Class 2 PE lesson on apparatus in the hall with Damien Dimmick, TSSP coach and inter-school Tri-Golf competition at Greenhaugh
At Greenhaugh Primary School we are committed to encouraging children to follow an active and healthy lifestyle. We believe that skills learnt through Sports and PE, including competitive and team sports, help to teach qualities such as resilience and determination that support children throughout their lives. We are proud to have been awarded a School Games Gold Award for the last four years in recognition of this commitment. Our PE and Sport curriculum includes football, cricket, tennis, hockey, gymnastics, tag rugby, dance, multiskills and Tri Golf, with competitions held at an inter-schools level for many of these sports. We also provide whole school swimming lessons at the Wentworth Swimming Pool, Hexham, for ten weeks during the summer term. All schools are allocated additional funding known as Sports Premium funding to improve provision for P.E. and sport. The funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on the provision of P.E. and sport but schools are free to choose how to spend it. As part of our provision of high quality PE and Sport we use some of our sports premium funding to buy into the Tynedale School Sports Partnership (TSSP). This is in addition to the excellent PE and Sport delivery already taking place in school and gives each class an additional hour of PE and Sport each week as well as a 30 minute lunchtime PE Club.
