Impact Statement for 2016/17

The school has actively promoted involvement of pupils in a wider range of cluster initiatives and this has been well supported by staff, pupils and parents.  This has led to children being more willing to be involved and participation rates have increased.  There has also been a measureable increase in pupils’ confidence in their own abilities and they are more aware of the skills required for particular teams games and competitions. 

There is more of a focus upon ’taking part’ and having a ‘growth mindset’.  At our recent Sports Day, the engagement of pupils was noticeably more positive and children were keen to take part and compete.

This is also beginning to impact children more in their everyday learning in class – increasing pupils’ confidence, concentration, team work and social skills. 

Our ‘Play leaders’ initiative was set up at the beginning of the year, involving a group of children in being trained to lead small group games at lunchtime.  Some feedback received by KS1 pupils, is that ‘playtimes are calmer; children behaviour is better; there is greater      respect for each other; we are actively engaged and enjoying playtimes; playtimes are more focused and orderly. The investment in more equipment has encouraged a wider range of play opportunities and has helped to involve more children in enjoyable activities. 

  • Our ‘Sports Ambassadors’ programme has helped to promote active playtimes for the KS2 pupils.  It has supported older children to develop their leadership skills – offering more opportunities to involve other in team games.
  • Our ‘Active and Healthy celebration’ week has been highly successful.  Professional coaches have been employed to offer the children in a range of exciting sport opportunities and activities.  Children have enjoyed trying out new and exciting activities.  They have      approached these with enthusiasm and increasing confidence.  The pupils have commented on how enjoyable this week has been - giving real focus; promoting whole school involvement;  and celebrating achievements.  Comments from pupils, parents and staff have been very positive. 
  • We have sought to establish links  with Norman Court School – this has enabled us to use their facilities; sports coaches; bolster numbers for team events that have supported both schools; and developed our relationship with the school and the community.
  • We have also funded Specialist coaching for PE/Games lessons and this has helped to increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding, developed their physical skills and expertise; and increased the confidence and capacity of our school staff.
