Beeston Rylands receives £8,792 per year to improve provision for PE in sport within the school. This money is from the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and has been ‘ring-fenced’ which means it can only be spent on sport provision and not on any other areas in the school. At Beeston Rylands we strongly believe that if children can be engaged in sport at an early age that this engagement can last a lifetime. Sport encourages our young children to choose a healthy, athletic lifestyle and at this age we can provide the children with lots of opportunities to try a variety of sports.
We can use this money to:
Hire specialist P.E. teachers/qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching P.E.
Provide new or additional Change4Life sports clubs
Pay for professional development opportunities
Pay for cover to release teachers for development
Run sports competitions
Buy schemes of work/development modules or materials for P.E./sport
Provide places for pupils at an afterschool club and/or holiday club
Pupils receive swimming instruction in Year 4 and Year 5 and currently we have only 1 Year 6 pupil who cannot confidently swim 25 metres.
