Some data about our PE and Extra Curricular Clubs:

  • June 2016 – 80% of KS2 participated in at least one sports club during the year. 
  • Nearly 40% participated in two or more extra-curricular clubs.
  • Impressively, almost half of KS2 (47%) have represented the school at either, cross country, swimming, football, athletics, rounders, kwik cricket and tag rugby. This is a fantastic achievement.
  • 31% of KS2 participate in a club outside of school, including football, karate, boxing, swimming and dance troops.
  • So, only 20% of children are not currently active in an extra-curricular club. We are aware of who these children are and next year, we will continue to encourage and offer sports clubs, which will engage these current non-participants.
  • Meanwhile, in KS1, 82% of the children have participated in one or more extra-curricular sports club with 37% participating in two or more. These percentages are high due a more sports clubs being offered to KS1 this year, including splash, dance, rounders and football. This has meant that only 18% have not participated this year.
  • Outside of school, the children are continuing to engage in a range of sports including: troupes, dance, football, boxing, beavers, karate and gymnastics. 28% of KS1 take part in a sport outside of school.
