The school is provided with money each year to improve the provision for the children within PE and Physical Literacy.
This money allows us to provide additional PE activities for the children, new resources, training for staff and funding for access to competitive sports.

In 2018 - 2019 we have used it for funding additional coaching, across the school, in Tag Rugby, Cricket, Nordic Walking and Tennis sessions. The Nordic Walking has been very successful and a competition was set up with Sutton Benger Primary School. The children were interviewed by BBC Wiltshire Radio and their short video explaining Nordic Walking can be seen here.
In 2019 we used some funding to provide four outdoor sets of fitness equipment and new play surface, to encourage physical activity at playtimes. These are in constant use!

The school also has i-can Sports Coaching to help support staff in curriculum lessons and they run a range of activities during the year, which involve multi sports skills.
Every class from Year 1 upwards goes swimming for four terms at Cirencester Leisure Centre. This has allowed the school to enter the Mid Wilts Swimming Competition where we have been successful in individual races.
In 2019 - 2020 we plan to evaluate the effectiveness of these additional physical activities and provide the same or different resources in order to increase the provision and progress of the children.
