What impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation?

All children complete 2 hours of high quality PE each week with a dedicated PE HLTA or their class teacher. A PE TA has also supported PE across KS2 and has supported children being active at lunchtimes.  We use the Arena programme to ensure PE is progressive and sequential across the school.
