Sport is a very important part of life at Westcourt Primary & Nursery School. We believe that keeping active and eating healthily inspires all pupils to succeed. Sport can build confidence and gives children of all abilities the chance for success. Key life skills such as teamwork and problem-solving are developed in both our curriculum lessons and extra-curricular activities.
Some of our most recent sporting achievements have included:
Our aim is to increase pupil participation giving inclusive opportunities for all by delivering intra-school competitions for all year groups. We also attend organised competitions through Take Pride at both local and county level.
We also ensure we offer a variety of extra-curricular activities which we run alongside our Healthy Schools programme i.e. Change 4 Life, Play Leaders and Sports Crew.
We measure the impact of the funding that is given to us by:
2012/2013 - Bronze Award
2013/2014 - Silver Award
2014/2015 - Gold Award
2015/2016 - Gold Award
The Sainsbury's School Kitemark Award is an award which must be applied for each year. This helps us monitor our involvement as a school in Inter- and Intra-school competitions. Many of our children have represented the school in tournaments and competitions in the borough and Kent.
