PE & Sports Funding

We believe in offering a vast array of sports and opportunities to cater for all of our pupils'. As well as successfully entering many competitions, we have regular visits from sports coaches and specialist teachers. This term we have a Dodgeball coach, wheelchair basketball and Karate club.

We are committed to delivering weekly Forest School for every child in the school throughout the entire year. We are on a two-year cycle for Bikeability training.

Sports offered: Cricket, cross-fit, rugby with Newcastle Falcons, cycling, football, swimming, tennis, cross-country, athletics, rounders, netball, dance, gymnastics, outward bounds (abseiling, climbing, zip-wire, canoeing), Tri-golf, hockey, volleyball, badminton and chess. 

In order to facilitate this, we have invested in the playground infrastructure, coaches, hall equipment and replenished our P.E stock equipment. 


We have successfully acheived the national standard for Year 6 swimming since the 2018 academic year. We have taken children from years 2 & 3 with booster if needed. We currently have 25% children in Year 4 who have not acheived their 25m+ with 100% pass rate in Years 5 & 6. 

Plan for 2023-2024 term:

  • Reception-water confidence
  • Year 1-water confidence and basic strokes
  • Year 2-swimming lessons
  • Year 3-swimming lessons
  • Years 4, 5 & 6 will have intensive lessons on water safety with basic strokes for booster Year 4.
