This year we have developed our sports provision within school, thinking about the impact of Covid19.
Children have been offered a wider range of before and after school clubs with our Change 4 Life having a higher uptake this year then in previous years.
We have developed our active playtimes and introduced the Playmakers Award for Y5 and Y6 pupils, who will be assisting our dinner time staff, making sure that younger pupils and their peers have activities at lunchtimes to increase their daily active minutes.
We have once again been involved with Modeshift, developing active travel to and from school. We have had bikeabilty in school for UK2 pupils and Y2 enjoyed scooter training too this year. We are hoping to develop this further next year.
