Impact of Sports Premium :

- Inspire to Compete Club enables pupils to feel confident when they participate in inter – school tournaments.
- Participation in a larger number of tournaments, giving a greater number of pupils the opportunity to participate.
- Pupil enjoyment.
- Increased activity levels are now seen at lunchtime.
- The number of behavioural incidents at lunchtime have been lowered because pupils have learnt how to cooperate with one another and understand fairness in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
- An increased level of ‘structured’ play is seen as different sports are on offer.
- There are opportunities for children to develop leadership roles as play leaders.
Children are being taught that physical activity improves self-discipline and attitudes to learning, through resilience, a growth mindset, aspiration and being the best that you can be. A curriculum that promotes the notion of competition against oneself, the value of practice alongside the celebration of effort and achievement, overcoming perceived limitations (e.g. in outdoor and adventurous activities) and pupils as coaches and leaders to support, encourage and nurture each other, can be a key component of the personal development of pupils.
