We give the children the opportunity to experience a wide range of curriculum P.E. and extra curricular clubs right across the school.
We begin each day with our 'Wake up, shake up!' routine, Morning Run or HIIT session at 9 o'clock and have daily Gentle Touch, yoga or mindfulness sessions after lunch. In P.E. lessons, the children experience dodgeball, indoor curling, volleyball and kwik cricket in addition to more traditional sports like tag rugby, football, tennis and hockey. All children at Westmeads also have the opportunity to participate in swimming lessons at the end of Year 1 and again at the beginning of Year 2. Our playground trail area encourages the children to balance, climb and co-ordinate their bodies.
Have a look at our 'Clubs' section for more information on the activities available to children. We are very proud of the range of activities we have on offer.
What is the Sports Grant?
The Sports Grant is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Since the success of the 2012 London games, the government has pledged to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the games and to develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age. Therefore, £300m has been specifically set aside to improve the provision of Primary School PE and School Sport.
How much do we have to spend?
£17,190 for this year.
Who will monitor this?
When Ofsted visit, they will ask the question "How well the school uses its Sports Grant to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances they are capable of." They will look carefully at how we spend the funding and the impact it is having.
