Sports at St Anne’s 2018-2019
“One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team. ”
We provide a variety of sporting opportunities at St Anne’s. We have an exciting provision of sports in the curriculum, plus our lunch time clubs and after school clubs. All of our children are taught how to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. We also participate in friendly and competitive matches with local schools and have competed within the South West Area of Schools competitions. We enjoy having professional coaches in to teach our children.
In April 2013, the government announced that £150 million would be released to fund primary school physical education and sport as part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy. Please read how we have used our Sports Premium funding to support the Sports provision within our school.
