INDICATORACTUAL IMPACT ON PUPILS' OUTCOMES 2020-2021
The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

Autumn 1 - PE lessons timetabled in the recovery curriculum, giving all pupils in Y1-Y6, two hours of PE each week.  Swimming lessons started for Y3 pupils.  No extra-curricular provision during this half term due to new routines being established, lack of space during lunchtimes and staggered end times.

Parents/carers were reminded of the packed lunch policy and any inappropriate foods were identified and parents/carers notified.  By the end of the half term, there were no further issues being encountered. 

PE Leader met with Forge sports coach to identify opportunities for physical activity across school and to train play leaders.   PE Leader provided online access to Sun Salutation Yoga in the classroom for all year groups. 

Y1 pupils had access to the Forest School Enchanted Garden for an afternoon session each week, promoting physical activity outdoors.  Y3 began the ‘Hit The Ground Running’ challenge.

Autumn 2 - Forge Partnership started a Y2 and Y5 Multi-Skills Club which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to government guidance during lockdown.   Y1 continued to access the Enchanted Garden - pupil voice praised the use of this.  The Creation Station for Y2-Y6 pupils was built.   Pupils took part in walk-to-school week and the Santa Dash on Christmas Jumper Day.  KS2 pupils continued with the ‘Hit The Ground Running’ challenge.

Spring 1 - no extra-curricular clubs due to lockdown.  Foresteers worked with KS2 pupils over a three-day period, which included the construction of a number of bug hotels in the Creation Station.  The PE Leader held a CPD session, focussing on PESSPA, to prioritise physical activity across school and provide staff with a range of available resources to support this.   This has included the use of Active Maths, Go Noodle and Sun Salutation Yoga in class. Pupils at home were provided with a range of remote learning, focusing on keeping active.

Spring 2 - the school signed up for Food for Life through Eat Smart Sheffield to encourage and support our families with healthy eating habits.  Further construction took place in the Creation Station, with large planters being built for pupils to grow vegetables.  The PE Leader signed up to the scheme of work, ‘Kids Love Yoga’, providing sessions for pupils of all ages.  PE lessons have consisted of one competitive sport, with the aim of raising pupils’ pulses.  Active Maths and active vocabulary activities were reshared with staff, together with a Physical Literacy activity pack - each year group leader was provided with a hard copy of these resources which have then been used as part of  ‘mindfulness breaks’.

Summer 1 - Forge Partnership re-introduced the Y2 and Y5 multi-sports clubs which were cancelled in autumn 2 due to government guidance. The Creation Station and other outside areas continued to be developed, with vegetables being planted in the former.  INSET for outdoor learning took place for all teaching staff in May.  The mile-a-day was reinstated for all year groups.

Summer 2 - Forge Partnership ran a Y4 rounders and Y1 multi-skills club; teachers ran a Y3 cricket and Y6 baseball club.  Pupils joined Sheffield’s Beat The Street initiative, with over 60,000 participants.  Activity levels were raised through pupils walking, running, scooting and cycling around the city, in order to earn prizes.  Pupils in KS2 used Active Maths to increase physical activity both within the classroom and outdoors.  The new outdoor areas (Creation Station and Creature Feature) were regularly accessed by pupils, once again, raising activity levels throughout the day.

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

Autumn 1 - PE Leader met with Forge sports coach to identify opportunities for physical activity across school.

Forge sports coach and PE Leader ran a staff meeting to introduce play leaders and to model for teachers how they were to be trained.  Forest School training carried out for all Y1 staff and pupils began accessing the Enchanted Garden weekly.

Autumn 2 - Pupil voice about the sports leaders showed that pupils were enjoying this new role in KS2. 

PE Leader attended the online sports conference and training about top tips for implementing PA across the curriculum.  As a result of this, the following took place: Google Classroom used to promote PA reflection with a PA diary in Y6 during their bubble closure. Roll out of YST Active Mind physical activity reflection and being physically active at home - Youtube channel at 5pm each school day.  Teachers implementing more active vocabulary and times tables activities in class.  Parents/carers/pupils notified about the 12 Days of Christmas and encouraged to take part.

Spring 1 - the PE Leader attended PESSPA improvement training from Forge and was then able to cascade this across school via a staff meeting.  A bank of comprehensive resources were provided to all teachers and they were talked through the different elements of physical activity and how the school has evaluated itself in each area.  This has given staff a better understanding of the role they play in the promotion of PESSPA across school. 

