Over the last academic year, PE has developed significantly. It has a high profile in school. The use of specialised coaches to deliver lessons on a Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon has not only raised the profile of PE but also helped to improve staff confidence and skills. Both parents and children have reported that they are happy with the changes that have happened with PE over the last few years. The children enjoy PE. Many lessons that I have observed have been outstanding (according the OFSTED criteria) and progress has been noticeable. A strong foundation for PE is now in place and this can be further built on in the coming years. With a focus on fitness, the children are now aware of the impact that PE and sport have on their bodies. The staff have been given idea of how to teach fitness and monitor it within their class. The children have started to show measureable improvements in their fitness which will hopefully progress over the next year. The uptake of extra-curricular activities has increased with the following free clubs that have been offered over the course of the year:

· Tennis

· Y 5/6 Football

· Y3/4 Football (mixed)

· High fives

· Lunch time social support group

· Kurling (KS1)

· Athletics (KS1)

· Multiskills

· Y5/6 Girls Football

· Kurling (KS2)

· Athletics (KS2)

· Change for Life

As well as this, the children have also been offered the following clubs for a minimal payment:

· Judo

· Tri Golf

· Multi Skills

· Olympics

· R – Y4 football

· Fencing

The school has entered many competitions in the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley partnership, achieving success in many of these. The football team reached the Lancashire finals and other teams medalled in many sports. The Y4/5 cricket team reached the Lancashire Finals and the Y3/4 Quad Kids team reached the Lancashire School Games finals.
