Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

The Enrichment offer. Enrichment is a weekly activity chosen by children (five or six weeks per activity) to develop their Health and Wellbeing through a variety of activities. Children can select from activities such as Cheerleading, Boxercise, Kung Fu, First Aid, Cooking, Fencing and Futsal with the aim of developing their understanding and skills.

Mission Grove Primary School continues to commit to delivering 2 hours of curriculum Physical Education per week for each of our pupils across the school.

The embedding of gymnastics within the physical education curriculum across the school has been a real triumph. Teachers are generally confident and enthusiastic when delivering and children have benefited as a result.

Mission Grove Primary School is currently outside of the top ten achieving schools in Borough wide sports competitions. Mission Grove needs to develop a more systematic approach towards preparation for competition within school. During 2019-20 we aim to develop a more consistent program of intra-school competition so we can identify and develop the best athletes for their respective competitions in both KS1 & KS2.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below:

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?

N.B. Even though your children may swim in another year please report on their attainment on leaving

primary school.

% 54.5

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?

% 35.4

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?

%78.8 (water safety)

Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

Lunchtime Football on both sites



TAs swap fifteen minutes of lesson time to deliver their activity fifteen minutes before the afternoon session begins.




(Evidence) December 2018- Majority of teaching staff confidently delivered a sequence of gymnastics lessons in PE.

(Impact) Teachers are more confident when using specialist equipment within lessons. They also actively involve pupils in the setting up and putting away of equipment.

Evidence) March 2019- During the Summer, Autumn and Spring terms, of children’s selected Enrichment choices, 45% were made up of Health and Wellbeing specific activities.

(Impact) Children enjoy opportunities to choose their own activities within the Enrichment Hour. They also enjoy the high volume of Health and Wellbeing activities on offer. This continued to result in participation in the related breakfast and after school clubs at Mission Grove.

(Evidence) January 2019- On the North site year groups are assigned specific days for which the get to play football. On the South Children share the pitch daily with specific twenty minute slots allocated to girls only.

(Impact) We continue to see the benefits of organised lunch time sport. Children are fully aware of their slots and plan their lunchtimes around the schedule. The provision of a coach allows the sessions to be managed successfully and improves the enjoyment of the children taking part. It also enhances their physical development.

(Evidence) March 2019- The children absolutely love these sessions. Children are returning daily as well as encouraging their friends to attend.

(Impact) Children will develop their agility, coordination and fitness and have lots of fun while doing so.    

(Evidence) December 2018- Classes have a wide selection of workouts and children look forward to workouts especially in the EYFS and KS1 classes.

(Impact) Increased profile of physical activity being ‘fun’ and ‘exciting’ for our children from an early year helps to develop life long active children.

(Evidence) April 2018- March 2019- Children from years 1 to years 5 will have had a minimum of 5 hours swimming up to a maximum of 20 hours. Children travel by coach to the Olympic Park to swim in the Olympic Pool. This will provide an inspiring venue to learn how to swim. Year 1 had a taster lesson towards the end of the summer term.

(Impact) Year 2 Two Week Swimming Analysis- 87 children took part in swimming lessons. At the start of these swimming sessions all 87 children were not able to swim more than 5 metres.

At the end of their two week swimming sessions all 87 children participated. 46 (52%) of the children were water confident but still unable to swim more than 5 metres. 30 (34%) of children could swim more than 5 metres but less than 25 metres. 11 (12.6%) of the children could swim 25 metres or more.

Times tables checked termly to ensure two weekly PE sessions are allocated. Our Specialist PE Coach works closely with the Subject Lead to ensure consistency of coverage and progression across the year groups.

Continue to offer rich variety of exciting options within Enrichment hour by mixing and matching adults and activities across the entire school. This will allow children to continue to have access to the full range of offers.

Encourage staff to deliver activities that excite and inspire them and which will inspire the pupils in turn.

Identify members from the support staff who are willing to be trained up to eventually take on the role. This would provide us with potential for significant savings and more sustainability.

Encourage other TAs to set up clubs with a Health and Wellbeing focus during the Summer term and into the 2019-20 academic year.

Continue to use subscription of 5-a-day as the children and adults continue to use and enjoy participating in the workouts.

Ensure that login details are sent home so children can access 5-a-day outside of the school day. Also promote the availability of 5-a-day at home to parents and children.

Children are able to swim for free in Waltham Forest as well as sign up to swimming lessons across the Borough. Mission Grove will redouble its efforts to signpost children and parents to these locations and encourage greater participation.

Provide opportunities for our more able swimmers to join local clubs and represent the school at the Borough Swimming Gala.

At Mission Grove we continue to use a House Points reward system in school based on Olympic values to raise sporting aspirations; foster teamwork and celebrate attainment.

We celebrate nationwide events such as National School Sports Week to raise attainment through personal improvement. Children are encouraged strive to be the best they can be.

Mission Grove invites Inspirational Speakers to visit the school to inspire pupils to harness the power of sports to help make a positive difference in their life and of those around them.

Our school reward system is based on House Points. Houses are named after five British Olympians (Ennis, Holmes, Farah, Wiggins and Peacock). Children are assigned a house team from Reception and continue throughout their primary journey.

At Mission Grove we promote and celebrate the Olympic Values of Friendship-Respect and Excellence along with the Paralympic values of Determination-Inspiration-Courage and Equality. We use these as a basis to challenge and inspire pupils across the school. National events are promoted and celebrated during whole school assemblies.

During the Spring term we were visited by the owner of our local football team, Leyton Orient.


Responsibility of whole school from middays to head teacher to drive the system.

(Evidence)- March 2019- Weekly assemblies are led by members of the School Leadership Team to celebrate achievements. Achievements and certificates are recognised and celebrated. Children also receive frequent updates on House Points standings, both in classes as well as across year groups to foster closer bonds within houses.

(Impact) Children have developed a greater understanding of the Olympic values and how they can help to drive us towards reaching our goals. House Points system also acts as a great behaviour management tool, allowing children greater access to their learning.

(Evidence)-July 2018

Our pupils participate in National Sports Week initiatives, which culminated in our annual Mission Grove Sports Day. Children from Reception to Year 6 took part in a variety of challenges and scored points based on their attainment as well as their Olympic and Paralympic values.

(Impact) Sports Day provides a culmination of the entire year’s effort for our five houses. The winning House is announced as well as their ‘wow’ prize. Parents, staff and pupils all share in the spirit of the occasion. 

(Evidence)-February 2019

Our pupils from year six had a talk with Texas businessman and Leyton Orient owner Kent Teague.

Impact) Mission Grove strengthened its relationship with Leyton Orient.

Continue to provide house winners with ‘wow’ rewards to celebrate their success. Last year house winners had a coach trip to Southend by the Sea.

Continue to develop links with local clubs and secondary schools to provide children with opportunities to further their sporting interest. Also seek out opportunities to bring high class sporting events or performers to the children to help build and sustain interest.

Continue to develop relationships with local and reginal organisations which provide opportunities to improve the experiences of our pupils.

Mission Grove continues to offer an extensive extra-curricular Sports Program for children in Reception to Year 6. This provides children with the opportunity to sign up to a variety of clubs each term.

Bike-Ability is available for pupils Year 3 through to Year 6. Children go from beginners cyclists in Level 1 to confident road users by the end of Level 3.

Update the club signing process to allow all parents to access via our School App.

Promote the participation in Bike-Ability training to develop healthier pupils and confident cyclists.


School has previously bought bicycles and helmets as part of the Bike-Ability offer.

(Evidence)- January 2019- Parents have been able to sign up for clubs via the School App. This has allowed us to create designated club registers with waiting lists when necessary.

(Impact) Children no longer miss out due to parents being unable to attend sign up evenings. Children therefore are able to attend activities they really want to participate in.

(Evidence)- February 2019- larger proportion of children riding to school.

(Impact)- Successfully installed cycle racks to meet the increasing demands of cyclists.

Next step will be to refine our procedures to make sure parents are only signing up to clubs they fully intend for their child to attend. This will maximise take-up.

Continue to target staff that share keen interest in specific sporting activities and provide them with CPD opportunities that will lead to running their own clubs.

Develop more cyclist able to pass Level 3 and cycle confidently on the road.
