PE and Sports Premium
We have invested in fantastic sporting facilities at Lower Halstow and employ specialist sports coaches to provide additional opportunities for our pupils, alongside our well-trained staff. We also work with a range of local sports clubs to offer taster sessions in sports such as hockey, rugby and cricket and the opportunity to join local teams. All pupils are given the opportunity to take part in competitive sport during their time with us should they wish, which includes friendly local football matches. However, selection for our regular football league team is through attendance at football club and is skills based.
All pupils in Year 5 attend swimming lessons at a local pool and pupils in year 6 who have not reached the required standard are provided with additional lessons. Being close to water, we prioritise self-rescue as a key skill.
We have used our sports premium to develop PE and promote an active lifestyle across the school. This extends to our extra-curricular clubs. Our running track gets daily use and we host 'wake and shake' each morning before school in the hall rotated through classes.
