How are we enhancing provision further?

At Sparsholt we have enhanced our provision further by introducing specific school sports earlier. Our Year 1 children now have access to a range of after-school activities and we have purchased the correct equipment to enable younger children to play lacrosse.

We aim for children to build their lacrosse skills progressively from a young age, becoming talented team players. We have also secured further specialist coaching time to provide experienced instruction for the younger pupils.

We also continue to strengthen the skills of our Year 5 and 6 Sports Leaders, providing opportunities for them to run sports clubs, support PE lessons and organise whole school events (under the supervision of the class teacher). We have also implemented a introductory Sports Leadership Programme for Year 4 children (Sports Advocate).

Sparsholt have also signed up to the Golden Mile.  The Golden Mile is a safe, simple and measurable health & physical activity initiative accessible to all our children regardless of ability.  We aim to inspire and encourage the children with a focus on fun, rewarding personal achievement, as well as raising money and healthy competition.
