Leaders have used sports funding well. Specialist sports coaches teach physical education, benefiting pupils but also enhancing the skills and subject knowledge of teachers. There is a wide range of extra-curricular sports clubs and many opportunities for pupils’ physical development, for example by participating in fundraising activities that make use of the fitness circuit. Pupils are keen to take up sports activities. As a result of their commitment, engagement and participation in school competitions, the school has achieved a sports award from the county council.
