Statement of Sustainability.

The Primary Sports Grant is used at Bridgetown to encourage all pupils to take up sport and regular physical activity in order for them to learn new skills, have fun but most importantly to see keeping fit and healthy as an important part of their long term lifestyle. We are seeking new opportunities in order to encourage non-participants to try and take up activities that will improve their health and long term lifestyle.

Lunchtime play has been enhanced by our dedicated Sports Leader who provides a range of activities throughout the year which not only promotes day to day fitness but also encourages pupils to try new sports which they then go on to take up at afterschool clubs. At present 59% of the general school population takes part in afterschool clubs and compared to 57% of our pupil premium pupils.

We use some of the grant to invest in equipment to allow more children to take up competitive recreational sport. An example of this is to provide two new netball hoops in order for extracurricular club provision to be extended, increasing membership of the group this year from 15 to 46 pupils which now includes year three and four pupils. Participation in team sports from an early age often continues throughout an individual’s lifetime.

The school will continue to promote healthy free time through contributing some of the grant to a new all weather fit trail an Multi Use Games area so that physical activity is not only promoted through sport but also play.
