66% of the parents believe the child enjoys physical activity within school
39% of parents send their child to an after school sports club at school
48% of parents send their child to an after school sports club out of school
93% of parents state their child is physically active for at least an hour a day.
73% of parents would contribute financially to the cost of after school sports provision.
We have also found that parents would like more KS1 sports clubs and so we have recently launched a new KS1 sports activity for the 2nd half of the Autumn term after school for 2016.
Each year we carry out baseline testing of children across a range of sports in KS2. When comparing our 2015 and
2016 data we have found improvement in the skill, timing and agility of children with 60% of Year 3 children, 40%
of Year 4 children, 58% of Year 5 children and 53% of Year 6 children making progress on previous years scores. This
is an average progress measure of 53% across KS2. We aim to carry out baseline testing with KS1 in the coming year.
