How did the Sports Grant make a difference to the PE and sport participation and attainment of pupils? 

The Sports Grant has enabled us to work with a number of sports professionals during the year. With a curriculum which includes a wide range of activities, all supported by a progression of skills and differentiation, our children's fitness, level of skill and enjoyment continues to increase as they are taught and coached by a range of talented sports people, including our lead coach, Mrs Lucy Godfrey. Our swimming coach, Mrs Julie Matthews ensured that swimming teaching for all year groups was of the highest possible standard. All coaches work alongside our experienced PE staff, ensuring that their knowledge and skills are continually improved as part of ongoing professional development. 

During 2017-2018 our children enjoyed taking part in a number of competitive events, in sports including swimming, football, netball, cross country and athletics. 64% of Key Stage 2 children represented the school in competitive sports; this represents four times the number who represented us four years ago. With very pleasing levels of engagement and success, there were also some notable highlights: we qualified to represent our district (South Bucks) in 5 sports – swimming, girls’ football, netball, hockey and tennis. Our girls' football team scaled new heights last year. Having won the County Finals in November, they travelled to Greenwich in March to represent Buckinghamshire in the South East Regional Finals. Winning the Regionals, they went on to the National Finals at the Ricoh Stadium in Coventry where they were just beaten in the final, making them the second best girls’ U11 team in the country. 

Sport continues to be an important part of the life of the school, and a large number of our children and families; we look forward to continuing to increase the impact of the funding and using it to maintain our high standards and broaden the sporting curriculum even further in 2018-2019.
