Holy Family School has a long, and well established, reputation for its commitment to Physical Education. Organised, competitive sport helps to develop pride in personal performance, and encourages resilience. It actively fosters the importance of team work and the value of honest self-evaluation.

The PE Satisfaction Survey
The questionnaires pupil feedback was very positive, the children enjoy PE, they enjoy the variety of experience and they enjoy being able to see that they were making progress.
Children from Y3 – Y5 were presented with a range of questions to assess their opinion of PE.
In Y3, 5 & 6 children completed the questionnaire which took place in the first week of June 2017.
In Y4 and Y5 fifty five children from each year group responded.
For the purpose of this exercise we bracketed answers in the 4/5 range together; the 2/3 range together and the 1’s as a class of their own. Here are two examples.

The school was not over reliant on Year 6 pupils in sports teams so there should be continued successes in future years.
Next Steps: Next year Warwick University students would be coming in to test every child’s fitness and would create a fitness profile of the school. This fitness profile could be used to track children’s progress against a baseline.
In the Academic Year 2015-16, the government provided the school with £9,800 PE funding to enhance our provision.
During the academic year 2015-16 we have used the Primary School Sport Premium to enhance our curricular provision by:
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
As a School we have broadened the scope of extra curricular activities by employing specialist coaches, including those from Coventry City Football Club, so that we may offer Dance, Tennis, Cricket, Netball, Boxing, Cross Country, Football (Y1-6), Netball (Y3-6), Dodge Ball and Basketball. We liaise actively with coaches and parents to ensure that children eligible for Pupil Premium receive coaching in their preferred sport at no cost to themselves. We identify our more able sports boys and girls in KS2 before offering them a free Multi Skills class during the Summer term.
At Holy Family we firmly believe in the benefits of competitive sport. We enthusiastically encourage a spirit of fair play and believe that competition teaches children how to deal appropriately with success and failure. It encourages teamwork and mutual respect, as well as reinforcing the need for hard work and self discipline. Because of this belief we have always encouraged our pupils to compete, whether it be against others or themselves. To this end we engage in a range of competitions across a series of sporting disciplines.
Our football and netball teams compete in the:

Children are assessed twice in each school year in a series of fixed activities. Each child's attainment is recorded individually and will be maintained throughout their time in our school. We are currently exploring practical ways to provide measures of each year groups average progress so that overall impact may be analysed.
We will strive to give every child in our care a range and breadth of opportunities in Physical Education. We aim to challenge and extend the most able, as well as supporting those who find P.E. a daunting prospect. We will do everything possible to help your children enjoy and appreciate this life enhancing area of the curriculum.
