Here at Cromer Road School we are extremely proud to have achieved the
Gold Sports Mark (2014/15 and 2015/16)
This is in recognition of our commitment to providing high quality sport experiences for all of our pupils in competitive and non-competitive environments. We are determined to develop a love of physical activity in our children that will lead to embedding healthy lifestyle choices.
We are so fortunate to have our own swimming pool and every child in our School has the opportunity to swim once a week for the whole school year. We also have a swimming pool committee who raise awareness within the local community to provide extra income.
In April 2013 we welcomed the Government’s announcement of extra PE funding. The funding, as I have referred to above, is being used to widen the range of sports that our children can participate in and to increase the expertise of our staff.
The money we have received from the Government has enabled us to become a member of the Barnet Partnership for School Sport, where we are able to take part in numerous sporting activities and competitions including; gymnastics, bocce, netball, tag rugby and athletics.
We have also purchased a specialist coach to deliver high quality sports teaching to the children and to provide mentoring and training for our staff. Staff have also developed a range of clubs available to the children continuing our provision of sporting opportunities across the school.
Our school has always strived to achieve our vision of producing happy, healthy and active children and this extra funding, along with the funding already committed by the School, is certainly helping us to achieve this.
