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, in consultation with governors and trustees, always look 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.
A fabulous sunny day had by all with a morning filled with Field events where the children got to participate in all the activities available to them which was followed up by a family picnic on the field before the afternoon of track events. Tennyson took the victory at the end, for the second year running.
Well done to everyone who took part and to the parents who came along to share the day with us making it extra special for the children.
