Target area



Development and training


Developing confidence of staff teaching PE by having sports coach in to observe and work with. Plan will be provided for future use.

Sports coach worked with KS1 to develop Teacher confidence. Staff involved have since left school but helped upskill NQT who was in role last year.

Increasing provision


Engaging more children in additional PE during lunchtimes especially over winter months to encourage them to stay active.

Big increase in participation in sporting activities in school. Lunch clubs well attended throughout the year.
