Primary Sports Grant

Riverside school, like many other primary schools, were awarded a Primary Sports Grant over the past two years. This is to help us encourage children's participation in games and fitness.


To help improve the physical education at Riverside so far we have invested in specialist outdoor sports teachers/coaches and purchased equipment and paid for children or classes to partake in physical activities off site. We hope that this will improve the pupils attainment, especially for those receiving Pupil Premium funding.


So far with the help of our grant we have been able to continue to offer our children access to a qualified Yoga teacher twice a week and pay for specialist coaches for  Athletics, Fundamental PE skills, Football and Horse-riding as well as sessions at soft play for our pupils with more complex needs.


In the year ahead we will provide the children with a more diverse sports curriculum by using our grant to buy other professional coaches, for example Dance.


Finally, we are going to improve on the variety of bikes available to our children and increase their participation in our ‘keeping healthy’ ethos.
