At Tweendykes our pupils are encouraged to pursue an active lifestyle and all pupils access at least 2 hours a week school sport. We are lucky that all our pupils access swimming at least once a week and run a variety of lunchtime and afterschool clubs. We have a well supported holiday club and compete in a variety of competitions each year in a wide range of sports.
We receive funding from the School Sport premium grant which is used to support Trampolining, morning exercise classes and hydrotherapy sessions. We are also lucky enough to have 3 mini buses to transport pupils to a wide range of activities.
We have strong links with a number of clubs and sports providers including a long standing link with Hull Kingston Rovers and Atlantis Swimming. Pupils are offered the opportunity to obtain leadership qualifications and continue these into the sixth form, running competitions for the younger age groups throughout the year.
We work closely with our co-located school Winifred Holtby School with pupils accessing joint provision across the 2 sites.
We’re delighted to have achieved the SportsMark Silver Award for 2017/2018.
The Award is a government led awards scheme supported by the Youth Sports Trust to recognise the commitment to sport made by schools.
We have been involved in several local and regional competitions with several of our pupils representing Great Britain in swimming and have fielded several teams in local events against other schools. We have successfully delivered a wide range of Outdoor Pursuits and the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.
We’re extremely proud of our pupils who have also acted as young leaders and officials in several sporting events. Including the Disports competition and intra school festivals for our younger pupils.
We would especially like to thank our partners who have worked with us this year.
They include Atlantis Swimming, Hull Kingston Rovers, Hull City FC, JB Dance Academy, Yorkshire Cricket, Aspire Gymnastics Academy and the Humber Forest School.
This year we have adopted sensory circuit principles within our PE lessons. The sessions are set up in an obstacle course format starting with alerting activities, moving onto organising activities and finishing with calming activities. This term our whole school theme is imagination, linking to this the junior PE obstacle course that pupils can be seen participating in above is based around ‘Shrek’ and his mission to rescue Princess Fiona.
