Bhylls Acre Primary School Sport Premium 2018/19
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. We now have a speciaslist sports coach who we utlise to upskill our teaching staff and provide a wide variety of Sporting activities for pupils of all abilities and ages during the school week.
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, cross country, cricket, tri golf and tag rugby. This encourages our children to compete in competitions within a variety of levels, including County standard. As a result school, for the second year running, has the 'Gold' ward for school games.
Soccer Coaching 2000 provide football coaching or Multi Sports coaching for all pupils. 'Sportforschools' coaching provide a weekly Olympic Club covering a variety of seasonal olympic style games.
Years 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 and 6 who have not yet gained the ability to swim 25 metres. 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.
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.
