The effect of the premium on pupils’ P.E. and sport participation

  • Teachers or their TAs have worked alongside the PE coaches and have kept notes and pictures. Children are fully engaged in the lessons and participate in a variety of sports in blocks of half a term at a time.
  • Increasing the skills level of staff in school means that P.E. and games are taught better so encouraging more children to participate in class and in after school clubs.
  • Increased participation in and out of school means more children are keen to join school teams for competitive and cooperative sport.
  • We have a variety of after school clubs on offer.
  • We have introduced Forest Schools for one afternoon per week for Years 1 and 2
  • We have strong girls and boys football teams who compete in local leagues and tournaments. The girls have reached the county finals of the ESFA tournament three years in a row and the boys are the current holders of the Stratford Town FC tournament. Last year they were runners up in the Alcester League.
  • We also enter tournaments in netball, cricket, rounders, tag rugby, athletics (both indoors and outdoors), tennis, gymnastics, tchoukball, indoor rowing and swimming.
  • We hold a cross-country club during the lunch hour on Fridays which is regularly attended by up to fifty children. On average, about 25 children compete in the South Warwickshire cross country events, and in the 2015/16 season nine children from Year 6 were selected to run in the county finals.
  • Pupils in our school engage in many out of school sports clubs and compete at a high level.

How we develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers

  • We are applying for the School Games Mark Gold Award which recognises the amount and quality of physical education and competition in and out of school, including school inter-house tournaments.
  • We aim to enter an even greater variety of sports activities and competitions outside our school,
  • We have appointed a P.E. coordinator who is a most enthusiastic coach and who organises intra and inter school competitions. Her enthusiasm and energy inspires children to ‘have a go’. She has increased participation overall.

  How we will make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

  • Staff will improve their practice as they work with the qualified practitioner.
  • We regularly upgrade our sports equipment and are always looking for opportunities to introduce additional sports activities despite the constraints of a small hall and often waterlogged pitch.
  • We will upgrade our high jump and long jump pit as they are in need of refurbishment.
