Sport is very important to all of us at Homerswood. We use our Sports Premium effectively to enhance the sporting opportunities that we are able to give our children as well as ensure that our staff are able to teach effective lessons based on solid subject knowledge.
We work closely with the Sports Department at Monks Walk to organise inter-school competitions as well as offer staff training to teachers.
