INDICATORACTUAL IMPACT ON PUPILS' OUTCOMES 2021-2022
The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

Autumn 1 - Fit spurts were introduced during the INSET day in September with a follow-up staff meeting in October, focusing on research behind the benefits of physical activity; pupils started taking part in three fit spurts each week and recording their personal bests at the beginning and end of the half term - in Y2 to Y6, there was a 34% average increase in the number of fit spurts completed within three minutes from the beginning to the end of the half term. Pupils also began completing their 1 mile run each day; only 23% of pupils could run this at the beginning of the academic year, and in six out of the fifteen classes, no children were able to do this. The Qualitas sports coach trained KS2 sports’ leaders, Change for Life Champions and midday supervisors - rotas in place for pupils to lead active games during lunchtimes; sports’ leaders delivering warm-up activities in PE lessons. All pupils in KS1/KS2 began regularly accessing the outdoor areas - Enchanted Garden, Creation Station and Creature Feature, making the learning more active and raising engagement levels.  New starters in Reception were provided with a free water bottle and encouraged to bring this into school every day.  All pupils in Y2 took part in a session of bike-a-mentals, enabling them to improve their fundamental balancing skills and encouraging them to keep active by riding a bike.  The school signed up and took part in ‘Hit The Ground Running’.

Autumn 2 - Each class concentrated on the same fit spurt throughout this half term; the data showed a 35% increase in the number of spurts completed within three minutes from the beginning to the end of the half term. The percentage of pupils able to run the mile rose from 23% to 39%.

Change 4 Life champions began leading games at lunchtime in FS and KS1, encouraging pupils to keep active. Pupils in these year groups enjoyed having structured activities to take part in and were able to talk about the role of the champions and why they enjoyed taking part in these activities.  

Pupil voice about the outdoor areas was very positive, with pupils stating they preferred learning in the fresh air where things were much more ‘hands on’. 

The leader board for ‘Hit The Ground Running’ was celebrated weekly on the newsletter and all pupils took part in the Sheffield Skipathon and Santa Dash.  Pupils were encouraged to share their participation with Active Advent on Twitter. 

Spring 1 - Data showed a 55% increase in the number of fit spurts completed within three minutes over the course of the half term; 58% of pupils are now able to run the mile which is a 19% increase since the end of autumn term.

The Change 4 Life Champions continued leading games in FS/KS1, and sports leaders began organising and leading structured physical activities in KS2. Pupil voice was very positive and showed that not only had behaviour improved during these times, but pupils were also much more aware of the impact of this physical activity.

Spring 2 - Data showed a 26% increase in the number of fit spurts completed within three minutes over this half of spring term; 71% of pupils are now able to run the mile; this represents a 13% increase since the end of last half term.  Scooters and pedal bikes were provided for the use of pupils in FS, Y1 and Y2 during playtimes to promote more physical activity; basketball hoops were installed in the infant playground to encourage further structured games during lunchtimes

The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

Autumn 1 - The deputy headteacher and PE leader joined the PESSPA Alliance as representatives for Locality D. An additional teacher was given responsibility for PESSPA alongside the existing PE leader, in order to raise the profile and enable additional experiences and events to be organised for pupils. 

Scores for ‘Hit The Ground Running’ were published each week in the daily newsletter to raise its profile and encourage participation; in the final week of half term, six of our classes were ranked within the top ten.  All pupils took part in the ‘Move More to Music Day’ in September, with Twitter being used to celebrate participation.

Autumn 2 - the PESSPA audit was jointly completed by the deputy headteacher and PE leader, which showed an improvement since the previous audit - 86% of the statements are now embedded or exemplary compared to 71% last year; both members of staff continue to take part in the PESSPA Alliance as representatives for Locality D. A PESSPA health check was carried out with the PE Leader and Forge Schools Sport Partnership.

The profile of PESSPA was raised with regular updates on the newsletter and via Twitter about ‘Hit the Ground Running’, Active Advent, ScootFit and the Skipathon.

Pupil voice about PESSPA was positive, with the children talking favourably about the Skipathon and their participation in competitive events.

Spring 1 - the deputy headteacher and PE leader held their first Locality D PESSPA meeting to share good practice and discuss how the leaders of each school could support one another going forward.  Pupil voice showed that structured physical activity at break and lunchtimes was having a positive impact upon pupils’ behaviour and energy levels. 
Spring 2 - the deputy headteacher and PE leader attended the most recent PESSPA Alliance network meeting and will be disseminating updates to Locality D after the half term. A representative of Allstars Cricket led an assembly for pupils in Y3 to encourage them to sign up to the England and Wales’ Cricket Board’s entry level participation programme.  Pupils in years 2-6 took part in the ‘Living Streets Walking Challenge‘ over the spring term, which was celebrated during an Active Assembly with a member of staff from Modeshift Stars.

Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Autumn  1 - All teachers completed a RAG rating for the different areas of PE to be taught this year and two sports coaches were allocated to support those teachers who identified a need to improve their practice.  Sports coaches worked alongside a Y1 teacher (RQT), Y2 teacher and Y5 teacher each week, helping them deliver PE, with a focus on the progression of skills in their specific unit: Y1/2 fundamentals and Y5 athletics.  At the end of this series of lessons, all teachers’ RAG ratings had improved. A yoga teacher worked with Y3 teachers in PE lessons, delivering yoga to their pupils and helping support their own professional development in this area of PE.

