Sports Premium Funding at Avanti Meadows
At Avanti Meadows Physical Education and Sporting play is very important for all pupils and at least two-hour sessions per week are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum. We believe that physical activity and sport contribute to the holistic development of children and through participation in sport and physical education, children learn more about themselves and develop lifelong values such as: teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others. There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth, and development but also on their academic ability. Sport and activity also provide a healthy environment for children to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and with losing.
Competition is an important part of school life. Children are introduced to competition within different areas of the curriculum and also through day to day experiences at the school. All children will have the opportunity to compete in-school competitions throughout the year.
Our sporting teams will also be scheduled to play other schools in various matches throughout the year and enter various borough competitions.
