We were absolutely thrilled to be awarded the National Outstanding SEND School Award at the recent Youth sport Trust Awards evening. This award recognised our commitment to PE and School Sport and how we use it to achieve our 3 main goals of Belief, Belonging and butterflies for all our children. We believe this award is not only for Abbey School but for all our amazing partner schools who work closely with us to promote inclusion and the best sporting and life opportunities possible for our children. We aspire for all our children to be visible and valued members of the community and PE and sport are key drivers for this
Throughout the year we offer a range of different and varied activities for pupils to take part in. The curriculum is tailored to each class and ensure to check the PE twitter page to keep up to date with weekly PE lessons.
We have had a fabulous term and half in PE and Sport across the whole school. Lower school have been able to focus on their agility, balance and coordination and will continue to explore this through new games and challenges. L4 and L5 will continue to go swimming to meet national curriculum targets of being able to swim 25m.
Upper school will be continuing their journey on challenging themselves and improving their fitness. Selected classes are taking part in the Youth Sport Award this year and after a fantastic Step into Sport conference in December 2018, more and more events are in place for pupils to take part in.
Each class takes part in the daily mile challenge to enable pupils to feel refreshed and ready to learn. After school clubs are now in full flow on a Tuesday.
We are looking forward to our whole school taking part in a Level2 competition at the Nexus Mat Play Unified Games in May.
Sport events will take part throughout the year pupils to take part in, letters and other information will be sent in advance and remember to keep up to date with all the latest PE and Sport news through our twitter feed.
