Sports Provision 2023/24
We aim to provide as high a standard of teaching, coaching and competition as we can for the children, whatever their ability or motivation to take part. We believe that your child’s wellbeing relies on meeting all their needs with sport and PE one factor alongside their health, social skills and academic progress.
We are a member of the Bolsover District Active School Network that provides competitive sport opportunities as well as high quality coaching and training opportunities for school staff including lunchtime supervisors.
This year, we have employed a specialist sports coach, Gemma, who is working alongside teachers to develop their skills in the teaching of fundamentals, athletics and games. We are also focussing on developing the teaching of gymnastics within school.
We provide lunchtime sports coaching through the North East Derbyshire County Council and our current coach, Zoe, works with children from Y1 through to Y6 on a variety of sports and physical activities four days a week. This includes running intra-school (in school) competitions, as well as preparing the children for inter-school (out of school) competitions. Each class (from Y2-Y6) also has an allocated time slot for football in the sports hall supervised by a member of staff.
The school offers a variety of extra-curricular clubs including sport.
Some of these take place during lunchtime and others take place after school. Current clubs can be found on the school Newsletters or by contacting school. Throughout the year, some of the clubs we run include football, tag rugby, table tennis, netball, hockey, cricket and athletics. Outside providers also support a tennis club during the year.
We have excellent facilities including a modern Sports Hall, a large school field and markings for netball on our playground. The Sports Hall hosts local clubs including Taekwondo Martial Arts. We also have a large fixed play equipment area to develop balance and climbing.
School Sports Resources
We have extensive resources for PE and sport including Tag Rugby, UniHoc, Short Tennis, Football, Netball, Basketball, Kwik Cricket, Badminton, Table Tennis and a very wide range of smaller equipment for sports and PE.
