Yattendon CE Primary School uses the statutory funding for sport in the following ways:
Affiliation to the West Berkshire Schools Sports Partnership
This has benefitted the school in a number of ways: training for staff is excellent; badminton, basketball and gymnastics sessions provided by coaches benefit Year 2- 6 children; the school takes part in a wide range of competitions from cross-country to football, orienteering and archery. The school has held the Sainsbury School Games Silver Award for three years.
The school employs a Sports Coach, Mr Bint, on Monday and Thursday afternoons to support staff understanding of PE and games. He comes to school for lunchtimes where he runs organised games for the different Key Stages. He then extends this role to after-schools Multi-sports and a football club. The school runs Inter-house Sports competitions throughout the year and an end of year Sports Day, a very successful event including a picnic, for parents, grandparents and the wider community.
Year 3 & 4 all have access to high quality swimming coaching for 8 weeks in the Autumn Term/ This is at The Down's School.
We are affiliated with Newbury and District School's Netball Association and have had huge success participating in the Schools tournament this year. Two of our most talented girls have completed a masterclass at Marlston House to improve their skill level.
