Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school.
Pupils have been supported to increase their awareness and participation in a range of healthy, active lifestyle opportunities within the academy. Here pupils are "alerting ready for learning" which is key part of every lesson. Pupils are using their 5aDayTV dance and yoga resource to help prepare them for learning and contribute towards their target of participating in at least 30 minutes physical activity a day.
Key indicator 2: The profile of PESSPA being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
Pupils at the academy have been supported to engage in physical activity across wider subject areas and learning opportunities. Maths of the Day and English of the Day resources offer pupils the opportunity to engage with learning in Maths and English through movement, physical activity and play. In Maths, the percentage of pupils making expected progress in KS1 increased by 11% between the Autumn Term and Summer Term assessment windows. The percentage of pupils making expected progress in KS2 increased by 6% between the Autumn Term and Summer Term assessment windows. In Literacy, the percentage of pupils making expected progress in KS1 increased by 12% between the Autumn Term and Summer Term assessment windows. The percentage of pupils making expected progress in KS2 increased by 14% between the Autumn Term and Summer Term assessment windows.
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
Staff continue to develop their skills in the delivery of Rebound Therapy across the academy. Pupils continue to benefit from the excellent provision that provides them with important opportunities to develop their physical skills and their ability to emotionally regulate by using these valuable movement opportunities. All pupils (with parental consent) in Yr. 3, 4, 5 and 6 experienced a block of Rebound Therapy either as part of a 1 to 1 session or group sessions.
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
Twenty-two pupils from across Key Stage 2 attended our annual Rock UK residential. The residential consisted of two nights and three days of OAA experiences (rock climbing and abseiling, raft building, archery, team maze, walk the plank, adventure pits, night walks and camp fires) that allowed pupils the opportunity to; Develop and master fundamental movement skills. Apply fundamental movement skills in a range of activities. Apply basic movements in a range of activities. Participate in competitive and cooperative physical activities. Develop a broad range of skills, learning how to link them to make actions and link sequences of movement and take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team. Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance. Enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other appropriately and with control, showing their ability to display expected behaviours within these types of activities. Compare performances with previous ones to achieve and demonstrate improvement.
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.
Medeshamstede Academy hosted the first inter-academy GAT SEND Sports Competition. Nethergate Academy and Purple Oaks Academy took part in a basketball tournament alongside pupils from Medeshamstede Academy. 6 Yr6 pupils joined in the competition and competed in basketball matches against pupils from across all academies.
