Primary Stars contributing to an ‘Outstanding’ PE Programme

Nottingham Forest Community Trust is delighted to report excellent feedback from one of its partnered Primary Schools, as the Easter break approaches.

St Ann’s Well Academy have been working with Nottingham Forest Community Trust over the last five years, seeing a massive transformation within their students through PE provision, with the Trust working alongside the Primary School to devise a PE plan specific to the needs of the curriculum.

Chris Ibbett, Curriculum Lead for PE and Sport said “Nottingham Forest have been key in helping us to design our curriculum and supporting me in my role, over time we’ve been able to put together a really outstanding PE programme.

“We’ve been really impressed with their willingness to support our needs and how adaptable they’ve been too that, and we’ve reached a point now where it’s a really exciting offering for our students.

“I strongly believe in the ability and skills of our students if they are given the right opportunities and expectations to drive them through, and that’s where Forests’ Primary Stars offering has been key in both creating and implementing ideas and embedding them within the day to day curriculum which emphasises the schools core values.

“Each term focusses on a new theme here and working with the Forest team, we’re able to strip that back and really identify the key skillset and knowledge which children need to know to flourish across the year groups.

“That focussed planning and delivery approach has an impact in the classroom too, a key thing we’ve done is look at appointing Sports Leaders and offering opportunities and events you don’t regularly get at Primary level – Sports leaders in particular brings focus to the students, they know they have to focus within lessons in order to reap the rewards and responsibilities.

“I couldn’t recommend Nottingham Forest Community trust more highly, the staff are incredibly helpful and have helped us to really transform our delivery. I’m a firm believer that schools should really own their PE offering, working with Forest helps you to do that and the results are clear to see”
