Sport is very important at Batchley First. It is something we are highly successful at.
We have achieved Gold School Games Mark for the last three years, and are working towards the Platinum Award.
We are current champions in the Redditch First School Tennis and Cricket tournaments.
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.
