Sport and PE
Following the 2012 Olympics, schools across Britain are being provided with funding in order to improve the health and wellbeing of all pupils through sport and exercise. At The Coombes, we are committed to promoting the wellbeing of our pupils, staff and school community. By using this extra funding strategically, broadly and in a sustainable way we hope to improve the health and well-being of our school community.
Through the funding our goal is to increase participation in sports, introduce alternative sporting activities, increase opportunities for competition, develop partnerships with local sporting organisations and improve the overall health and achievement of pupils through sport and exercise. This will be achieved through the purchasing of new sporting equipment, introduction of new activities, working collaboratively with local primary and secondary schools, funding sporting opportunities for pupil, including pupils eligible for free school meals and buying in various sports coaches to deliver clubs and training for staff in order to raise the quality of PE teaching.
