We have participated in more competitions, accessed a range of sports we would never have, the staff have been trained and are confident in teaching areas of PE they once found difficult, the pupils have accessed expert sports people in the local community and beyond which has enthused them about sport and the children are excited to be active through initiatives such as GoNoodle, fitness challenges and Mile a day.
