Sports Grant & Swimming Competency
Through targeted use of the sports grant we aim to encourage all children to take part in physical activity. Since we have invested this money the impact has been great:
Participation in physical activity and sports has increased.The school now offers a wide range of after school sports clubs that include; gymnastics, dance, multi sports, football, hockey, badminton as well as lunchtime football.
Children have developed their values and attitudes alongside physical skills and fitness and this is being developed further through competitive games.
Children have been able to access different sports and activities, such as bike ability that they hadn’t had the chance to do before .
Children have developed a high level of confidence, cooperation, enthusiasm and determination as well as a competitive edge.
Children are developing their own leadership potential and responsibility as sports leaders.
Additional resources have been purchased and will continue to be so lessons are supported as well as after school activities.
There has been access to some sports children have never experienced before such as Yoga and Taekwondo.
Children at Wolvey C of E Primary attend swimming lessons within Years 3 and 4 at Bedworth Pool. This is a weekly session for the whole academic year. Our mission is that, by the end of Year 4, all children can swim 25 metres.
In Year 6, those children that are new to school or the minority of children that did not acheive the target at the end of Year 4, will have top up session in the summer term.
At Wolvey, we are 100% committed to all our children learning this key life skill and have adapted our curriculum so we still meet all our statutory requirements.
