In April 2013, the Government announced funding (Sports Premium) for physical education (PE), sport and physical activity to improve provision of PE and sport provision in schools. So far, this has been an annual payment which we hope will continue.
We use the funding with the following aims:
We achieve this through providing a wide range of opportunities for our children at Greenhill across many sports, e.g. mountain-biking, kayaking, swimming, tennis, football, netball, dance, gymnastics, athletics and working alongside the Leeds Rhinos. Some of our highly talented sports stars are members of national clubs and teams!
To find out more, take a look at our sport premium report.
Swimming: in the academic year 2021- 2022, we made the decision to take all our Year 6 children to swimming lessons, as they had missed so much due to lockdowns. This year, so far 43/60 children can swim 25m or more, which is 72%. We are really proud of this result as so many of them were unable to swim this distance in September.
