At West Leigh Junior School, we provide a high quality P.E. and sport provision throughout the curriculum and the extra-curricular actives. We aim for all children to become physically confident and develop an understanding of how to live a healthy and active lifestyle. Children participate in a range of inter and intra school competitions with the British Values and Olympic Values embedded within these.
We use the Sports Premium money, as portrayed in the document below, wisely to ensure that every child benefits and have the opportunities stated above.
Part of this funding allows us to subscribe to support from the Southend School Sports Partnership. This includes allowing our staff and students to benefit from additional festivals and sports competitions, access to a range of CPD and training opportunities and opportunities for staff to meet with other schools to discuss the best practice in the area. This is especially important to ensure the funding has a lasting impact on up-skilling our teachers in our schools.
At West Leigh Junior School, each child is taught a half hour swimming lesson once a week throughout term time.
Clubs and Competitions
We are committed to ensuring that as many children as possible are participating in extra-curricular sporting activities and competitions. To improve the amount of children participating in competitions we are holding a variety of festivals, across the academy and local area, including football.
