How it makes a difference

Since September 2013 the specialist Physical Education staff from Tollbar Academy have been providing a range of lessons to not only cover the Primary Physical Education curriculum but to extend it.

In addition to this, extra-curricular provision has been made available for all years through a variety of sports which in turn prepare pupils for the sports competitions put on by the North East Lincolnshire School Sports Partnership.

An increasing number of pupils have taken part in our Sports Leadership programme, enhancing their confidence, improving their general skills and consequently supporting younger pupils.

Since September 2013, pupils have taken up the opportunity further to improve their sports skills and this has led to an improvement in the overall standard of sporting ability across the age groups.

There have been increased opportunities for our pupils with talents in sport to train and compete with pupils with similar skills. We have developed the pupils' understanding of the importance of keeping fit and healthy and ways of improving their health and fitness. This is having an impact on their motivation to learn.

Last year, in Year 6 alone, over 70% of the year group represented Reynolds Academy in one or more sports. They competed in boys and girls football; dancing; indoor and outdoor athletics; badminton; dodgeball; tag rugby; cross-country; orienteering and cricket. Reynolds Academy also won its first external trophy – we are the SEN New Age Kurling champions of North East Lincolnshire.
