PE and Sports Grant 2016 / 2017
Ridgeway School has been allocated £6750 for the PE and Sports Grant. The grant is paid by the government to fund improvements in the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The grant has been spent at Ridgeway School on providing two qualified sports coaches to take PE throughout the school and on the provision of new outdoor sports equipment.
The provision of the sports coaches has provided expert input into the PE curriculum allowing the children to develop their skills and experience a wider range of sports opportunities.
The outdoor sports equipment which includes a new football goal, basketball and netball hoops has encouraged the children to take part in ball sports and to play co-operative and team games. A range of sensory play equipment has been purchased to support the outdoor play of our pupils with complex needs.
The provision of the Grant has added to our pupils enjoyment of PE and outdoor play and has contributed towards developing a healthy lifestyle.
