PE and Sport Premium
We work closely with Joseph Whitaker Secondary School, which has sports college status, to enhance the quality of our work in P.E. Our Year 6 children benefit from half a term of transition by visiting Joseph Whitaker for their P.E. sessions during the Autumn Term (accompanied by staff from school). They then participate each term in an inter-school festival with the local feeder primary schools to enable them to get to know the children in their future classes at secondary school.
Children from Years 1-5 also benefit from regular coaching by Joseph Whitaker staff in school in their P.E. sessions and take part in sporting festivals with the other local primary schools. We are fortunate that we have a large playing field as well as extensive playgrounds which are used effectively to ensure that all children receive the 2 hours per week of P.E. that they are entitled to.
