What is Sports Premium Funding?
The government are providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil for years
YR1 and Y6. Therefore the total budget is £19,470.
At St. Mary Redcliffe C of E Primary we are committed to providing children with opportunities to take part in excellent physical education in school with access to high quality equipment and expert coaching. We aim to offer a diverse range of after-school activities alongside opportunities for our children to compete against others locally and nationally.
Meet our hockey team!
Our school took part in a Hockey tournament at Merchants Academy. They played several matches against other local schools. They grew as a team and developed their passing, dribbling and shooting skills.
Well done SMR!!
Skipping Man Year 3
The skipping man visited Year 3 in March and taught Year 3 some serious skipping moves! It proved to be a real test of fitness and co-ordination!
DanceFest at Ashton Park Secondary School
This week Year 2 performed dances at our Dance Festival. We watched 8 other schools perform and then it was our turn. We were a bit nervous at first but as soon as the music started we remembered our moves and had a great time. Amii and Kethura.
Over the last few weeks SMR school has participated in a local rugby tournament competing against several local schools.
Meet the team, Adelene, Edward (captain), Zaeed, Joey, Pablo, Macey, Frank, Josef, Jess and Millie were an outstanding team.
Overall we won 7 games, drew 3 and lost 2. We encouraged each other and quickly bonded as a team showing determination when faced with some tough opposition.
A big thank to parents and carers who came to support us in all weathers and the staff at the school who gave up their time to take the children along to the event.
