The direct funding scheme for school sport, announced in 2013, is going to be extended for a further five years. Sport is important because it encourages children to be active, lead a healthy lifestyle, make friends and, of course, have fun. But quality school sport has benefits that spread right across the curriculum and beyond - it develops confidence and a sense of achievement, it teaches young people how to rise to a challenge, and nurtures the character and skills that will help them get on and succeed in life.
At Bengeworth Academy we employ a qualified Specialist PE Teacher to oversee the teaching and coordination of PE at Bengeworth. We also employ a Specialist Sports Coach to deliver alternative curriculum enrichment activities throughout the year, including clubs. Such specialism has successfully increased children's subject knowledge, participation and achievement in Sport and PE. Many children are now signposted into local clubs as their love for PE and School Sport has evolved.
