The effect of the premium on pupils’ P.E. and sport participation
- Teachers have kept notes and pictures and have worked alongside the professional sports instructors (D Partridge/R West) . Children are fully engaged in the lessons. There are a variety of sports planned in blocks of half a term at a time.
- Multi Sports after school club is oversubscribed and this has the knock on effect of increasing participation in other after school sports clubs.
- 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 strong girls and boys football
- We have a variety of after school clubs on offer for sports activities including; football, cricket, netball, cross-country, multi sports
- We have introduced forest schools. This has been further developed this year with a successful Smart Start bid to offer ‘Woodland tales’. This is a developing project involving nursery and pre-school families.
- There is a ‘Go Outside’ after school club open to younger children.
- 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 last year reached the semi-finals of the regional tournament. They also won the local league, the Stratford District Finals and the ABS tournament. Our boys team boys are the current holders of the Stratford Town FC tournament. Last year they were runners up in the Alcester League. Our KS1 teams were winners and runners up in the ABS tournament.
- We also enter tournaments in netball, cricket, rounders, tag rugby, athletics (both indoors and outdoors), tennis, gymnastics, football, indoor rowing and swimming.
- We hold a running 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.
- 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 working towards 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.
- This year we are purchasing more P.E. equipment, particularly gym equipment, and new storage facilities for easier access.
- We have supported non-swimmers to enable them to achieve their 25m swimming award.
- We have refurbished our high jump and long jump pits to ensure their long term useability.
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.
