Haddenham Community Infant School has announced plans to develop a new sports curriculum, in partnership with the other village schools. This follows news that the UK Government is offering all schools a significant grant to develop sports provision.

HCIS is in discussion with Haddenham St. Mary's and Haddenham Community Junior School to work out the best way to use this money for the benefit of all the children who attend our schools.

The aim is created a partnership that will develop sports provision over time. The hope is to work closely to develop a sports curriculum that will be progressive and ensure that the children in the three village schools get equal coverage of sports and skills in relation to their age group.

This is a very exciting project and the schools aim to develop this in many different ways including professional development for our teachers, competitions and festivals between school,s and an all-round better physical education programme for our children.

HCIS has promised provide an update when the staff have more news to share.
