Sports at Benton Dene
For the 4th year in succession, we have been awarded the Sainsbury's School Games Gold Award. This award is in recognition of the sporting opportunities we provide our pupils at Benton Dene. As part of the School Games Mark, children are encouraged to demonstrate the ‘Values of the Games’, which are essential for good sportsmanship and competition
Benton Dene School PE and Sports Premium
As a school, we strive to continue to create a culture that encourages all children to be active, healthy and enjoy sports. We aim to achieve this by offering a broad and balanced curriculum which is differentiated and personalised to meet the needs of our learners. On a weekly basis, we provide our pupils with high quality and engaging PE lessons. We also provide fortnightly swimming lessons for KS1 and KS2 pupils at the Lakeside Leisure Centre, Killingworth.
In addition, pupils have the opportunity to access rebound therapy. Rebound is the use of trampolines to provide therapeutic exercise for children with a wide range of needs. It is delivered by trained staff who work on exercises that are designed to meet each child’s individual needs. The benefits from rebound are to improve fitness, communication skills and gross motor skills.
