Sport is an important part of Hook Junior School life, both during the timetabled school day and through extra-curricular activities. All children benefit from regular sporting activities as a core part of their studies and the additional funding we receive to deliver this is applied to provide maximum opportunity and benefit to all children in school.
We provide a broad range of sport in which boys and girls participate. These include football, netball, hockey, rugby, cricket, judo, dance, gymnastics, swimming, athletics and cross country.
The school works with a number of organisations to supplement the sporting activities facilitated by school staff, offering a richer sporting experience for children and exposure to a broader range of sporting disciplines with coaching from specialists.
In addition to the sporting activities offered in school as part of the curriculum, further opportunity exists for all to participate in pre-school and after school clubs which take place all year round.
In order to provide our our sports offer, the school receives additional funding. Our Sports Premium Funding Strategy explains what funding we receive, our objectives in investing these funds and the expenditure for the current year.
In 2016, we achieved a Bronze award from the Sainsburys School Games scheme.
The School Games scheme encourages schools to organise competitive sports for children and encourage them to get involved on a school, intra-school and national level.
