Sports Funding & Swimming Provision
We take PE and sport very seriously at Widney and are extremely proud to have achieved the Gold School Games Award in July 2018.
Over the past few years, we have successfully used the Sports Premium grant to encourage more of our children than ever before to participate in sport and physical activity. In 2017-18, all our teachers participated in CPD training to enhance their subject knowledge and curriculum delivery in a range of sports and we improved both the quantity and choice of extra-curricular activities that is on offer. For the first time ever, the school entered the Solihull borough netball league and achieved a superb second place – only losing one game. A great achievement considering most of the team had never played before!
We have also signed up for the golden mile this year which is a measurable, physical activity that is also fun and challenging.

In addition, we have developed physical activity both within the curriculum and during break times. Play leaders encourage their peers to become more active using the ‘Personal Best’ challenges, lunchtime supervisors are supporting parachute activities and small sided games and teachers are seeking new and exciting ways to make the classrooms more energetic.
