Get Set Funding

We are really lucky to have been selected as one of a small number of schools to receive 'Get Set' funding. 

Get Set is the British Olympic Association and British Paralympic Association’s youth engagement programme. It was originally created as the official London 2012 education programme, to deliver against Lord Coe’s vision to use the Games to inspire a generation of young people.

The programme aims to:

  • inspire young people to fulfil their potential and maintain healthy, active lifestyles
  • give all young people the chance to learn about and live the Olympic Values of friendship, excellence and respect and the Paralympic Values of inspiration, determination, courage and equality
  • build excitement about Team GB and ParalympicsGB, using the Olympic and Paralympic Games as a hook for learning and participation.

We use this funding to offer additional inspiring opportunities for our pupils in the form of physical exercise and fitness.  Since 2018, the funding has supported improvements to our Community Garden, encouraging the children to maintain a healthy lifestyle, keeping active outside gardening and understanding what healthy produce is.
