Effect on pupils’ PE & Sport participation and attainment

  3. Swimming standards have increased as a result of the qualified PE team. The target of 25m unaided is projected to be at 80% which is 30% higher than it has ever been.
  4. The percentage of pupils (Yr1-6), partaking in clubs/teams outside of school has increased from 34% to 59% over the last 2 years. This healthy active lifestyle is increasing every year, and in turn, it is improving the standard of primary school sport.
  5. Improved behaviour and school sport ethos being displayed through all areas of the curriculum. Core values like teamwork, respect, self-belief, determination and resilience are celebrated at every opportunity.

How we make these improvements sustainable

By providing the PE team with CPD opportunities, and allowing them to use their expertise to upskill other members of staff. The skills of the PE team will be disseminated across other primary schools in Coventry.

School sport will continue to be used as a tool to promote core values throughout the school. Pupils will be offered regular participation in extra-curricular events.

Willenhall Wolves FC has been created to give our K/S1 pupils, easier access into local sport outside of school. PE team will look to engage parents from the local community in running this provision for the years ahead.
