The PE and Sports Grant received has enabled us to enhance the way PE is taught at our school, teaching children the importance of healthy living and how to adopt healthy attitudes to eating and exercise.

At our school, we have chosen to spend our allocation of these funds on providing Sports Coaching for each class, providing resources and training courses in PE, purchasing sports equipment, joining the Havering sports collective, training and support in order to develop collaborative skills, resulting in our pupils experiencing an extended range of sports and games and a variety of sports clubs.

Our pupils have a wider range of opportunity to represent our school in various tournaments and competitions in a wider range of sports.
