In 2016-2017, 64% of children from KS2 participated in Harrow School sports competitions, including:

  • Year 6 boys’ football
  • Years 5 & 6 girls’ football
  • Year 4 (boys and girls)football tournament hosted by Watford Football Club (part of their Primary Stars initiative)
  • Harrow Schools’ Swimming Gala
  • Harrow Schools’ Netball tournament
  • Cross-country running (including community events)
  • Harrow Schools’ Gymnastics competition
  • Harrow Borough Sports (athletics competition)

Across all competitions, Cannon Lane Primary school was successful in being placed for many events; most notably there was significant success at the swimming gala and gymnastics competitions.

Increased participation in competitions has raised the profile of sport in school and has encouraged more children to put themselves forward to take part. This academic year we are targeting a further 10% uptake in participation across KS2 in a variety of extra-curricular sporting activities and competitions. Children’s confidence and self-esteem has been raised by our PE and school sport notice board which is regularly updated with photos and results from competitions and clubs. A recent survey showed that 70% of children were more likely to join a club if they were to ‘appear’ on the noticeboard. This is evident in the increase in uptake of a variety of sports clubs being offered at Cannon Lane.

There has also been a significant increase in the number of children taking part in community sports competitions outside of school – including cross country running. For example the Moor Park 10K Fun Run which was very popular amongst children and parents.

Children in Key Stage 2 were taught by a specialist gymnastics coach throughout the year alongside their class teacher. 90% of class teachers surveyed reported an increase in confidence in teaching gymnastics as a result of this. Children in lower KS2 were taught by a specialist football coach and again teachers reported they felt more confident to deliver that part of the curriculum.

Children in Key Stage 1 were taught by specialist PE coaches during the year. These coaches also provided structured activities for children to take part in during lunch times which significantly increased levels of physical activity during the lunch hour. Class teachers reported that children were far noticeably happier in the afternoons and there were fewer incidents of inappropriate behaviour at lunchtimes due to the structures activities that had been provided. Children from the School Council report that lunchtimes are far safer and more enjoyable with sports coaches leading activities.

In September 2016, Cannon Lane School was awarded the Bronze School Games mark in recognition of our commitment to PE and School Sport and the increased levels of participation in school.
