All schools have been given money called the 'Schools Sports Premium' as part of the London 2012 Olympic Legacy.
Overdale Infant School is using this money in a number of ways to enhance our PE provision for the children and further promote a healthy lifestyle.
Please visit the Sports Premium page for further information. Our Curriculum overview document can be found at the bottom of the page.
We have invested some of our Sports Premium in purchasing high quality equipment for use during lunchtime. This helps children to engage in a range of different activities and to build essential social skills. Activities children have the opportunity to engage with include basketball, tag rugby, football, dance, den building, badminton and skipping, amongst others.
We have a wide range of after-school clubs offering children the chance to learn the skills of different sports with a sports coach. Please visit our clubs page for more information.
We employ a sports coaching company, 'Metcalf Multisports', to provide weekly professional development training for our staff, sports coaching for our children and provide our after-school clubs as detailed above.
Metcalf has a wealth of experience in sports coaching and work in a number of schools across Leicester and Rugby.
Please see Metcalf Multisports website for more information.
