SPORTING PROVISION

 

SPORTS FUNDING

Every school receives a sports grant as part of the Olympic legacy from London 2012.

We received a grant of £9,175 for this school year and have commissioned work from PE Partner (formerly TSC), along with our Aspire Partnership schools to deliver coaching in school.

 

Our report on the impact of the sports funding for 2015/16, including our plan for development in 2016/17 is found below;

ASSESSING PROGRESS AND ATTAINMENT

 PE Partner use a Spiral Curriculum approach to education, that introduces key concepts to students at a young age and covers these repeatedly, with increasing degrees of complexity. For more information about this see the pdf. link below.

LEEDS UNITED FOUNDATION

We are proud to be working alongside Premier League Primary Stars. This year (17/18) we will be working closely with coaches to plan and deliver fun and engaging PE activities to help pupils develop their skills in everything from balance and coordination to athletics and throwing skills. In addition to this, challenging topics such as resilience, diversity and self-esteem, will be brought to life by personal insights from children and top figures of the sporting world.

We were lucky enough to be visited by Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock, who kindly answered all of our questions about his inspirations, work ethic and hobbies outside of football.

SCHOOL GAMES MARK

We are incredibly proud to be awarded a gold School Games Award for the second consecutive year. A huge part of winning these awards is due to our level of participation in physical activity. In addition to the two hours of PE each week, and a weekly mile run, we also take part in competitions both in and outside of school. This is something we are very proud of!

For the past two years, as part of a whole school effort, each class has taken part in a weekly 1 mile run.

The benefits resulting from this have been fantastic! Not only has it been evident that children have been getting fitter, and therefore healthier, but it is also clear that they are becoming more confident, with children applying their new found determination to their work ethic in the classroom. We are keen to continue running at least once a week and ask you to please ensure that your child has appropriate footwear in school so that they are able to take part.

Asquith vs Westerton

Chloe WETHERILL (wetherillc) on: Sports at Asquith

Our first league game of the season resulted in a 2-0 win for Westerton. Our newly-formed team performed respectably at Woodkirk Academy, but it's back to the drawing board now, ready in preparation for next week's match.
