Impact of funding
Our spending has already had a big impact on the children’s participation in sport. Specialist coaches have helped develop children's skills which in turn has facilitated success at local competitions. We have won the Hockey Competition and came second in the Tennis competition and represented Cockermouth in the regional (Level 2 Competitions).
Participation in school sports clubs has surged. We now have Sports Leaders from Year 6 delivering sporting activities on a daily basis to all year groups during lunch times. Furthermore, to increase participation across all year groups and children staff have delivered in school, lunch time clubs i.e. football/rugby across Key stage 2. Again, this has facilitated community links as some children have been identified and subsequently channelled to a representative at the local football club.
We have extended provision to cover SEN and or disadvantaged children through funding transport and events to increase participation and develop community links. Furthermore, close links with our nurture group help to harness sports and its importance in developing friendship, team building, resilience and enjoyment.
To increase girls participation in sport we have targeted lunch time clubs and celebrate success in sport for all children. To build community links with Cockermouth Rugby Union Football club we have a lunch time rugby club fro girls only.
As a part of our commitment to supporting the more able pupils in school we will be seeking to funding some places at the Chance Camp which takes place over the holidays. This means that those children who excel in sport are given the chance to develop their skills with a professional sports coach. We aim to relaunch this from September 2017/18.
Finally, all children across the school now participate in the 1K a day walk/run. This is an activity undertaken daily and seeks to link to the obesity strategy, increase participation, fitness and enjoyment of sport and the importance of keeping active. This initiative has been a huge success.
