“The formation of the ASF committee was a great way of ensuring that a broad range of the pupils voices were heard and the ideas they came up with were so imaginative and at times amazed the staff!
There was definitely a change in attitude amongst the children that would normally have shied away or been reluctant to engage in PE activities. Teachers have also noted that their pupils fitness levels have improved over the last few months as many can run further and for longer on the track.
At the beginning of the process some of staff were anxious that the amount of extra time being given to physical activity would be detrimental to the other curricular subjects. However, they overwhelmingly found this not to be the case as the extra activities on a daily basis made the children more focused when they were working in class.”
