DETERMINATION helps us take decisions while focusing on the goals. Try, from today, to be positive even through hard times. Get inspired by the Paralympic athletes: believe in your potential, always do your best, and get all the good results that this simple exercise will bring to your life.
Sporting opportunities are actively encouraged and developed at Comberton and our children participate in weekly lessons, coaching sessions, after school clubs and a range of competitions. Our school PE and sport development priorities are based on our school context and identified pupil need. These include:
School Sport Funding:
"The government provides funding of £320 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Please look at the attached documents that explain how much funding we have received, how we are spending it and what impact it is having on our school. This is a working document, so will be changing throughout the year.
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the School Games Platinum Award. This award recognises the sporting opportunities provided by the school through: after school clubs; house and inter-school competitions; activities provided at break and lunchtimes as well as offering staff training.
We have already organised our sporting calendar for this year and have a range of opportunities available.
