The effect of the funding on pupils’ sport participation and attainment
Breaktimes are more active. Children are using equipment and engaging in physical activity and sport. Clubs began once Government regulations allowed. Only a small number have been attending, but interest is growing. Increased confidence in children as they approach transition to secondary school. Many have overcome fear of heights and achieved at or have been exposed to activities they may never have the chance to try again.
Year 6 achievements in the water
- 63% can swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- 66% can use a range of strokes effectively
- 72% can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
How we’ll make sure improvements are sustainable
We will replace equipment as it breaks. We will use pupil voice to ask children what they would like to help keep them active. We will continue with clubs but target less active children. Use pupil voice to find out what clubs children would like and be more likely to attend. We will have a full residential next year, funded by parents. We have an Adventure Day planned for the Autumn term.
