School Update – Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Following the Government’s most recent Covid-19 update on Sunday 10th May it is important to note that there are no immediate changes in the education or child care provision made by schools.

Therefore, schools will continue to provide distance learning support for students and child care for Key Workers who have provided 24 hours notice of their intention to use the child care facility. 

 

As you will be aware, the government has announced the expectation that Primary schools will begin a phased transition to school based learning from 1st June for Years R, 1 and 6.

We are working closely with the Local Authorities and the Department For Education to ensure the most effective and safe return to school for students and staff. We will be in contact you shortly to update you on our plans.

 

Please continue to check your mailboxes and this website for updates.


Thank you for your continued support.

Sports Funding

Sports Funding

All primary schools in England are provided with an amount of money which must be spent on Sport in school during the academic year. Whilst the money itself is ‘ring fenced’, schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The provision of high quality sporting experiences can be secured through two main pathways:

  1. Opportunities for children directly
  2. Opportunities for children indirectly through development and training of staff

In addition to this however, we also buy into a P.E. support package from the Howard School sports partnership. This allows us to participate in a range of sporting competitions and festivals, and access the partnership’s training courses, providing opportunities for the training of staff.
