As part of the Government Olympic legacy scheme, each Primary School in England has been given a dedicated amount of money to spend on providing additionally in PE to primary aged children.
At Stranton School , we already have an extensive Extended School curriculum, employ our own specialist coaches and compete in numerous intra and inter school competitions so we had to find alternative ways to most effectively use this money.
As well as making changes to our school curriculum - adding new exciting sports to what we already teach ( i.e. mountain-biking, handball, canoeing etc..) we have devised a Sports Scholarship scheme - intended to give children of all ages an opportunity to access the very best coaching out there in a range of sporting activities.
For one year, we will fund clothing, training and travel costs for our children to access some of this coaching - where ever it may be, and we will follow the children's progress here on the school website. Applications are open all year round.
If you would like to apply for one of Stranton School's Sports Scholarships, please click on the link below to access the form. This can be handed in to the school office, or emailed to email@example.com
Stranton Sporting Superstars 2016- 2017
I thought you like to know what Wyatt has been doing since February 2017 out of school.
Wyatt had asked if he could try out indoor bowling which I was able to arrange for him.
Even at this early stage he is showing signs of promise,
On Saturday 22 April he played in the Junior Pairs final (his first) although he was the runner up 18 -15.
His Dad said
" He made me very proud in the way he handled the pressure and I believe you (the school) have helped in preparing him for life within and out of school.
I hope he tells you and his peers without to much encouragement."
Keanes Pierce NDP Regional Championships competition, he is now first reserve for the Great Britain Tumbling semi-finals in Birmingham.
Nieve has been attending Hartlepool gymnastics 4 hours a week since November last year and has already been moved up two groups, so she is now training with kids that have been doing it for a long time which is such an achievement for her, as she loves it. Her abilities have developed a lot since she started, just last week Nieve completed her first circle up on the bar unaided and is becoming a lot more confidant on the beam. She seemed to have mastered the cartwheel and the handstand and also her round offs and splits are coming along nicely. Her next aim is to complete a walk over by herself and a forward roll on the beam. All of this practise is aimed towards competitions, which Nieve will be eligible to enter when she turns 8 next year. I think she would to fill her shelf with trophies.
