Impact 2015 to 2016

  • Children during the school day have increased their levels of physical activity in non-competitive sport and activities through the work of Sports Ambassadors and Play Workers at lunchtimes and playtimes;
  • From a very early stage in their education, children are provided with high quality movement and dance experiences so that activity levels are high;
  • St Alban’s sports teams routinely reach the finals/semi-finals of competitions entered;
  • Children regularly receive high quality coaching through team-taught PE lessons (the outcomes of which are evidenced in the success of our sports teams in competitive events);
  • Children can access a much wider range of sporting clubs than before through a combination of staff led clubs, specific clubs led by coaches employed to do this by the school (netball, hockey, cricket) and through additional companies offering privately run clubs.  As a result, children’s skill levels and amount of time engaged in physical activities have increased overall.
  • Pupil voice has had a direct impact on the school with tuck shop choices changed to promote healthier lifestyles (e.g. swapping chocolate milk for plain milk).  School Council pupils conducted surveys to raise the profile of healthy lifestyles and choices and have suggested improvements for the school to consider which will be implemented in the coming terms.  For example, children having school meals will have access to a salad bar at lunchtimes and will be encouraged to use this (due to be implemented during the autumn term 2016).

 

 

How the improvements will be sustainable in the future

  • The school is committed to funding PE and Sports development in order to maintain the quality of provision already established. 
  • The PE Ambassador role has also been created and will be maintained with on-going training provided by school staff for pupils taking this role each year.
  • Subject knowledge for teaching staff has increased further through team teaching and this will be applied to future lessons with the continuation of the Havant Academy coach in 2016 to 2017.
  • Equipment and changes to the playground and dining hall environments to promote healthier lifestyles will remain in place and future purchases are being supported not only by the school’s budget but also by the fundraising efforts of the parent community (HSA projects).
