Sports Premium

Baldersby St James Church of England Primary School believes that it is important to promote pupils’ healthy lifestyles, physical well-being and to encourage them to participate in sports activities and tournaments. We recognise that there are many benefits to ensuring that all children participate in physical activity and sport including:

  • Develops strength, mobility and physical endurance
  • Supports the establishment of life-long heathy lifestyles
  • Helps with weight control (in light of the increase in childhood obesity cases)
  • Develops social skills, teamwork and friendships
  • Gives children access to new and varied sporting experiences
