Expected Impacts for 2020-2021

  • More children being active on the playground

Play leaders have all been trained in each year group to help facilitate play and physical activity. They activities have been popular on the playground in all year groups. All year groups have been participating in the school marathon and learnt dance for virtual competitions. In the Summer term we started using this a Road to Tokyo to try and motivate the whole school to do 5000 miles by the end of the term. Student voice has identified areas the pupils want improving.


  • Children will take part in a wider variety of sports (even if only for a taster session) and more sports will be available at the school.

All classes have done at least one hour of archery and fencing as taster day sessions. Two year groups have completed Jag Tag taster days with two years groups doing this in September. These have been positively received by children in all year groups.

  • A higher profile for sporting achievements around the school.

Successes are shared on the newsletter and on the noticeboard in the reception of the school. Children have been taking part in virtual competitions for cross country, archery, cheerleading and dance. Whole school participation in gaining the times for cross country,  scores for archery and taking part in our SSP daily mile Road to Tokyo. All classes learnt the dances for the virtual dance competition and we won the Year 3,4,5 and 6 virtual competitions for both cheerleading and dance. In archery year 3 came 3rd and years 5 and 6 came first. The school had the highest contribution of students to the SSP Road to Tokyo with 3159 miles in the Summer term.

 PE being used to improve/motivate pupil in other subjects such as: creative writing; maths; PHSE; art and design and science.

Art competition as part of Sports Week with prizes for the winner from each year group. Science has been linked into PE lessons that PE leader has observed.

  • Teachers being more confident in providing PE online learning and activities

Resources have been passed onto each year group to help with online learning. PE is included on the online work each week for pupils.

  • Teaching of PE to be consistently good or outstanding

PE evidence folder is starting to be used to show a snapshot of what is taught each half term in indoor and outdoor PE. Snapshot walk-throughs by subject leader have shown good/outstanding teaching being demonstrated. Observations have been carried out on some staff and year group and show good to outstanding PE teaching. PE leader has taken part in PE observations by SCITT and NQT students and allowed them to observe the subject leader to promote good practice and demonstrate how to improve in areas for development.
