Objectives/Success Criteria



Renew membership of the Waltham Forest School Sports Network (WFSSN)




Member of Local Sports Partnership in Borough, which provides us with access to competition, CPD Training and networking opportunities.

Mission Grove primary school has seen record levels participation at competition level for both KS1 and KS2. More children than ever have represented Mission Grove and this has resulted in increased extra-curricular participation in school.



Comprehensive Sports Club Program for KS1 & KS2 over 3 Terms (April 2015-April 2016)



Club participation & allocation reviewed termly

Extra-curricular clubs objective was to provide opportunities for up to 80% of our pupils to take part in sporting clubs outside of the curriculum.

To date we have had over 67% of children access some form of extra-curricular club during this period. We have seen the formation of a Girl’s only Basketball club, set up by girls from KS2. Mission Grove now also runs an Athletics club for children from Reception through to year Six as part of our Olympics Legacy.

Curriculum Swimming



October 2015- February 2016

59 Year 5 children and 86 Year 4 children went swimming for 20 hours in total.


This year we have taken our Year 4&5 pupils to the Aquatic Centre in the Olympic park for their swimming lessons. The facilities are first class and so has been the quality of the instructors.

Children have been able to participate in five one hour blocks over a four week period. This is a change from our previous provision of a weekly one hour slot over the school year.

Our swimming results are outlined below for both year groups.

£430 per week x 33 weeks = £14190 annually

North & South Site Lunchtime Football/Multi-Sports


Term time only

Lunchtimes on both sites

Provide children with a structured focus during their lunch hour.

As a result of our introduction of the Lunchtime league on the North Site and Multi-sports on the South Site playtimes are more enjoyable for both the children and Middays. Girl participation in lunchtime Football, on the North Site, has increased dramatically as a result of each league team requiring a girl on the pitch at all times.

On the South Site children have been able to play sports safely in a designated area which has reduced arguments and increased participation from both boys and girls.

£350 per week x 36 weeks = £12600 annually
