Bibury Sport

We are very pleased that Bibury School achieved the School Games Silver Award for its involvement in sport in ’17-’18.  This is an amazing achievement for a small school.  The award reflects the diversity of activities we were involved in, for example Panathlon, Archery and Forest Schools as well as the more traditional sports.  It is also an acknowledgement of the increased participation in sport: we had a staggering 40% of KS2 take part in the Farmor’s Cross Country event.

 

Applying for the award also involved an audit of our PE provision and our targets for this year include increasing physical activity across the whole week and further involvement in competitive sport.  To this end, PE lessons will now be on two days and we also hope to introduce some form of informal activity on others days.

 

Mrs Dearsley will be starting a Netball Club on Monday after school if there is sufficient demand.  Also Mr Peters will be working with Mrs Dearsley to match PE planning more closely with the timing of local competitions so children are better prepared.

 

We also hope to use some of our Sports Premium money to offer taster sessions for more unusual sports and to make closer link with local sports clubs.  Dance is also part of PE and again we intend to arrange dance workshops as we did last year.

 

Please ask if you have any questions, or let us know if you have any suggestions for sports we can try.

 

Finally, as a rural school we depend on the support of parents for transport to events and we thank you in advance for your help and encouragement.
