Sports Funding

Our House teams lined up at the start of our amazing KS1 Sports Festival

The Gold Mark Sports Award

At the Priory School we love Sport and we recognise how important it is in the development of healthy lifestyles and good mental health.

We are proud that in 2018-19 we were awarded the Gold Mark Sports Award for our strong commitment to, engagement and delivery of competitive sport. We benefit hugely from being part of the Christchurch Sports Partnership and having great links with Twynham PE department.

Our Dedicated and Specialist Staff Team

We have a committed team dedicated to improving opportunities for all children to take part in Sport. Mrs Miller is our Physical Education coordinator and Mr Major, a previous coach with the RFU, is our Sports Higher Level Teaching Assistant. A significant proportion of our Sports Funding finances this provision and pays for the cover needed for staff to attend competitions with the children.

Christchurch Sports Partnership

Another significant part of our sports budget funds our membership of the Christchurch School Sports Partnership. In 2018-19 we attended over 28 events put on by CSSP, for all ages and abilities. Our amazing CSSP coordinator, Dan Moody, won the SGO (Sports Games Organiser) of the year 2018-19! See the Youtube clip below and spot some of our Priory pupils!
