Through the input of a PE Mentor, all staff have grown in confidence and competence thus enhancing the quality of teaching and learning.  TA’s who work with children with special needs have attended an inclusion PE workshop.


The number and range of extra-curricular activities has increased and we celebrate regular participation through the use of a passport system.


Our children have been able to take part in a range of competitive and non-competitive activities.  We monitor and strategically target pupils for these events to ensure participation, confidence and well-being are improved.


We have developed positive attitudes to health and well- being across the school. Our Change 4 Life Club is in its third  year with previous members being used as leaders.  They have developed a leaflet promoting healthy lunches which has been sent to the whole school.


We continue to maintain and develop links with community sports clubs.  Children have taken up places local clubs following taster sessions and have benefitted from the expertise of these coaches.
