How the improvements will be sustainable in the future:

Our consistent approach ensures that we continue to improve our pupils’ sporting achievements each year that they are attend our school, giving them the best possible chance to develop a lifelong passion for PE & sport. We have been the top performing primary school in Swindon and Wiltshire for the past five years and aim to retain our title every year.

How many pupils within Year 6 can do each of the following:
