1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity

2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils.

5. Increased participation in competitive sport.
