Sports Funding

  At Argyle, we are committed to improving the health and fitness of every child.  As well as providing a stimulating Physical Education curriculum (in which every child receives teaching from a specialist sports coach) we strive to provide extra-curricular sports clubs for every child.  We believe that varied PE opportunities provide a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Evaluation of Sports Funding 2016-17

The Primary School Sports Funding paid for the academic year 2016 - 17 enabled us to:

  • Employ specialist PE coaches to run and improve our after school clubs provision. The clubs allow children to improve their fitness levels as well as individual skills.
  • Provide a ‘Stay Fit Club’ during school time for children who are reluctant to take part in sports or perhaps need encouragement to adopt a healthier lifestyle. (This project was aimed at Years 4, 5 and 6.)
  • Fund Teaching Assistants to accompany, supervise and coach children for after-school sports competitions
  • Fund our annual subscription to the Camden Schools Sports Association
