The impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment


·       External coaches have provided the knowledge and expertise to improve the confidence and skill set of teaching staff within school thus developing a sustainable teaching model.

·       Freddy Fit sessions have ensured that participation numbers continue to be high in the school, in addition to increasing pupils’ knowledge around the importance of exercise within a healthy lifestyle.

·       Maintenance and running costs of the mini bus have ensured that participation in competitive sport has increased.

·       The PE lead has provided staff with effective CPD opportunities, leading to an increase in knowledge across the PE curriculum.

·       Subsidising the cost of after school clubs has ensured that children have experienced a range of different sports and activities.  We are able to offer places to around 150 children per week to engage in sporting activities after school at no cost to parents.

·       The PE planning system has impacted on the consistency of PE planning across all phases of the school.

·       Having a member of staff qualified to deliver balance bike sessions has ensured quality teaching and learning for the children of Woodland and has allowed them to develop these early cycling skills as well as gross motor skills and improvements around Physical Development elements of the EYFS curriculum have been continued.

·       High quality resources have meant that the teaching and learning across all aspects of PE has improved, providing children with an improved experience across curricular and extra-curricular sessions.

·       Being part of external partnerships and associations has allowed the school to develop links with external providers and other schools, providing an increased number of opportunities for pupils to both participate and compete.

  •    By ensuring equipment is checked for safety annually the school is able to plan future expenditure and ensure efficient use of funds.


How the improvements will be sustainable in the future


·       The current work of the PE lead is embedding practises that will be sustainable in the coming years, impacting on the experiences that future children will have through sport. Pupils are motivated by our Sports Leader and his skill set and experiences and therefore are encouraged to participate themselves in sports.

·       The initial set up cost of balance bikes has meant that future maintenance costs or costs to replace unusable bikes has a limited financial impact.

·       All adults are present when any external coach is in school. This means that the impact the children have felt over recent years should be maintained year on year as teachers become increasingly more confident to deliver high quality sessions as they too have been coached in how to deliver sessions.

·       Attendance at competitions and making links with other schools, including high schools has led to positive school relationships, securing future competition and participation opportunities. Pupils have opportunities to develop personally and socially when meeting with children and adults from other schools.

·       Investment and regular maintenance of the school mini bus is limiting future costs, leading to the resource to be cost effective; having a significant impact on the amount of events Woodland children can attend in the future.
