PE and School Sport Action Plans 2014-18 for St Wilfrid’s RC Primary, York

Targets and action taken: Outcomes:

 Improve the effectiveness of curriculum PE lessons by focusing on equipping children with vital fundamental skills (agility, balance and co-ordination)


  •  Although children enjoyed PE at St Wilfrid’s before 2014, lessons were often too sports-specific and sometimes alienated less confident children, while not always challenging the more able. As a result, in 2014, we spent £3,000 of Sport Premium (SP) money on a new PE scheme for the whole school, and we had a whole school training day in January 2015 to help staff get to grips with the scheme. Real PE focuses on improving the fundamental skills of agility, balance and co-ordination through small step targets achieved through simple, fun but challenging games. It also encourages the children to adopt a ‘growth mindset’ approach to PE and sport, and this links in with our wider school approach to learning.
  • We encouraged coaches who came into school to use Real PE targets to teach their sport. This approach led to the school being nominated for an award by Create Development, the creators of Real PE, who recognised the impact we were making in getting our pupils more active and the innovative ways we used their scheme.


Increase the number of active children taking part in extra curricular sporting activity (lunchtime and afterschool clubs)


  • Using Sport Premium (SP) funding, we brought in a team of experienced coaches so we could offer children a wider range of sporting provision. Traditionally, St Wilfrid’s has had netball and football sporting clubs for around 30 children in UKS2 – around 10% of the school. After consulting with children and parents, we introduced clubs as diverse as fencing, archery, dodgeball, cricket, Zumba dance, gymnastics, cheerleading, street dance and basketball. We also introduced gender-specific clubs, such as girls’ football, as some of the girls told us that they were put off participating because they had to play against boys.
  • After consulting parents, we introduced a £10 per half term charge for after school clubs to ensure they remained sustainable in the long term. Parents who find this prohibitive are not charged


Increase participation in inter school competitions, giving children throughout the school more chance to access quality, competitive sport.



·         Through our membership of the York School Sports Network (YSSN) we have access to a year of inter school competitions against 30 schools in the west York area. Between 2014 and 2017 we attended every tournament organised by YSSN expect one (a KS1 netball tournament that clashed with a parents’ evening.) This is roughly 20 events a year organised by YSSN, on top of tournaments organised by other organisations, roughly another 20 a year.

·         We also encouraged YSSN to set up B and C team competitions, so that a wider range of children were able to take part in competitive sport. Outside YSSN, we also helped organise interschool competitions in sports and year groups not covered by the network. This included basketball, Year 3/4 football and girls’ football.



To meet the Government target of each child getting at least 30 mins of physical activity every day.



·         Introduce daily 2pm playground run, starting at 10 mins, in LKS2. Assess impact on learning and roll out across school?

·         Use the Koboca online monitoring tool to record current pupil physical activity. Children fill in at home, with parents. Use this to target children not meeting 30 min minimum. Also tells us how they would like to get more active and this will impact on club provision.

·         Identify ways of introducing short bursts of activity into non-PE lessons, eg: times table skipping.

  • Every class at St Wilfrid’s now has at least one, hour-long Real PE session a week, focussing on those key skills. The other PE session is sport-based, but incorporated a key skill being worked on for that half term, for example – basketball and balancing.
  • Children are now better equipped and more likely to take part in the wide range of sports available at St Wilfrid’s. They are also more likely to stick with those sports, rather than give them up after a few weeks because they find them too tricky.


Supporting evidence:

  • Year 6 pupil Niamh Tyssen, captain of the football team, represented the school at numerous competitions including rugby, swimming, netball, hockey and athletics. She said: “Sport is everywhere at St Wilfrid’s. There is something for everyone, no matter what their ability. Everyone is encouraged to have a try, starting with PE lessons, through to big competitions.”


  •  By summer 2016, 90% of children (Year 2 upwards) were taking part in a lunchtime or after school club. The school was running 12 lunchtime or after school clubs over the course of a week. We were now able to target our 10 % of ‘non-active’ children, asking them what clubs they wanted the school to run.
  • We also used SP funding to bring in a ‘Change for Life’ coach, who worked with these children during active sessions, with a focus on the importance of healthy eating. These pupils were also invited to run with Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes in an attempt to lead them towards a more healthy lifestyle.

Supporting evidence:

  • Parent Rachel Martin said: “St Wilfrid’s has a very clear belief when it comes to sport – encourage, experience and enjoy. I believe that the school gives the children a chance to be Jessica Ennis for a moment. The school wholeheartedly supports the belief that every child can have a go. The school may lack some silverware in the trophy department, but it gives the children something much more important: self-belief and confidence. They make each individual feel like champions, learning along the way some valuable life skills which will serve them well in later years.”


·         Many more children were able to access competitive sport. The school’s drive to increase participation and involvement was recognised at the Active York Sports Awards, where we won Active School of the Year in 2014 and 2016 (we were shortlisted in 2015). We were also recognised by North Yorkshire Sport, winning the Pupil Engagement in Physical Activity award in the Primary PE and Sport Premium Awards 2016 for North Yorkshire.

·         As a result of our regular participation in YSSN events, in 2014 we were able to successfully apply for a Sport England grant of £30,000 through the Primary Spaces fund. This enabled us to fund a small MUGA for our playground, which is used regularly to enhance PE and school sport at St Wilfrid’s.

·         As a result of our participation record, the school was awarded the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award in summer 2016 (and subsequently in 2017). We had attained Silver for the previous two years.

Supporting evidence:

·         Paula Stainton, chair of Active York, said: “St Wilfrid’s are very worthy winners of the 2016 sports award. What we liked so much is that sport and activity is fully engrained in the whole school ethos: children, staff and parents all doing their bit.”


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety Please complete all of the below:
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 100 %
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 70 %
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 70%
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way? No
