PE and Sports Facilities
At West Croft we are very fortunate to have a wide range of sporting facilities used to support and enrich both curricular and extra curricular activities.
Our outdoor environment provides a fantastic opportunity to partake in all areas of sport within the learning environment. A large field hosts two football pitches in winter and various rounders and cricket pitches in summer, as well as a 400m elliptical running track. An adventure play area including a climbing wall offers activities during lunch and break times.
The playground offers two Netball Courts and a range of markings for other smaller games or activities. Next to the Playground is the Multi Use Games Area (often referred to as the MUGA). This offers a unique games experience within an enclosed area.
The upper school hall offers spacious facilities enabling classes to enjoy and progress through a number of activities within the PE curriculum. This includes gymnastics, dance and adventurous activities. Pictured is an example of some of the current gymnastics provision fixed and portable, enabling all children to develop to their full potential.
Silver Games Mark Award
Our school has been awarded the Silver Games Mark for outstanding commitment to sport through enabling opportunities for children to compete, achieve and exceed in sports.
The School Games Mark is a Government-led awards scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to the development of sports competition across their school and into the community. It is a retrospective award which celebrates success over the previous academic year.
It is very valuable to the school, as OfSTED can use the Mark award as part of their PE inspection framework. More information is available online at: https://www.yourschoolgames.com/about-the-games.
