At Lightmoor Village Primary School we have been developing our sport provision as the school has grown. We have achieved the School Games Bronze Award for our PE and sport provision, and we are currently working towards our Silver Award. We currently have football teams entered into the Telford school tournaments, as well tag rugby and cross country teams.
We are part of the Telford Schools PE Partnership and have good links with other schools which enables staff to attend regular training and to arrange smaller sporting events with other schools.
At Lightmoor we are always trying to find imaginative ways to spend our PE and Sport Premium Funding and have offered our children tasters in archery, rock climbing, circus skills, skate boarding, skipping, skiing and hula hooping.
We are also committed to the importance of all children being able to swim before they leave us here at Lightmoor.

At Lightmoor Village Primary School, 20 out of our 24 pupils met this standard. This equates to 83%. We aim to improve this figure during acdemic year 18/19.
This year, 2018/19, we have had a grant of £17,750 and we plan to invest it on the following:
