Valley Road Academy

Sports Premium Funding


At Valley Road we are lucky to receive money from the government to support our Sports activities across the school. We use this money to enhance the P.E lessons and sporting activities in school as well as provide an extensive menu of after school opportunities for all our children.

We produce a timetable of activities each term and children love to come and enjoy themselves.

Our gymnastics team have done so well we had to have a new class for our Advanced gymnasts!!The timetable of events for the autumn term are detailed here.

Please see Miss Smith if you are interested in joining any clubs
