To raise standards, we require ALL children to have a kit appropriate for sports activities just as ALL children are expected to wear uniform. We would like any combination of colours as long as they are black, white and green:
Trainers are not acceptable footwear in school, (sports only). Please ensure that your child wears black shoes in and around school.
Henley Green P.E and Sport Premium Impact
The Government award Primary Schools a premium to support sport participation for all.
Funding is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils, aged between 5 and 11, at the school. The purpose of the funding is to improve provision of PE and Sport at Henley Green and to encourage and support healthy and active lifestyles amongst our children and their families.
During 2015-16 Henley Green were awarded £9164 which was spent as follows:
· £8000 towards salary of a full time PE/ Sports teacher
· £123 to pay for minibuses to take teams to tournaments and sports events.
· £700 to buy sports equipment.
· £100 to buy trophies, medals etc to reward success and effort in sport.
· Providing quality after school clubs. (PE Teacher’s salary)
· £20 membership of Coventry Sports to compete in a range of events from football to X country.
· Upskilling staff to run after school clubs, lunchtime clubs and support PE with growing confidence. (PE Teacher’s salary)
· Supply Cover to cover PE Teacher when attending events and competitions with groups
Children at Henley Green are encouraged to take part in sport and physical activity regardless of any difficulties that they have.
Inclusion is vitally important and all children are fully included in all sports with support from other children, staff or by using modified equipment if necessary; the recent Paralympic week was a great success with all pupils taking part in games from seated volleyball and visually impaired running and football.
Competition is encouraged and children are taught to fulfil their potential against other pupils or by challenging their own personal bests in a wide range of physical disciplines.
Healthy diet and lifestyles are taught and modelled and many children are becoming increasingly aware of their links to mental and physical wellbeing.
The Sports Premium has allowed the PE/Sport Teacher, to buy quality sports equipment to enable children to feel a sense of pride about their school – as a Year 6 girl said: ‘I feel proud of our school and our sports facilities are amazing.’
Competing across the City
Children regularly travel to sporting events at other schools and sports halls and compete well with confidence in themselves and their performance. By hiring minibuses from local schools, children have competed in competitions around the City in:
· Cross Country races
A Year 6 girl felt that ‘Representing my school at netball was amazing, I felt proud and we made friends with children from other schools!’
Around 150 children have now represented Henley Green in sporting competition against other schools in the past 2 years.
Over 200 children have regularly attended after school sports clubs and girls now make up approximately 50% of the children attending sports clubs (after school after a slow start).
Organisation and support of lunchtime staff has resulted in increased participation in safe, meaningful physical activity on the playground with a wide range of sports and activities available.
Less active children are being targeted and encouraged to participate in groups such as the 1 Mile Walk group.
Children are benefitting from increased responsibilities with roles such as Sports Leaders and Walk Leaders where they are taught to lead and support other children and staff with sporting activities at lunchtimes, PE lessons and after school events.
Sports Leaders have supported sports events that Henley Green have held over the past year - something that gives them a sense of pride in themselves and school.
The Sports Premium has supported the development of PE and Sport at Henley Green and children are very aware of the importance of sport, healthy lifestyles and competition. Sport plays a prominent part of life at Henley Green and children are inspired and motivated to participate in physical activities – evident by the ‘buzz’ around sport and the oversubscribed sports clubs and teams. Official recognition of this has recently arrived with the School Games Bronze Award for commitment to school sports which supports school sports provision for all and healthy competition.
Fantastic news. Henley Green have been awarded the School Games Bronze Award in recognition of our contribution to competitive school sport. The School Games is a government led scheme to encourage competitive sport amongst, and within schools, and Henley Green have entered teams into competitions for children from year 1-6 in sports such as: netball, football, athletics, gymnastics, multi skills and rounders in the last year. The award also recognises the importance that sport has in the development of primary age children at Henley Green and the encouragement of all children to live healthy and active lives. This is a proud moment for Henley Green and we all look forward to another successful year of sport for all.

