Sport Funding

Broad Hinton Church of England School believe that sporting opportunities for all children are essential to their education, their well-being and whole child development.  Thus our sporting grant from the Department of Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport is spent wisely and to benefit all in a variety of ways.  These include:

  • employing specialist PE coaches for weekly PE sessions with two classes to develop the sporting skills of children and teaching and learning skills of the teachers
  • opportunities for community coaches from a variety of local sports clubs to work alongside the teacher and children to widen participation and introduce new sports to the children
  • enhancement of PE resources for lessons, playground resources and outdoor learning areas
  • subsized activities for children throughout the school and for vulnerable families

The impact of these activities include the following in year 2016/17:  further details are seen in our PE Grant Statement 2017/8 below.
