At the beginning of the swimming sessions 4 out of the 14 pupils were classed as non-swimmers and were unable to swim unaided. At the end of the 6 weeks 85% of the boys attending the full 6 week course were able to swim at least one width unaided and 79% of the boys were able to swim a length.
All the boys within the school have represented the school at a sports partnership event and inter school competition. Impacting hugely on their social development.
All boys from year 7 and 8 accessed professional golf coaching. The Year 8 group had previously accessed the coaching the previous year and thoroughly enjoyed the lessons again building on their skills learned. For 7 out of the 9 Year 7 pupils this was a new activity and all said they would like to play the sport again.
The funds of £5273 that have been carried forward from the previous 3 year’s sports grants have been used to redevelop the school athletics facilities. All 54 pupils from Key stage 2, 3 and 4 have benefitted from the new athletics facilities which have been used for both long jump and triple jump. The runway has also been used as a solid surface to perform the shot put and javelin. As a result, all boys have made progress by improving their techniques for each discipline and distances recorded.
