We have been fortunate to secure funding for the Sport England programme over the last two years. Phase 3 finished in February 2020.
Schools involved were: All Saints, Barlby High School, Ebor Academy Filey, Manor CE Academy, George Pindar School, Graham School, Vale of York Academy and St Augustine’s.
Phase 4 ran from April 2020 to March 2021. We worked with Beverley Grammar, Goole Academy and Market Weighton School.
The funding aims to help teaching professionals to better support inactive young people and to adapt delivery to ensure that all young people have a positive experience of Physical Education (PE) and school sport. It also aims to reinforce the relevance of PE and school sport to wider school outcomes such as attendance, behaviour and achievement with school leaders, governors and parents.
Each school receives a budget to support them to work towards the objectives above, responding to the contexts and needs of their own school.
Examples of teacher training provided by Phase 3 funding include Boxercise, Yoga in Schools, Handball, Parkour, Trampolining and Pilates.

“The Sport England programme has been incredible and the benefits will hopefully ensure that our pupils become lifelong participants in sport and physical activity so they remain fit and healthy.”
