Year 4 created a warm-up and delivered it to the younger years.  They showed good knowledge about the need for warming up before physical activity, demonstrating a skill for life as well as proving to be good sporting role models for our younger children.

 

Possible plans for the future… 

We would like to raise the profile of National Sport, as the impact the Olympic Games had on our school was huge and we would very much like to do something similar again. We would also like to develop the strong community links we have in other areas, across to include PE.  A possible way is utilising our village Golf Club and developing a link there.  This could also have an impact on the difficult task of increasing competition within a small school and would also raise the profile of National Sport with the upcoming US Open.  We also hope to develop new elements to lunchtime play so there is always a structured sporting activity for the children to participate in as well as the usual equipment and use of the field and climbing equipment.

To ensure that all children can access the Bikeability courses they will be greatly  subsidised (free to Pupil Premium pupils).

During the summer term we hope to link with some of our pyramid schools to offer some inter school competition.

The school swimming pool will face closure if enough volunteers do not come forward for training. With increased responsibility of a named person who is in charge of chemical testing and health and safety issues with a certificate to verify courses attended the position will need to carry remuneration. If this is successful then the school could look to offer the facility to neighboring schools.

All in all exciting times to come for Sturminster Marshall First School.
