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.
Sports Update 2019-20
Last year, we enjoyed participating in a range of sporting experiences and competitions, including participating in the 'virtual events' held by the Wyre Forest Sports Partnership. We also focused on becoming more physically active as well as relaunching our school houses - we now have 'Murray, Ennis, Simmonds and Redgrave'.
Sporting Update 2018-19
Our sports clubs offered this year included: tag rugby, rounders, football, athletics, multi-skills, netball, zumba, street dance and gymnastics. We again established Change4Life Breakfast and After School clubs as well as setting everybody the 'personal challenge' to improve their fitness levels through circuit training sessions. We've also took some of our children to see Kidderminster Harriers play a home match against United of Manchester, Worcester Wolves basketball team compete against London Lions and Worcester netball team play one of their league matches.
We have welcomed many sports coaches and local clubs into school and our coaching opportunities have included: Tag Rugby, Basketball, Golf, Football, Dance and Hockey.
Our Year 5/6 netball team won the Wyre Forest District Netball league without losing a match!
Girls' Football Tournament
Congratulations to our girls football team who competed against 11 other Worcestershire schools in a tournament organised by Kidderminster Harriers. They played in a mini league and then competed in the semi-final, proceeding to the final. It was a close match but Comberton came out on top and will now proceed to the south west regional finals in oxford in February. Well done!
South West Regional Finals - the girls traveled to Oxford on Monday 11th February and competed against teams from Bath, Torquay and Oxford. They played brilliantly but unfortunately didn't win this tournament. A great achievement though!
