How we have used the money
‘Sports Days’ at Oakwood Youth Challenge – summer 2015 and summer 2016 – £900
Water Sports – 6 week course of water sports activities at Wokingham Waterside Centre – summer 2015 – £960
Outdoor physical challenges – 4 week course at Oakwood Youth Challenge – autumn 2015 – £560
How we plan to use the money for 2017/18
During the academic year we plan to build on the successes achieved at the Oakwood Youth Challenge, and expand our provision to cover watersports at Dinton Pastures and ice skating at the John Nike center.
Furthermore, we will develop our teachers’ skillsets by having external PE tutors on site to run PE sessions. Dependent upon the pupil, as and when it is safe to do so, we will also attend Carnival Swimming Pool with the intention of implementing the Water Safety training and achieving confident swimming to a minimum of 25m.
Where we expect to see improvement
A broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils, for example attendance at the local Golf driving range
To enhance the profile of PE and sport across the school to enrich the pupil experience and lead to whole-school improvement
To see increased participation in competitive sport and physical activities.
