We were delighted that the MP Mims Davis, the current Minister for Sport, was able to officially open our Healthy Choices Track. She talked to the children in our School Council about the importance of aiming for at least an hour a day of physical exercise, and how the track could be used to support this goal.
The track has been paid for using the allocated Sports Premium money for 2018/19. We are planning to make use of the allocation for 19/20 to add some outdoor gym equipment for the children to use.
The track has been called the Healthy Choices Track to fit in with our school aim of Informed Health. We want to encourage the children to want to exercise, and to see exercise as part of their healthy life choices.
We are so proud to be able to say that the school achieved the Gold School Games Award this year! This is in recognition of the sporting opportunities and participation in events that our children have had over the school year.
For the past two years we have achieved the Silver Award, we were aiming for Gold this year and achieved that target! Special thanks to Miss Leonard who has arranged a lot of the events over the year. This could not have been achieved without a whole school commitment to active PE - this includes staff who have given up their time to run clubs and take children to competitions, the children who have given up time to attend clubs and practise for competitions, and parents who have supported with travel to the various different events.
