PE & Sports Grant
The Raleigh School has now been in receipt of Sports Premium funding for 3 years totaling £29,530.
We pride ourselves on being very successful at sport, participating in a wide range of activities such as: Golf, Tennis, Athletics, Cross Country, Swimming, Biathlon, Dance, Tag Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Judo and Basketball where we promote good sportsmanship alongside competition!
It is our intention this year to spend our allocation of Sports Premium money primarily on gymnastics and dance. Last year we were able to secure the services of a qualified dance instructor who was able to inspire boys and girls from years 1 to 6 with her unique dance workshops tailored to fit with the topics being taught in each year group.
So successful and popular were her lessons that we plan to employ her services again this year. Teachers are always present in the dance lessons to take notes and a copy of the lesson plans are with the school so that teachers can deliver them in future years. This has proven to be a very popular investment and made a huge difference to PE last year.
Gymnastics is taught throughout the school but this year we would like to improve the quality of our gym lessons by providing CPD to all teachers. We are proposing to buy in the expertise of a gymnastics instructor to show staff how to use our extensive gymnastics equipment to its full potential and to provide lesson plans ensuring all children are given the opportunity to develop key skills in gymnastics and build their core strength.
Newer and bigger mats are also a priority as the new cheerleading club means they are being used twice as often in the week now and the children need more safe space to move around on.
How it made a difference last year
The school spent the 2016-17 allocated Sports Premium of £9,875 in a number of ways to ultimately benefit the children at the school and to improve their participation in PE and sports, both during curricular lessons and also in attending after school activities and competitions. The school continues to be well represented at sporting activities.
