At Greenfylde C of E First School we recognise the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles and high quality physical activity for our pupils.  We want to offer our pupils a breadth of experience that will encourage them to enjoy sports, develop community links and understand the importance of physical activity for a healthy life. Hopefully, if we can set the foundations then our pupils will

Sports at Greenfylde 2016-2017
Following on from our Gold School Sports Kite Mark earlier this year Greenfylde has continued its commitment to develop sports for all. We believe sport is an integral part of our holistic provision and not only supports an active lifestyle but also helps the children to develop self-esteem and self-worth. Sports are as varied as the characteristics of our pupils and for this reason we try to offer as wide a range of provision as possible from swimming to rounders, street dance and archery. We were very proud to have been shortlisted for the Community Education Awards Outstanding Sporting Provision Award this Summer which recognised our commitment for developing a love of sport for all.
Bob Brunt and Germaine Tuff have remained as a weekly presence at the school for sport. By having the coaches work alongside the classroom staff, staff skills and confidence in delivering PE has developed and in having this regular CPD (Continuing Professional Development), staff are up to date in the teaching and learning of PE for the pupils.
This year we have continued out focus on our engagement with community clubs and have seen participation by our pupils’ increase, particularly in taking part with Ilminster Cricket Club. Our inter-school competitions continue to grow and where these have now existed we have continued to run these ourselves and offer them to other local schools.
All our Year 4s have again achieved our Level 1 Young Leaders’ Award for Sports and have arranged multi-skills festivals for younger children in school and between schools in our CLP (Community Learning Partnership) as well as assisting our pre-school with their Sports Day. We have also supported our Middle Schools and Upper School by inviting their young leaders to gain experience helping at our sporting events.
We continue to use our dance and drama studio and our on-site swimming pool so that all pupils have swimming lessons. This year children were very taken with indoor Kurling which we introduced as a sport to the curriculum and we believe this has also helped our pupils appreciate how sports are inclusive for all.
Last year we wanted to maintain our provision as we felt we had reached a high standard that met the needs of our school community and we are very pleased that this has been attained. Bob Brunt has been working with groups of pupils to develop pupil voice and this has allowed the children to participate to an even greater extent in curriculum planning
Finally we were thrilled to receive our grant of £12,000 from Tesco Bags of Help to set up Family Forest School Days Work commences for this Summer 17 and we aim to hold our first session in the Autumn.
Next year we will continue to maintain our provision but still seek any further opportunities that can give more breadth of opportunity and experience for our pupils in sport.

Sports at Greenfylde 2015-2016
Following on from our Silver School Sports Kite Mark earlier this year Greenfylde has continued its commitment to develop sports for all. We believe sport is an integral part of our holistic provision and not only supports an active lifestyle but also helps the children to develop self-esteem and self-worth. Sports are as varied as the characteristics of our pupils and for this reason we try to offer as wide a range of provision as possible from swimming to rounders, street dance and archery.
Bob Brunt and Germaine Tuff have remained as a weekly presence at the school for sport. This year they have also been joined by Ali Mallett who has taught street dance. By having the coaches work alongside the classroom staff, staff skills and confidence in delivering PE has developed and in having this regular CPD (Continuing Professional Development), staff are up to date in the teaching and learning of PE for the pupils.

 

This year we had a focus on our engagement with community clubs and now have a leaflet available for families directing them to a range of local sporting facilities. We were also looking at our pupils’ engagement with Level 2 competition and have developed more opportunities for this between ourselves and Swanmead Middle School as well as wider SASP opportunities in South Somerset. As a first school we do not have the same opportunities as primary schools with Year 5 and 6 but have well compensated for this by embracing these wider geographical opportunities and creating and running our own competitions e.g. football festivals with schools from both Somerset and Dorset.
All our Year 4s have again achieved our Level 1 Young Leaders’ Award for Sports and have arranged multi-skills festivals for younger children in school as well as assisting our pre-school with their Sports Day. We have also supported our Middle School by inviting their young leaders to gain experience helping at our sporting events.
Our new dance and drama studio has this year allowed us more indoor space for sport and we continue to use our on-site swimming pool so that all pupils have swimming lessons.
Next year we want to maintain our provision as we feel we have reached a high standard that meets the needs of our school community. However we are still looking for ways to improve and hope to develop even more pupil voice for sport so that the children play a greater part in future developments. We have also put in a bid for funding to allow us to develop family forest school days to encourage our families to be active together.
