Sport is very important at Batchley First. It is something we are highly successful at.
We have achieved Silver School Games Mark, and are working towards the Gold Award.
We are current champions in the Redditch First School Hockey, Cricket and Basketball tournaments.
We represented Redditch at Cricket in the Worcestershire School Games in June 2015.
We represented Redditch at Hockey at the Worcestershire Winter School Games in March 2016
We came 3rd at Redditch Swimming Gala.
We were Pyramid Cross Champions for 4 years between 2008 and 2012 and runners up ever since!
We achieve this through quality PE teaching and a culture of high expectations around individual and team performance in PE lessons and the variety of clubs we offer. This is offered during curriculum and non curriculum sessions. Many of these are through local clubs, for example, Bromsgrove Gymnastic Club, Worcestershire Cricket Club, HDA Tennis Club and Aston Villa Football Club. These are amongst a few of the clubs that Batchley First School are associated with.
We have audited the needs of teachers to deliver high quality engaging PE provision. As a result, staff have had Dance training from NDTA (National Dance Teachers Association) chair person. We have also delivered in-house training from staff who took Sport Leader training funded from previous years Sports Funding.
Please see attached plan for how we have allocated Sports Funding for this year.
