What impact has the school seen on pupils’ PE, physical activity, and sport participation and attainment, and how will the improvements be sustainable in the future?

Last year (2018-19), Mr Jiggins, the school P.E. Co-ordinator and Sports Coach, successfully completed his National Association of P.E. Level 6 course. This course was specifically designed to upskill primary school teachers, HLTAs and TAs to become P.E. specialist and raise standards through high quality P.E. teaching in their school.
 

This year, Mr Jiggins, under the direction of Mr Miracapillo (Headteacher) and Mr Regan (Extended Curriculum Leader), has continued to share his expertise with all staff by team teaching high quality P.E. lessons once a week in every class, specifically looking at gym skills, hockey, tennis and pupil fitness. Mr Jiggins also carried out administrative tasks associated with the school’s competitive sports teams and non-competitive clubs, under the direction of Mr Regan

The sports grant has allowed cycling to be a key focus. Children from years 4 through to year 6 have taken part in the National Bikeability scheme. They worked hard with outside tutors and received a range of awards according to their competency on their bicycles. 100% of the Y4 children completed the 'Bikeability' / 'Balanceability' course; 12 children learned to ride a bike for the very first time! In Year 5, 94% of children passed or achieved Level 1 bikeability (the Year 6 course did not run this year due to Covid-19). 

 

Through the P.E. and Sport Grant, we have ensured that every pupil takes part in at least two hours of P.E. a week, with many children doing far more. New sports introduced last year (hockey and tennis) have continued, along with the 'daily mile' (twice a week) walk in Reception. Last year, three quarters of our children were involved in a sports club after school and over half of them represented Westbourne in an inter-school sports event. Participation in sport is extremely high and success in inter-school competitive sports fixtures is celebrated regularly with the whole-school community.

 

The children are keen to achieve their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum badges, awarded by Senior Leaders when they represent the school respectively: 5 times, 15 times, 30 times and 40 times during an academic year! In the year 2019-20, 70 children have received the Bronze Award; 17 children the Silver Award and 1 child the Gold Award (this is with the school year cut short due to Covid-19!).

 

Each year, we award a ‘Sports Boy’ and ‘Sports Girl’ Award, presented to a Y6 boy and a Y6 girl for their outstanding contribution and attitude to sports throughout their time at Westbourne.

 

Each term, we run an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs, including Girls’ Football, Dance, Table Tennis, Basketball, Boys’ Football, Gymnastics, Hockey, Netball, Tag Rugby, Indoor Athletics, Tennis, Multi Sports, Cricket, Yoga, Hand Ball, Rounders, Quad Athletics, Dodgeball, Cross Country and Cycling.

 

As a result of this wealth of initiatives, the school gained its 5th consecutive Gold Kitemark in 2018 as recognition of its outstanding PE and Sport provision. Last year, we were awarded the Platinum School Games Mark - the first school (Primary or Secondary) to have achieved it in Sutton and is valid for two years! This year, we have also been awarded our ‘Virtual Games Mark’ for 2019-2020.

 

The school has continued to increase it whole-school participation in active sport even further engaging with the ‘Get Active Programme’, an evidence-based, three-part programme led by an Olympic/GB Athlete to educate and motivate staff, children and parents about the benefits of being active and its positive impact on healthy lifestyles and achievement. The programme is based on research conducted over the past 10+ years, showing the significant importance of physical activity in brain development, and - as a result - the strong link between physical fitness and academic. 

 

Following an inspirational visit by a GB athlete for a staff meeting, the school have introduced daily fitness slots, a ‘Get Active’ assembly and reached out to the children/families to send in photos of the children participating in activities outside school (see photo below of enormous school display!). We have also introduced fitness challenges to measure and track the improvements in children’s fitness across the school. Each term, the children complete a bleep test and vertical jump test and record their score! The school has also invested in an outdoor gym, which will be installed ahead in preparation for September 2020.
