Background of PE at Balby Central Primary Academy

The last academic year has seen the school place a real emphasis on improving its PE and sports provision. We run an extensive extra-curricular programme with often two sport related after school clubs each day. The PE Leader and Sports Coach are at the heart of this provision but are well supported by teaching staff across school. The high quality provision has led to our children being scouted for the Northern Ballet School an has also enabled us to become the only school in Doncaster to become SSE Wildcats for Girls Football Centre, providing a great opportunity for girls to play football.

The school has taken a lead in the Rose Learning Trust to organise a Trust Sports Day, a team games afternoon and a local football league. The PE Leader and Sports Coach work tirelessly to provide opportunities inside and outside school including workshops, taster sessions, sports trips and regular interschool and intraschool fixtures in a range of sports.

Visits to the school are warmly invited. Please contact the school to arrange a visit.
