Sports Premium

Featherby Junior School has a long standing history of sporting achievement.

We pride ourselves on a wide and varied sporting curriculum which develops the pupils social and emotional health as well as physical.

At Featherby Junior school, we have specialised sports coaches who work with the children and teachers to help deliver games and sports actvities.

We have an extremely wide selection of afterschool clubs as well as our sports coaches working across play times and lunch times to lead games and play at these times.

One focus of our sporting coaches is providing gifted and talented provision for those children who excel at specific sports. As part of the mini-youth games and other links to schools or competitions, the children enjoy experiencing tournaments and opportunities to complete with children from other schools across Kent and Medway.
