The funding received for the financial year 2018-19 is £21,120. This has enabled us to have a full time Health Mentor in school , supporting the well-being of the children and increasing their enjoyment of sports.
Our Health Mentor, Gyles spends his days keeping the children active; during Breakfast Club the children have access to sports and games. Before school he has initiated 'Wake Up, Shake Up' sessions for children, parents and staff! At playtimes and lunch breaks Gyles supervises football and basket ball sessions. He has organised cricket and tennis coaching sessions and he also runs three after school activities a week. Gyles is currently working on promoting healthy snacks and sugar free alternatives to the children.
We provide all of our Year 4 pupils with access to swimming lessons, with the expectation that they will be able to swim 25m with a range of strokes and be able to perform a safe rescue.
The funding pays for our membership of the Haringey Sports Development Scheme and to provide additional sports and outdoor play equipment.