Spring 2 - Swimming has been booked for Y5 pupils, to commence next year.   A focus on physical activity within the school day has been encouraged with further resources having been provided to all teachers.   

Children were set a physical activity diary to record their activity levels at home, during the national lockdown, with the aim of increasing daily physical activity outside of the school day.

Summer 1 - the school signed up to Sheffield’s Beat the Street, due to begin in June.  Y3 hosted a virtual assembly from All Stars Cricket which also included some pupils being offered free places.  The PE Leader and Deputy Headteacher attended a virtual CPD course about meaningful PE and the importance of pupils being fully engaged in physical activity. The PE Leader also attended training to support him to make links with local sports’ clubs.

Summer 2 - increased outdoor learning for Y2-Y6 in the Creation Station and Creature Feature, and in the Enchanted Garden for FS and Y1 has helped improve physical activity across the curriculum.  Active Maths was included within lessons in KS2.  Pupils continued to run the mile each day on the school field. Participation in Beat The Street also raised pupils’ awareness of the need to be active, with regular photographs of pupils completing their challenges being tweeted by the school.  The PE Leader has signed up to the next PESSPA Conference in autumn term.

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

Autumn 1 - Deep dive documentation completed by PE Leader; Leader booked onto upcoming Sports Conference in November.   As a result of the recovery curriculum and new routines, there has not yet been any monitoring of PE lessons (booked for 6th November). Our Forest School practitioner trained all Y1 staff over a number of sessions.

Autumn 2 - PE Leader carried out learning walks in three year groups, which resulted in further ideas to keep pupils active during the main input. Pupil Voice showed that the new sports leaders were enjoying taking responsibility for running warm-up activities during PE lessons.

Spring 1 - Forge sports coach worked alongside a teacher in Y1 and Y5, focusing on sending and receiving and hockey respectively.  This has improved their own confidence in teaching these units of work. The PE Leader took part in a ‘deep dive’ of PE with SLT+, where he was able to demonstrate the impact of his leadership on teachers’ subject knowledge and confidence in teaching.  Teachers’ individual areas of expertise in PE were shared with all staff.   All teachers completed an evaluation of the subjects they teach best/least. 

Spring 2 - further team teaching with our sports coach continued for a couple of weeks for teachers in Y1 and Y4, which helped improve their confidence.   The PE Leader supported a number of teachers in teaching new aspects of the curriculum, with a particular focus in KS1.  The teacher evaluation feedback showed that the implementation of GetSet4PE, together with support from the PE Leader has enabled teachers to teach high quality lessons consistently.

Summer 1 - Forge sports coach worked alongside two Y1 teachers, focusing on invasion and orienteering. Concepts in PE were developed by the PE Leader and disseminated to all staff, in order to help pupils make meaningful links within their learning.  Fluency in team building was tracked by the PE leader to demonstrate progression.  Three members of staff attended a virtual CPD course centred around meaningful PE and the importance of pupils keeping active. 

Summer 2 - The PE Leader carried out learning walks in FS and Y4 which showed improved confidence for some teachers.  Those requiring further support were identified and put forward for work with the sports’ coaches in the next academic year.

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

Autumn 1 - after-school clubs did not run during this half term due to new routines being established, lack of space during lunchtimes and staggered end times.  Y3 pupils started swimming lessons (normally assigned to Y4). 

Autumn 2 - Forge started two after-school clubs in Y2 and Y5 for multi-skills which unfortunately had to be cancelled as a result of the second lockdown.  Online showcases from year groups showed pupils demonstrating their dance skills. A number of virtual activities were introduced, including ‘Virtually Boccia’, a virtual football competition in Y4 and virtual athletics for Y3 and Y5.  Pupils accessed Sun Salutation Yoga and Go Noodle in class.

Spring 1 - due to lockdown, there have not been any extra-curricular activities, although pupils have continued to access a range of active lessons in the classroom, including Yoga and dance.  The majority of pupils in KS2 who have attended school this half term have accessed outdoor learning alongside Foresteers.

Spring 2 - due to lockdown, there have not been any extra-curricular activities, although pupils have continued to access a range of active lessons in the classroom, including Yoga and dance.
