Sports at Greenfylde 2017-2018

Following on from our second Gold School Sports Kite Mark earlier this year Greenfylde has continued its commitment to develop sports for all by achieving our third consecutive Gold Award for School Sports. We believe sport is an integral part of our holistic provision and not only supports an active lifestyle but also helps the children to develop self-esteem and self-worth. Sports are as varied as the characteristics of our pupils and for this reason we try to offer as wide a range of provision as possible from swimming to rounders, street dance and archery.

Bob Brunt and Germaine Tuff have remained as a weekly presence at the school for sport. By having the coaches work alongside the classroom staff, staff skills and confidence in delivering PE has developed and in having this regular CPD (Continuing Professional Development), staff are up to date in the teaching and learning of PE for the pupils.

This year we have continued out focus on our engagement with community clubs and have seen participation by our pupils’ increase, particularly in taking part with Ilminster Cricket and Football Clubs. Our inter-school competitions continue to be an important aspect of our provision and where these have now existed we have continued to run these ourselves and offer them to other local schools. We also continuously look for opportunities for new activities.

All our Year 4s have again achieved our Level 1 Young Leaders’ Award for Sports and have arranged multi-skills festivals for younger children in school and between schools in our CLP (Community Learning Partnership) as well as assisting our pre-school with their Sports Day. We have also supported our Middle Schools and Upper School by inviting their young leaders to gain experience helping at our sporting events.

We continue to use our dance and drama studio and our on-site swimming pool so that all pupils have swimming lessons. Our sports are varied and still include activities such as archery and indoor Kurling and we believe this continues to help our pupils appreciate how sports are inclusive for all.

Last year we wanted to maintain our provision as we felt we had reached a high standard that met the needs of our school community and we are very pleased that this has been attained. Bob Brunt has been working with groups of pupils to develop pupil voice and this has allowed the children to participate to an even greater extent in curriculum planning. This year we have focused on key sporting qualities – communication, safety, enjoyment. co-operation, responsibility and organisation – equipping our pupils to be team players and young sports people who have a clear understanding of sportsmanship for themselves and others. Our World Cup celebration brought all of these skills together and provided a celebration of our commitment to sport and its values across the school.

Next year we will continue to maintain our provision but still seek any further opportunities that can give more breadth of opportunity and experience for our pupils in sport.

The majority of our year groups have seen participation rates maintained due to the breadth of opportunities offered. We now have the data available to make a five year comparison and this shows just how far we have come with sports provision at Greenfylde.

Participation varies due to the number of opportunities available for competition. This year there has not been an opportunity for whole cohort Y4/5 events with our local Middle School which has reduced opportunities for our Year 4. As one of the largest cohort groups locally we can be limited and can evidence where we have taken the lead in holding and running different festivals and events.

This has remained a focus for this year and it is pleasing to see the increase in our pupils’ participation in community sports. As a school we are fortunate in having a local rea that offers a wealth of opportunities for our pupils and in some cases children use these instead of school based opportunities as their extra curricular clubs. We promote opportunities in the community to our pupils so they can access as wide a range of sports as possible.​
