We are delighted to announce that we, Binley Woods Primary School, have achieved the School Games Mark Award for the 2016/17 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our sporting achievements this year include: Competing in a netball tournament, taking a cross country team to 3 events and reaching the final, taking athletes from Key Stage 2 to a local competition.
With a total of over 70 young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to: Coventry Sports Foundation staff, extra curricular clubs like Hot Shots basketball and support from the School Sports Partnership at Harris School.
We look forward to applying once again in 2018!
Binley Woods represented at local Athletics Competition
Well done to all of the children from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 that took part in the local athletics competition in Rugby. Events included running, throwing, high jump and long jump. Everyone represented the school well and a child from Year 4, 5 and 6 all won medals!
When the government bid for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games they did it in part so that its legacy would inspire young people to play more sport.
The PE and Sport Grant is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
At Binley Woods Primary School we invest this money in a variety of ways to support increased participation of children in sporting activities, to engage them in the pleasures of physical exercise and to develop the quality of the provision we offer. Our report demonstrates how this funding has been spent and the impact it has had. This is updated at the end of each academic year.
