Sports Premium Funding

Our PE Curriculum at The Brigg

We believe that Physical Education is essential to the health, fitness, well-being and mental health of our children. We are proud to provide our children with a broad and engaging curriculum which not only uses highly skilled professionals to develop children's sporting skills but also develops their confidence, team-building, resilience and sportsmanship. We have developed close links with sporting bodies, such as Bolsover School Sports Partnership, to create many competitive, inclusive and diverse opportunities for our children at The Brigg. We have an ethos of the active learning throughout the day so that our children are happy, focussed and engaged in all subjects. As result, our children leave the school with the fundamentals in physical literacy, giving them the skills, knowledge and ability to thrive in physical education in their junior schools and with the confidence to continue participating in sport and lead healthy, happy, active lives.
