Sport Action Plan

Area for Improvement

To enhance and build on quality PE whilst reducing obesity levels.

Context

Where are we now?

The school benefits from having a full time PE Teacher who delivers high quality PE sessions once a week to each class. In addition, extracurricular clubs are available for children across the school with a range of invasive games, gymnastics and multi-skills. In order to maintain pupil engagement and participation levels in lunch time activities offered to children, we will continue to use pupil voice to ensure we are providing children with the activities they desire.'
Due to being a large school children and parents feel there is not a huge range of extracurricular sporting clubs which results in low attendance.

With obesity rates rising in young people this is something we need to address at Crook. The children could be classed as aerobically unfit and this needs addressing in a fun and engaging manner. However, the school are privileged to have a great sporting environment with numerous halls, a field and a yard. Furthermore, there is a lot of equipment available to deliver PE but is not used often enough.

 In 2018, 21/42 Year 6 children could

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

 

What do we want to improve?

The school will offer an increased number of sporting extracurricular clubs the aim will be for participation to be increased with key stage 1 and 2 continuously attending, these club will also be promoted on the school website and the dojo system. To address obesity rates and the poor aerobic fitness the school will be carrying out exercise activities during the week. Key Stage 1 will do a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) session 2/3 times per week, whereas Key Stage 2 will be doing the Mile a day challenge. This has been proven in different schools not only to improve fitness but also have a knock-on effect on achievement.

The school does benefit from a range of sporting equipment, however a percentage of the staff are not confident with using this equipment. Therefore training for the staff will be held to provide them with ideas and a bank of skills to deliver sporting sessions to a range of abilities.
