Our Sports Days on 21st June were a great success. A huge thankyou to the sports leaders at Laughton and also Mr Kay and his team from Dinnington High School. Hydra won both the Foundation and KS1/2 Sports Days. Well done!
Sport Premium Overview
At Laughton Junior & Infant School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
So far we have used the money to attend events such as; basketball, waterpolo, dodgeball, football, orienteering, cross country and hockey.

Do you think it is important to learn swimming and why?
“It’s important as it’s an education and it’s important for our safety.”
“It’s important because if we fell in water and couldn’t swim you’d drown.”
“Helps you to be calmer if you fall in. If you were playing near the sea or a pool and slipped you’d be able to survive.”
Since going swimming do you think your skills have improved?
“I didn’t know I could do a handstand and I can hold my breath for longer.”
“I can swim exactly the same as before but I still enjoy it.”
“I have improved swimming on my back and I’m more confident in holding my breath.”
“I can now swim under the water without holding my nose.”
If you could change one thing about our swimming lessons, what would it be?
“I want more time and to do more fun activities like jumping in, diving for things and handstands.”
“I’d like to do some swimming competitions like races. We could also learn to dive off the diving boards.”
“I don’t like getting changed in front of people, I’d like a private changing room.”
"Can you tell the swimming teachers thank you for teaching us?"
Do you enjoy taking part in football fixtures and why?
“Good as we get to play different teams. I know some people from other teams from Anston Rangers.”
“It’s good to represent the school and it’s good exercise”
“It’s good as we get to experience different positions that we don’t get to play in on a Sunday. I played in the net yesterday.”
If you could change anything about our football league what would it be?
“I’d like to play more home matches so my family can come and watch.”
“We only play 20 minutes each way.”
“I want to see where we are in the league or where the other teams are.”
Children would like an away kit, a football kit in bigger sizes “the kit doesn’t fit me properly”.
“We could have a training day so we can practice properly as a team.”
Does playing in our fixtures inspire you to join a team (if you don’t already) or play more football?
“I like playing football, it’s my hobby.”
“I like it better than playing on a Sunday as there’s less commitment, it’s free.”
“It helped me join a team, I started playing for a team since playing for school.”
