Sports Funding


 During the next year, we will work with Suzanne Rath (Mawdesley Tennis Centre) to further build confidence and aim for staff the jointly lead the PE lessons with her. In this way they are actively taking on board the necessary CPD and reinforcing it with practical application. Furthermore, the transition to the Tennis Centre means that school benefits from cutting edge, flood-lit courts and outdoor arena. We believe that this approach of shared leadership on a local basis means that our PE is outstanding AND sustainable into the future.

In 2016/17 we began working with Mindology who have introduced our children to 'Relax Kids'. Relax Kids strategies use therapeutic exercise and yoga, breathing exercises, and mindfulness exercises to help children relax and reduce anger and stress situations. Our school has begun an 8 week programme. Every child in our school was involved with these sessions. This will be continuing during 2017/18.

Our plan below shows how we will make further improvements to our sports offering, and the impact this will have on our children throughout 2017 / 2018
