All children attending a full camp will receive a Sky Blues Medal, CCFC Tickets and will be in with a chance of receiving one of three awards – the Respect Award, Star Player or the Coaches’ Award.

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.

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?
