Costs & Impact


£45 hour        1.5 hours a week all year round                              Total spend - £2,350

An off-site activity that every student has had an opportunity to be involved with for at least half a term. Gymnastics has developed student’s physical and sensory needs. Our support staff working alongside the coaches has helped students learn and develop their communication and resilience.

The success of gymnastics led our Family Footings team to work with Nuneaton gymnastics and organise out of school events for pupils and their families. This has helped families engage and interact with each other building positive relationships; the gymnastics provided an activity families could do together.



£36 session    1 sessions a week all year round                            Total spend - £1,440

As a school we have no pool and we value swimming not only as a compulsory element of KS2 PE but an essential life and social skill. We transport the children to AT7, one of our local Sports Centres. KS 2 Children having swimming lessons weekly for half the year, in 3 x half term blocks. They also have the option to swim “socially” in the alternate half terms. This has developed class bonds, friendships and confidence.
