'Better movers make better thinkers. Better movers make better learners.'
Children receive a minimum of two hours curriculum provision per week. The curriculum sessions are taken by class teachers; this ensures quality of delivery with a range of sporting opportunities delivered throughout the year in all year groups.
We have a wide range of after school sports clubs for the children. Please see the clubs section of the website for more information: https://www.bottesfordinfants.co.uk/clubs/.
We are committed to improving PE and school sport for our children. We are a proud member of the Get Ahead Partnership and work closely with them to improve every child's experience of PE (curriculum), to increase opportunities for competition against selves and others, increase physical activity for all young people and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Loz is our Physical Activity Mentor and is in school every Friday, helping us to be the healthiest, happiest school we can be. Loz works with groups of children throughout the afternoon, including our Sports Leaders - please see https://www.bottesfordinfants.co.uk/sports-leaders/ for more information.
PE and Sport Premium
We are very proud of how fit and healthy our children are, as they already have so many opportunities at our school to take part in daily physical activity and learn about healthy lifestyles. We aim to make our provision even better using the School Sports Premium. Please see the Sports Premium section of the website for more information: https://www.bottesfordinfants.co.uk/sports-premium/.
Our PESSPA offer during academic year 2020-2021 was impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We set ourselves a mission during the summer term: to use PESSPA as a tool to provide our children with joyous, memorable experiences and moments. We worked with the Get Ahead Partnership to run whole school events including a Colour Run, Silent Disco, Olympic Day and EURO football day. We also celebrated National School Sports Week by holding a Sports Day in our class bubbles.
Some feedback from our families Summer term 2021:
'The wide range of sporting activities has also been a brilliant feature of this term. Events such as the colour run, sports day, the EURO football day and the mini Olympics day have meant so much to J. It was wonderful to see his excitement and the photos on Tapestry, and to hear all about them at home.'
'My son had THE BEST time doing this. Thank-you for making moving fun.'
'He hasn't stopped talking about the silent disco since he got home this afternoon, he burst through the door and told me he'd had the best day ever!'
On 27th March 2019 we held our first #bottesfordcolourrun with Get Ahead; a sponsored community event with Bottesford Junior School and our families. The event was hugely successful, and very colourful!
