Impacts from 2022-23 academic year

  • More children being active on the playground

    Playleaders have been trained and will promote games on the playground. Cricket, Netball nets and basketball nets are constantly out to allow children to practise at lunchtimes if they choose to. Extra trials and clubs have allowed children more opportunities to be active at lunchtime for example the ‘Run in the Sun’ club for year 3 and 4 pupils. The bottom field has been opened at lunchtime to allow more space for year 6 pupils to be active. This is very well used.

    • 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 children have had the opportunity to take part in archery sessions and year 5 and 6 pupils have had the opportunity to try badminton and table tennis. This was not offered as extensively last year. All children took part in a yoga session to increase mindfulness and give strategies to reduce stress and anxiety. Some year 3 and 4 children took part in an orienteering taster event. Additionally, we have entered a boys and girls team in cricket matches for the first time and sent a group girls to a shooting stars taster football session aimed at girls wanting to take part in football. Feedback from pupils about all the events were positive including children joining sporting clubs afterwards who did not before.

    • A higher profile for sporting achievements around the school.

    Certificates have been given out in assembly and there have been updates on performances in the newsletter. Both PE displays have been updated. New swimming hats have improved motivation to take part in the swimming gala. Children are consulted on how to improve events afterwards to provide exit feedback to evolve practise the following year.


    • Improve the PE academic performance of PPG and SEND pupils.

    Barrier plans for pupils with suggested ways to help overcome barriers in PE have been created. PPG and SEND pupils identified from previous year. PPG/SEND group targeted for different events such as girls’ football, B teams in events and orienteering to give children opportunities to represent the school and improve motivation within PE- 50% of PPG register have represented the school in sporting events and 40% of the SEND register. Foundation data will show an increase from Autumn to Summer in PPG/SEND students moving from Below to On Track or On Track to Above in PE.

    • More children to take part in intraspecific (within school) and interspecific (outside of school) competitions

    We are on track to enter a wider variety of competitions than the previous year. We have already taken part in the following competitions.

    Intraspecific: Dodgeball (y5 and 6); Archery (y3,4,5 and 6); Badminton (y5 and 6;, Cross Country (y3,4,5 and 6); Swimming (year 4); Table Tennis (y5 and 6); Football (y5 and 6 boys and girls); Cricket (boys and girls); Athletics (y,3,4,5 and 6). Netball (y4,5 and 6). All pupils have taken part in interspecific competitions.

    Interspecific: Dodgeball (y5 and 6); Netball (y 5 and 6); Football (y5+6 boys); Table tennis (y5 and 6); Archery (y3,4,5 and 6); Orienteering (y3 and 4); Athletics (y 3,4,5 and 6); Tag rugby  (y3,4,5 and 6); Cricket (y5 and 6 boys and girls); Cross Country (y3,4,5 and 6); Swimming Gala (y3,4,5 and 6).

    58% of the pupils have taken part in interspecific competitions this year.


    • Teaching of PE to be consistently good or outstanding

    One member of staff has been on a Gymnastics course and they say it has improved their confidence in this area. Another member of staff is undertaking tennis training later this term. Pupil Voice has indicated ways to improve PE lessons and overcome their barriers. This feedback has been shared with teachers to help improve practice. Observations were completed on new staff and feedback/mentoring given where needed to improve PE teaching and confidence.
