Key achievements to date:

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

All pupils engage in 2.5 hrs of PE/exercise per week as a minimum. This is achieved through PE lessons and structured use of playground space and activities at play and lunchtimes. 
All pupils have experienced additional exercise activities in addition to the above e.g. yoga, Indian dancing, nature walks as part of the school’s wellbeing plan.
Additional sports coaching is being provided by West Ham, supporting teacher’s knowledge and skills. The school’s PE Lead regularly team teaches with staff and teachers have the opportunity to observe his lessons. He monitors all planning to ensure consistency, progression and challenge.
Pupils attend a wide range of sporting events e.g. National hockey championships, tennis at the Masters finals and Wimbledon, cricket at Lords to inspire them.
A wide range of active after school clubs are in place.

Further improve playtime provision to provide wider range of active options for pupils.
Purchase additional top up swimming lessons.
