Our links with the local community through sport
Eastwood & District Primary Schools' Sports Association.
Each year we undertake a wide range of sporting activities with schools in the local area. These being:
- Cross Country (Running event usually held at Brookhill Leys Primary & Nursery School).
- District Sports (Athletics competition usually held at Harvey Haddon Stadium).
- Swimming Gala (Swimming event held at Kimberley leisure Centre)
- Football fixtures.
- Netball and rounders competitions (Held at local schools)
Other links with the Community.
In a similar ilk, we were also able to access training for upper KS2 from Eastwood Tennis Centre. They kindly sent a coach each week during the second part of the summer term and this again ended with an inter-school tournament at the tennis centre itself.
We like to invite the local press into school whenever we have sporting events that maybe of interest to our local community. (Sports Day, Olympic Swimmer's visit, Nepal sponsored run fundraiser).
Links with schools in our Academy Trust.
We have been working in partnership with schools in our Academy Trust to make links with the way that we teach and provide physical education for our pupils. We have spent time together during inset days and are beginning to formulate joint action plans outlining where those links will be the most successful. Joint events aiding transition were discussed, along with opportunities to access exciting PE equipment, training and support.