The two PE leaders attended the virtual PE Conference in September; as a result of this, all teachers then took part in research-led CPD focusing on the benefits of physical activity.

Autumn 2 - sports coaches worked alongside four teachers in Y1, Y2 and Y4, focusing on gymnastics, athletics and netball.  The yoga teacher worked alongside three Y5 teachers.  All teachers found that their confidence in the teaching of these units had improved by the end of term.  A Y5 teacher attended a day’s training in gymnastics which will support him in next term’s unit. The PE leader shared some SEND resources to support teachers in their delivery of lessons.

Spring 1 - sports coaches worked alongside teachers in Y2, Y3 and Y6, focusing on rugby and hockey. The yoga teacher worked alongside three Y4 teachers.  Confidence in the teaching of PE improved for all of these teachers.  Two teaching assistants attending Get Set Bike training so that they are able to support pupils using balance and pedal bikes. A teacher attending training in skateboarding skills so that he will be able to run a club later in the year.

Spring 2 - sports coaches worked alongside teachers in Y2, Y4 and Y5 for invasion games, tag rugby and gymnastics respectively.  The yoga teacher also worked with the three Y2 teachers.  All staff benefitted from this curriculum support and felt more confident in teaching these units going forward.

Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Autumn 1 - sports’ clubs restarted with two outside agencies offering yoga for KS1 and a dance club for Y3; sports coaches ran a Y5 basketball club and Y3/4 football club.   Y2 pupils took part in a session of bike-a-mentals in September, helping them improve their balancing skills. 

All pupils took part in the ‘Move More to Music Day’ in September, raising activity levels across the whole school.  

Classes signed up to and regularly took part each week in the ‘Hit The Ground Running Challenge’.

Autumn 2 - pupils took part in ‘Hit the Ground Running’ challenge each week, with their successes being celebrated on the newsletter.  Dazzle Dance and Kids Love Yoga continued with after-school clubs for KS1. The sports coaches ran a Y2 multi-skills club and a Y3/4 football club; one of our teachers ran a Y5/6 gymnastics club in preparation for a competition in the spring term.  The whole school took part in the Sheffield Skipathon - pupils found that their skills improved and some were inspired to continue at home. Y4 attended the local high school for a family festival with a focus on transition.  In December, all classes took part in Scoot Fit and the Santa Dash.   Pupils also took part in Active Advent at home, which was promoted and celebrated on Twitter.

Spring 1 - Dazzle Dance and Kids Love Yoga continued their after-school clubs and the two sports coaches ran a Y1 multi-skills club and a Y5/6 tag rugby club.  The school council gathered feedback about clubs currently on offer and created a wish list for future clubs, encouraging their peers to think about a wider range of activities. 

Spring 2 - Dazzle Dance and Kids Love Yoga ran after-school clubs as well as the two sports coaches running a multi-skills club in Reception and a football club in Y5/6.  A gymnastic club was also run by one of our teachers for pupils in Y3. Scooters and pedal bikes were provided in the yard at playtime for use by pupils in Reception, Y1 and Y2.

Increased participation in competitive sport

Autumn 1 - Forge’s new competition calendar was shared with all staff, with key contacts identified for each upcoming event.  The school enrolled teams in the local leagues for Y5 boys’, Y5/6 girls’ and Y6 boys’ football.  Interest was also registered for a local netball league.  

During the final PE lesson of half term, pupils in Y1 and Y2 each took part in a fundamentals intra-competition, led by the sports’ coaches; Y3 and Y5 each took part in an athletics competition.

Some Y4 disadvantaged pupils and the sports’ leaders attended a team building event in the local area; this was designed to allow those who would not normally take part in such an event, to have the opportunity to do so.  Y5/6 pupils attended a tag rugby competition against other local schools and came third out of the seven participating schools.  Y6 pupils took part in a local athletics competition and came third out of the five schools. 

Classes competed against each other each week in the ‘Hit the Ground Running Challenge’, and regularly featured in the top ten schools.

Autumn 2 - some Y3/4 pupils who would not normally be chosen for competitive sports, took part in a football festival with local schools; Y5 took part in and were runners up in the HotShots basketball competition; the school hosted a Y4 football league in which they drew in three games and lost one. Y5 girls took part in a futsal competition against local schools. Pupils in Y1 and Y4 took part in an intra-competition at the end of term, led by their sports coaches.

Spring 1 - although no inter-competitions took place this half term due to cancellations, year groups took part in intra-competitions with the sports coaches during the final PE lesson of the half term; one of the midday play leaders, together with the sports leaders, ran lunchtime sporting competitions for pupils in KS2.

Spring 2 - Y2 pupils attended a sportshall athletics tournament at the local high school with other schools in the area; Y6 boys took part in the football league, playing and winning all four of their games.  The sports coaches ran end-of-term competitions for Y2 and Y4 focusing on invasion games and tag rugby respectively.  Unfortunately, the Y4 orienteering competition that the school had signed up for was postponed due to adverse weather conditions.
