Hungerford Primary School – Easter Sports Camp


We recently issued a questionnaire to parents at Hungerford Primary School about their needs from holiday clubs at the school.

We received some interesting feedback and we have found it very useful.  For more information about the feedback please see the Innov8 Sportz at Hungerford Primary School tab, above.

Based on this feedback, we are planning to offer holiday club places during the Easter Break, 7 April to 17 April 2015. 

Please note, we will not be running on the bank holidays on Friday 3rd and Monday 6th of April 2015.

 To make the Club viable we will need to receive advance bookings for a minimum of 15 children.  We will be able to take up to a maximum of 40 children per day.  The Club will be open to children  aged between 4 and 11 years.  The following options will be available:

Full Day (8am to 6pm) £25 per child, includes breakfast and tea

School Day (9am to 3pm) £20 per child

Half Day (9am to 1pm or 1pm to 5pm) £15 per child

Snacks will be provided. Parents only need to provide a packed lunch (for children attending for a Full or School Day). Full day bookings will be given priority.



We will open the club for bookings on Monday 23 February 2015 with a closing date of Friday 13 March 2015.


Youth Sport Trust ‘Unlocking Potential’ Manifesto

Unlocking Potential

Baroness Sue Campbell MBE blogged about the new Youth Sport Trust Manifesto yesterday saying this about the current state of our children’s health and fitness:

“Inactivity is destroying the potential of our children. The latest data shows around 4 in 5 children do not do enough daily physical activity to keep healthy. While most people, quite rightly, associate lack of activity with a decline in physical health and an increase in obesity, fewer people are aware of a wider, often hidden, consequence; that inactivity affects a child’s ability to succeed at school and in life.

 Inactivity undermines a child’s ability to achieve in the classroom. Science demonstrates that low levels of aerobic fitness and physical activity are associated with declines in academic achievement, cognitive abilities, brain structure and brain function. Education and health are, of course, closely linked, with overall health and wellbeing levels a key determinant of how well a child can achieve at school.

 But the detrimental effect of inactivity stretches beyond classroom achievement. Inactive children miss out on the personal, social and emotional development opportunities that their more active peers have available to them in abundance. A child taking part in sport, for example, has the opportunity to work in a team, to lead, to challenge, to win, to lose.”

The Youth Sports Trust wants this to change.  Their Manifesto asks for action in three key areas:
