We are a school which loves sport! From our range of extracurricular activities, to our commitment to developing high quality PE lessons for every learner, we understand the value of physical activity not only on our learner’s fitness, but also on their mental health, well-being and academic achievement.

Primary school PE and sport funding 2017 – 2018
What is it?
The government is currently providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding can only be spent on improving their provision of PE and sport in school, but each school has the freedom to choose the best ways to do this for their learners. This funding is guaranteed until 2020.
How much school sports funding does Redbrook Hayes Community Primary School receive?
In the financial year 2017-2018 Redbrook Hayes received £9000.
How does Redbrook Hayes spend this funding on improving PE and sport across the school?
In brief, the main areas of spending for the sports premium funding are:
Funding the school mini-bus which allows learners to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities and sporting competitions in the local area and beyond. Last year the mini-bus was used to transport learners from across the school to 14 off-site competitions, this year we hope to compete in even more.
Employing a sports advocate in school to develop the schools extra-curricular sports programme, both at lunchtimes and out of school hours.
Achieving the School Games Award at the end of the academic year.
Increasing the options for learners to keep active at lunchtimes.
