School sport is back on the Government radar and every primary school will receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil every year until 2020 to support the delivery of and participation in sporting excellence. The school is currently in discussion with its Governors for the best way to spend this money to ensure children have access to expertly delivered, wide ranging and engaging PE lessons and extra curricular sport, competitions and festivals.
Spilsby Primary has always prided itself on it's range of extra curricular sporting clubs. In our area we have, over the years, entered a range of competitions, in a variety of sports including football, high fives, rounders, kwik cricket, volleyball, golf, table tennis, athletics, swimming, cross country, hockey and gymnastics. Over the years we have had several county gymnastics champions along with successes in football, high fives, cross country, table tennis, kwik cricket and golf.
We have arranged for JB sports to come into schools to deliver some of the PE lessons and to up-skill the teachers in a range of sports. We will be continuing this arrangement over the next year.
