As you may be aware, as part of the Olympic Legacy scheme each primary school has been allotted a sum of money, by the government, to use to strengthen the sports provision in their school. At St Thomas’ we were given £8,000 plus a further £5.00 per pupil, giving us a total of approximately £10,000. We at St Thomas’ have always had a strong tradition of running as many dinner time and after school clubs as possible, as you can see from the table of available clubs, presented on the school web site.

This year, the money is being spent on employing Mr M South to provide sports cover for a number of classes in order to provide high quality PE provision for children at the school. Mr South runs morning clubs 4 days a week for running and dancing.  In addition, he runs lunchtime clubs 4 days a week.  These clubs encompass all Key Stage Two year groups and Year 2.  Furthermore, these lunchtime clubs are used to promote both inter and intra competitions as well as the good physical health of the children.  Mr South runs 2 evening clubs.  These clubs cover a wide variety of sports which allow for competitive and non competitive participation as well as encouraging as many children as possible to be included especially vulnerable groups.

This year, St Thomas ' were awarded the most improved school in Medway for cross-country.  In conclusion this has been a successful year for sport at St Thomas'.  Throughout the year we attended numerous Medway Mini-Youth Games competitions and finished an admirable 11th out of the 66 schools that took part.  We also introduced the children to intra-competitions where different year groups and all genders competed against one another.  it would be fair to say that most if not all the children in Key Stage Two participated in at least one inter or intra competition.  100% of Year 6 children left school as competent swimmers.
