Bhylls Acre Primary School Sport Premium 2017/18
We have used the Primary School Sport Premium to enhance our provision of PE across the school. Sports Plus provide additional lunchtime activities for the whole school on a weekly basis. A newly appointed support teacher with a specialism in sports provision will also upskill teaching staff with valuable INSET.
As a school, we are developing our extra-curricular provision through the course of the year; we have increased the number of after-school clubs and are offering them a wider age range than previously offered. Building upon our sucess of last year we continue to be involved with local sports leagues, such as football, netball and tag rugby. This encourages our children to compete in competitions within a variety of levels. As a result school now has the 'Gold' ward for school games.
Soccer Coaching 2000 provide football coaching for KS2 pupils. 'Sportforschools' coaching provide a weekly Olympic Club covering a variety of sesonal olympic style games
Years 3 and 4 take part in swimming lessons at a local pool, led by suitably qualified staff. These lessons are tailored to their swimming ability and they have the opportunity to gain recognised swimming awards. This year, we have also targeted a number of year 5 who have not yet gained the ability to swim 25 metres. These children have been invited to join in the weekly lesson. Every year we also aim to take part in the “Top Up Swimming” to ensure that all pupils leaving Bhylls Acre in Year 6 are at least able to swim 25 metres. We are hoping that this opportunity will be on offer again in the summer term.
Through the annual Year 6 residential visit to The Pioneer Centre, children will be able to take part in a variety of outdoor and indoor activities such as archery, climbing, raft building.
