Impact of Funding

    • We have noticed that the Premier sports club was not as popular as we would have hoped.

    • New footballs have been provided for the Football club and new equipment will be ordered to support the teaching of clubs and activities in the Summer term and to provide a variety of sports for next year.
    • Next year Mr North is only able to teach two mornings a week so we will need to outsource our sports clubs from other providers.
    • Our weekly practice of the Golden Kilometre has increased the fitness of the children so that they could run many laps for the Race for Life event that every child took part in.
