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, Miss Lauren Turner 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 2018-2019 our children enjoyed taking part in a number of competitive events, in sports including swimming, football, netball, cross country and athletics. Over half of Key Stage 2 children represented the school in competitive sports; this represents over three times the number who represented us five years ago. With very pleasing levels of engagement and success across many sports, there were also some notable highlights. The boys’ U11 team had phenomenal success, reaching the National Finals of three separate competitions and winning all of them; playing on the Wembley pitch in the EFL Kids Cup will undoubtedly be an experience the players will recount to their grandchildren in years to come! The winning of three national titles has never been completed by any school in England previously and it is a record that everyone involved with the squad this season will always be immensely proud of. Our cricket team won the southern regional finals, and our girls' football team were edged out of the national finals in the south east regionals.  In our most successful competitive year ever, we also qualified to represent our district (South Bucks) in 4 sports – swimming, girls’ football, netball and hockey.

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 2019-2020.
