Further notes on what this has meant for our school in 2019-20:


  • The school was on track to achieve the Gold level in the Schools Games Mark Awards again but was unable to complete this due to Covid-19 closure. This will not prevent the school achieving Platinum level in 2022 (4 years consecutively achieving Gold Level)
  • Year Six Swimming Outcomes July 21:100% of pupils can swim 25m unaided; 100% of pupils can use a range of strokes; 100% of pupils can perform safe self-rescue in different water situations. Not all other year group received swimming instruction this year due to pool closure (maintenance and Covid -19 restrictions.)
  • The new all weather pitch has been installed but we are still awaiting fencing to secure this area due to supply disruption of essential materials.
  • All pupils were able to engage in additional sporting activities planned for last year (including full day at Thorpe Woodlands for each class)
  • Pupil attainment and progress figures for the Summer Term 21 showed that  due to Covid 19 school closure disruption, pupil attainment in PE had dropped by 18% (pupils reaching expected levels). A return to pre-Covid levels of attainment is anticipated by the end of Summer Term 22.
