School Sports’ Funding

School Sports’ Funding

 

Norbreck Primary Academy offers to all of the children, a range of sport and PE activities which include gymnastics, football, netball, athletics, cricket, ball skill training, dance and for children in Y4 and Y5, swimming.

A range of sporting extra-curricular activities are also on offer to the children such as football, netball, cricket, athletics, and tennis.

Children also take part in competitive events against other schools in the local and wider area including football, netball, tennis, athletics and swimming.

In addition to this the school has been awarded the Schools Sports’ Funding as follows.

For the academic year 2016-17 Norbreck Primary Academy was awarded £10,540 to be spent on School Sports and will receive the same amount for the academic year 2017-18.

The funding is spent on increasing opportunities for all children to develop a love of sport.

This ambition has been achieved by increasing the amount of time children spend on PE and Sporting Activities, an increase to the amount of sports on offer and the skills training they receive.

To achieve these ambitions, we contract with Blackpool Football Community Trust who provide us with six week blocks of extensive coaching at least two terms per year for each year group.

All children from all Key Stages therefore benefit from high level coaching in a range of sports and skills.

The impact of this is that children have been and will continue to be exposed to and up-skilled in their understanding of healthy living, of different sports and of different activities:
