PE & Sport
Physical and mental well-being remains a priority at Carr Head. With this in mind we have spent the PE grant to enhance and enrich the curriculum offer to maximise the benefits to all. To date we have introduced the Daily Mile challenge following the installation of a colourfiul track around the playground. Supplementary to this is the newly developed bark area which has created more usable space for recreation during inclement weather. Looking ahead to 2019-20 we are developing the area beyond the bark to create an oasis of calm, planted with sensory plants that will also encourage wildlife to visit. The purpose of this garden is to promote positive mental health and create an outdoor learning environment that can be enjoyed by all.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful field at the rear of our building and whilst this provides many opportunities, it has terrible drainage issues rendering it often unusable. With this in mind we are saving towards building a multi-use games area (MUGA) on the field so that the children can enjoy a variety of outdoor sports and games throughout the year. Unfortunately a project like this is expensive (we have received initial estimates in the region of £60,000) and so we are saving money from the PE grant to pay for this. We continue to seek grant funding to supplement this project but to date have been unsuccessful in our applications.
