The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.
The purpose of this funding is to improve the provision of PE and sport in schools. The school have the freedom to choose how they spend the money allocated to them.
Within PE lessons, pupils develop and showcase their skills in a wide range of sports including Football, Cricket, Hockey, Dodge Ball, Dance, Gymnastics, Swimming and Athletics. Through the selection of logically developed tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their ability, will enjoy success and be motivated further to develop their individual potential.
We subscribe to the NWPSSP, which enables us to have access to and compete in a wide range of games competitions. Inter school tournaments provide our children with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports and represent our school proudly. This means that whilst they are at Racemeadow, every child is provided with the opportunity to represent their school and feel part of a team, helping to develop other personal and social skills and attitudes.
After School Clubs
Every year group has access to a variety of sports clubs they can choose to participate in after school. Alongside school staff, outside sports coaches are brought in to create more opportunities for our children. The wide range of sports offered ensures that there is an option for everyone, no matter their ability or experience in sports.
