PE Funding 2016/2017 – £8460
During the last financial year, we have broadened our PE curriculum with the introduction of additional games such as tag rugby and cricket. Children have experienced different dance genres. For instance, junior children studying 'France' enjoyed a good workout whilst dancing the 'Can Can'. Teachers have found these sessions to be very usful professional development and the training has embedded these choices into our broadening PE curriculum.
In additon, we have installed a superb asto-turf multi-sports surface for use by all children which is being made good use of during PE lessons and playtimes.
