Impact and how we will make sure these improvements are sustainable

Raising children’s interest in physical activity

We funded the offer of every child being able to attend a P.E related after school club at least once during the year. Football, multi-skills, fun fitness and cricket were on offer at different points in the year. Across these clubs 90 places were taken up by pupils from Yr 2 – 6.

Supported curriculum

This was done by enabling all children from Y2-Y6 to be taught a range of sports skills with coaches from Southcoast Sports and hiring a greater number of swimming teachers.   This had a positive effect on standards and of the 2019 Y6 cohort of 13 pupils seven pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres; they could use a range of strokes effectively and could perform safe self-rescue in water-based situations.

Providing equipment and resources

Frisbees were purchased and necessary equipment for sports day.

Providing competitive opportunities

All children across were able to participate in some competitive events and many of the KS2 children completed in several events.  Some of the grant was used to transport pupils to these events ensuring access to competitive opportunities.

Further to the above:

  • Staff confidence and ability to deliver quality PE lessons has grown and developed ensuring sustained improvements going forward.  Meetings held in June 2019 to plan for continued and developing provision during the 2019/20 academic year.
  • Quality of PE improved – good use of coaches to deliver the curriculum enabling the children to achieve
  • Opportunities for all children to participate in competitions/matches has increased.
