Impact

The impact of spending the Sports Premium in this way has been seen as follows:

Continued membership of the MSSP has allowed the school to provide the opportunity for children to experience competitive sports at Cluster, Borough and London wide level.  The school has fielded teams in all competitions offered by the MSSP.

The lunchtime clubs run by the Sports Specialist have prepared our children to compete in the competitions run by the MSSP.  This has given our children more confidence and ability to compete against other schools, and to improve their own standard of sporting ability.

Our weekly Fit for Fun club has seen an increase in the number of less active children enjoying physical activity.

The focus of our Healthy Schools Week was to promote exercise through dance and we were able to organise specialist activities to introduce all the children to various forms of dance to keep fit.

The outdoor facilities at our school are a valuable resource to our school community which we have maximised by allowing the MSSP to use our facilities for Cluster tournaments in football and rugby.  We have also opened up our facilities for neighbouring schools to play their matches in the Merton 9 a side football league and also allowed the Merton Representative team to play their home matches at our school.  We have maintained our cricket pitch in good order so that we can provide quality coaching and practice facilities for children at our school and to the wider community by allowing local cricket clubs to use the facilities at weekends.

We have audited our staff and identified areas of need for CPD.  Staff have attended CPD offered by the MSSP and this has led to improvement in the quality of observed PE lessons.

Staff have been covered to allow them to be released from classroom duties so that they can accompany children to every sporting event offered by the MSSP this year.
