use within school. This will be followed up for next term.
The school would like to thank all the parents that completed the Sports survey, and the parents that have stepped forward to support the school with moving forward with school: Steve Day, Mark Cooke, Dr Eaves and Georgia Bevan.
