  • How has it increased participation rates in activities such as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics?

We have once again renewed Cyber Coach which is used in all classes – Wake up, shake up activity or in PE lessons. The programme has introduced an even larger range of different dance styles and activities including MFL (Spanish and French). EYFS are using this programme regularly as an introduction to music and movement.

We have extended our equipment for the sports leaders and lunchtime play leaders by purchasing new items such as balls, hoops and target games.

We have bought more outdoor equipment particularly aimed at EYFS.

A new school football kit has been designed and purchased.


  • Has there been an increase in competitive school sports?

We have been involved in a Year 5 indoor tag-rugby tournament held at Kingsway High School.

Prospect Vale Flyers successfully competed at Schoolfest. More cheer and dance competitions are taking place during the academic year and we are hoping to enter teams in both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 1.

The school football team competed at the Heald Green festival and links have been made with local schools to set up regular friendly matches. Annually we are invited to a local cluster group end of year football tournament.

There are more sporting competitions to be attended during the rest of the school year at both Kingsway High school and termly with Cheadle Primary School.


  • Has the physical education curriculum become more inclusive?

High quality opportunities are continuing to be offered across all Year groups. More children have become involved in joining in Lunchtime activities.

We have purchased a wider range of equipment catering for all ages and abilities.

We have been able to maintain the PE equipment and carried out repairs where needed.


  • Has there been a growth in the range of provisional and alternative sporting activities?

The children have been given the opportunity to try different physical activities using a variety of external sports providers. They have included Tri-golf with progolf coach Dave Cullen (Avro), Gymnastics with Jade Waldron (Inspired Gymnastics) and weekly continual sports activities with Dave Jones (Progressive sports). Dave Jones has worked with ALL year groups over the last 12 months and offered opportunities in ball handling skills and team sports, boxfit, dodgeball, ultimate Frisbee, cricket, athletics and racket sports.

There is the provision of staff time to identify needs and assess the impact of school sports on the children. Monitoring and assessment means some pupils are being identified in areas they may excel and are being introduced to appropriate opportunities outside of school.

Pupils from different year groups have been given the opportunity to take part in Extra-curricular clubs including Cheerleading (KS1 & KS2), athletics, dance, football, hockey, rugby, netball and cricket.


  • Is there improvement in partnership work with other schools and local partners?

Termly meetings with PE leaders in the cluster group have meant the arranging, participating and evaluating of half-termly sports events have been successfully achieved and has allowed more children to compete in sports competitions.

Links are continuing with Kingsway High school.

Year 5 took part in a ‘Healthy hearts’ workshop at Lancashire CCC.

An ‘Olympic Games’ event took place with Cheadle Primary.

Continuing strong links with outside agencies – details being passed onto children eg, Rising Stars Cheerleaders, Harriers running club, South Manchester & Inspired Gymnastics club.

A Year 4 trip to Debdale Park outdoor centre is booked for October 2016.


  • Has there been links with other subjects that contribute to the pupils overall achievement?

Confidence and leadership skills are continuing to increase.

Team work has promoted better listening skills and better social skills.

Working in groups has enabled the children to understand the importance of being able to take direction and take turns.

Team sports and PE continues to progress trust and consideration of others.


  • Is there a greater awareness amongst pupils of the dangers of obesity, smoking and other activities that undermine their health?

All children took part in a ‘Healthy living’ workshop with Stockport County FC.

We ensure the children are able to try different ways to keep healthy by trying different sports and activities.
