Sports Provision

We aim to develop agility, physical co-ordination, fitness, confidence and enjoyment through PE lessons. The school is able to use the playground, the school garden, the village hall and Church grounds for its PE sessions. In addition, especially in the summer months, athletics, rounders and sports day are enjoyed on the village recreation ground.

Children get the opportunity to go swimming at Freedom Leisure Centre, Cinderford, during the course of the year. We opt for fortnightly one-hour lessons to ensure a good period of time in the pool.

Children throughout the school have regular opportunities to engage in Forest School and the infants have Welly Walk every week.

The school is in receipt of funding from the Government as part of a National Strategy. The proposed way of spending this is outlined in the document below. This is a working document so will change during the year.

Our Swimming Teacher has assessed our eight year 6 children to see if they meet the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situation. 75% of the children met these requirements.
