The Watergrove Trust takes the health and fitness of its students very seriously. We actively promote healthy lifestyles within our partner schools. Our healthy school efforts are put into practice, firstly through our healthy lunch offerings and also by encouraging students to become involved in the wide range of enrichment and curriculum led sports and physical education activities we have to offer. Our team is here to make sure every child within the Watergrove Trust has the opportunities and support to stretch their sporting ambitions and achieve more.
The trust is well resourced in terms of facilities. Extensive outdoor areas including an all-weather 3G pitch, two large sports halls, a swimming pool, a fully equipped fitness suite and several open playing fields are all available for use both during the school day, after school and throughout weekends.
These extensive facilities enable a wide range of sports and activities to local partner schools that would normally be both expensive and difficult to manage. Our school PE provision team would be happy to answer any questions about what the Watergrove Trust can offer your school. Contact us for more information.
The Trust employs teachers and coaches that specialise across a range of sports including Jujitsu, Rowing, Skiing and Underwater Hockey. Staff work on multiple sites and are available to support partner schools and academies by taking classes, thus offering planning, preparation and assessment time opportunities to partner school teachers.
The Trust PE provision team also co-ordinates inter-school competition ensuring that individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in competitions run by school games organisers, with the winning teams progressing to the Sainsbury’s School Games Festival.
The Watergrove Trust works in partnership with Sainsbury’s School Games Mark which is a government led award scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to sport and competition within their school.
The Watergrove trust is able to offer support and guidance to assist local schools to gain the mark, demonstrating, at primary school level, a commitment by the school to have appropriately utilised part of the PE and Sports Premium. The School Games Mark is also open to secondary schools.
