With our own sports field, access to excellent local sports facilities, and a dedicated number of individuals on the school staff, our passion for sport is evident. Eaton Bray Academy offers many sports activities, not only during PE lessons but also during lunch clubs. Children in KS2 have the opportunity to also participate in inter-school tournaments. Recently children have participated in (and been very successful in) Hockey, Netball, and Tag Rugby tournaments as well as Cross Country events.
Key Stage Two Sports Day takes place in the Autumn Term
Key Stage One and Early Years Sports Day takes place in the Summer Term
A Whole School Sports Day takes place at Stockwood Park Athletics Stadium in Luton during the Summer Term
For those children that require them, swimming lessons at the local leisure centre are provided in order to ensure that children meet the National Curriculum requirements by the end of Key Stage Two. In December 2018, eighteen out of twenty-one children in Year 6 had achieved all Key Stage Two outcomes for swimming and water safety.
We are very proud of our Junior Sports Leaders who not only encourage the children during P.E. lessons and clubs but are great sporting ambassadors for the school.
Primary School P.E. and Sports Funding
What is the PE and sport premium?
The PE and Sport Premium funding is a government funding stream designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities they offer.
Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6,
Who receives the funding?
Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and Sport Premium funding. This includes maintained schools and academies, special schools and non-maintained special schools, and pupil referral units (PRUs). Nursery schools and independent schools do not receive the funding.
Using the PE and sport premium
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that the funding must be used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers, or make improvements that will benefit future pupils. For example, you can use your funding to hire qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers, or to support less active children by running or extending school clubs. Funding should not be used to cover core functions, such as teachers’ planning and preparation time, or to teach the minimum requirements of the National Curriculum.
