What is the Primary School Sport & PE Funding?
Each year schools are given funding to develop sport and PE provision in schools. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.
Our action plan identifies how we intend to use of allocated funding for the coming year.

Twelve children took part in a Year 2 Hockey Festival playing against other children from local schools. They demonstrated great perseverance and collaboration. We were very proud of them.
All our Y2 children learned the Key Steps routine during curriculum time demonstrating great balance, agility and coordination skills. We then hosted a Gymnastic Festival, twelve children were selected to represent our school and we invited other local schools to share their gymnastic skills. Supernova Gymnastic coaches led the Festival and the children joined in a variety of balancing, travelling and jumping activities. They represented the value of reflection by demonstrating their learning superbly and they were very respectful applauding each others' routines. Well done.
Some Y2 children had the privilege of visiting the Ageas Bowl Cricket ground to take part in a Cricket Festival with other Y2 pupils. They joined in a variety of batting, bowling and fielding activities and then competed in a mixed school Kwik Cricket game. What an amazing event!
Eight Y2 children took part in a Tennis Festival with children from local schools at Bishops Waltham Tennis Courts. We organised Active Academy Tennis coaches to lead the event. The children enjoyed playing tennis and challenged themselves to keep their score. We were so proud to see how respectful they were shaking hands with the other children after each match as well as trying to achieve their best.
Year 2 enjoyed an exciting competition of Rounders with children from other local schools. We organised for MLT coaches to lead the event. They enjoyed some fun warm up activities. Then they played in teams of 7 taking turns to bat and field each game. They collaborated well showing great team spirit. Well done!
Twenty four children had a wonderful afternoon participating in a Country Dancing Festival organised by Folk Active in the Jubilee Hall in Bishops Waltham. The children had learned six dances during their curriculum PE lessons. Then during the Ceilidh they joined in the dances whilst a live band played. They even persevered learning a new dance. At the end parents were invited to join in the Circassian Circle dance. Well done.
