Poppleton Ousebank Primary School is committed to the highest quality of provision for sports across the school. We work in partnership with York Schools Sports Partnership, Total Sports, Belinda Turnbull Tennis, Dance Factory, Merton Sports, Dame Darcy Bussell DDMIX, York Taekwondo and Netball coaching. Through partnerships we participate in both training and development, inter-school and regional competitions enabling pupils from both Key Stages to participate in both fun and competitive sports. School staff also provide coaching for football, cricket and gymnastics and swimming is part of the Year 4 sports curriculum.
We use our Sports Grant to ensure that children have access to a range of resources, coaches and competitions. Total Sports provide quality sporting cover during PPA time for staff, ensuring a consistent approach across the school.
Our children also attend local clubs and groups for football, cricket, gymnastics, rugby, athletics, swimming, karate, horse riding and tennis.
Children in Year 4 and 6 also take part in school residentials with outdoor pursuits and walking planned as core experiences.
The children are enthusiastic about the wealth of opportunities open to them and are aware of the importance of exercise and following a healthy lifestyle.