Spring term was a really busy sporting term at Henley Green with teams competing in tag rugby, cross country, football, gymnastics, netball and multi skill competitions. Our netball team won the Coventry Schools East Netball League by winning every game and scoring 43 goals and conceding only 5 in the process. Our year 1 and 2 multi skill team finished 4th out of 25 schools in a competition at the Alan Higgs centre - a fitting reward for a hard term's work practising running, stepping, jumping and throwing skills.
The summer term promises to be as busy and hopefully successful too! We will be sending sports teams to cricket, rounders, athletics, tennis, football, netball and golf competitions and working hard to improve our personal bests in time for Sports Days which take place during the week beginning Monday 21st June.
After School Sports Clubs for the Summer Term will be:
Monday - Year 3 and 4 Athletics Club MB
-Year 4, 5 and 6 Running Club LW
- Year 1 Teamwork and Games Club JP
Thursday - Y5, 6 Girls Netball - MB
The Henley Green school football team has been busy recently with Harry Shaw and CCFC cup games. After a monumental match against Moseley, which went deep into extra time, Henley lost 6-5 despite leading 5-4 with seconds remaining - a defensive mix up in the poor light gifting the visitors a late equaliser. The team performed with determination and learnt vital lessons and the match was so entertaining that Moseley have promised to return for a rematch next term.
Henley Green took A and B teams to the AT7 centre for the CCFC Cup and both teams represented the school brilliantly under the floodlights. The B team featured mostly players making their debuts for the school and they managed to score in each game before being knocked out, gaining invaluable experience along the way. The A team took a while to understand the goal area rule but regrouped as a team to draw with Willenhall A 1-1, beat Coten End 3-1 and Manor Park 2-0 to win their league. The Henley front line and midfield were faster and stronger than the opposition as they overcame St Barts 2-0 in the semi final before losing 2-0 to an impressive Whitmore Park in the semi final - an amazing performance and well done to the team.
Welcome back after the summer holidays. After School clubs are now up and running for the new term at Henley Green and there has been an overwhelming number of children applying to join clubs -some clubs have been split over the next two terms due to the high demand. These are the current clubs that are running until the end of the Autumn Term:
Monday: Year 2 Multi Skills 3:15-4:30 MB
Tuesday: Year 5/6 Football 3:15-4:30 MB
Wednesday: Year 3/4 Team Sports 3:15-4:30 MB
Thursday: Year 4, 5 and 6 Girls only Netball 3:15-4:15 MB
Please collect your children from the School Hall door at the above times after clubs.
Last term was really successful and it was fantastic to see so many families supporting our children at the four Sport's Days where pupils tried to beat their personal bests and school records across a range of athletic events. Our girl's netball team competed brilliantly in a mini tournament against St Christopher's school and managed to win the last game with some determined forward play. During this term the school football team are playing in games and tournaments and we have teams entered into Cross Country competitions. Coaches from CCFC are working with Year 5 this term to teach the importance of sport and healthy living and Sports coaches from Lyng Hall are supporting out netball team.

After School Sports Clubs are running during the Summer Term 2015 at Henley Green. Monday night is Year 1 and 2 Summer Sports Club, Tuesday night is Football Club (years 5/6), Wednesday is Athletics Club (years 3/4) and Thursday is Netball Club (Year4, 5 and 6 girls). Clubs run from 3:30-4:30 apart from year 4, 5 and 6's Netball club which finishes at 4:15 on Thursday. There is also an extra dance club for boys, with Alexis, on Thursdays from 3:30-4:25.
After school clubs give children the chance to build on skills learnt during P.E. and help to contribute to their personal health and fitness levels. They also provide a good chance for children to socialise with friends after school.
During January and February 16 children from Year 6 ran 12 miles at school before completing the 13th, and final, mile in front of thousands of spectators on the course in the city centre. It was a great achievement for the children, and staff, and they all deserved their medals, T shirts and goody bags at the finish line! Well done everybody - what's the next sporting challenge?
