EYFS and upper Key Stage 2 playground have continued to be developed in order to maximise opportunity for activity.
The EYFS reception playground has been significantly improved to encourage gross motor co-ordination, basic skills and personal and social development via team games and activity. Children achieved good progress here and met the expectations of the early learning goals.
Sport in all playgrounds and team games were maximised by our use of extra staffing and resources. Children were able to build on skills taught in PE lessons by practising and playing specific sports in the playground at lunchtime.
The upper Key Stage 2 playground was developed to provide a number of different areas to maximise sports and games that were played.
All children in year groups 1-6 have been given opportunity to attend free after school clubs. These have been provided by both outside professionals and teachers in school, thus developing teacher expertise and providing a wide range of sports. 145 children attended these.
Holiday sports clubs have been run during school holidays and have been accessed by 120 children. They ensured participation in sport increased as well as providing safe places for children to play during school holidays.
Leadership skills were developed in our oldest pupils to help prepare them in their transition for year 7. Residential visits did not take place due to Covid and staffing however are booked for 2022/23.
46 children competed in 5 days of Commonwealth activities. 60 children received cricket coaching from ECB and 18 children took part in a young leaders project.
120 children in years 4 and 5 received weekly intensive swimming lessons. These aimed to increase the number of children who will be able to swim 25 metres by the end of year 6 and will continue next year.
45% of pupils in year 6 were able to swim a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and 20% were able to perform self rescue in different water based situations.
