    The following 11 primary schools had an audit of their PE and sports provision (including PE lessons, extended day activities, after-school clubs and sport provided by external suppliers) in 2014:

    Grafton, Ambler, Montem, Rotherfield, Pakeman, Duncombe, Gillespie, Newington Green, Winton, Hanover, Canonbury

    Each audit took a week in the school. The cost of the audits (£500 each school) was met from the Future Zone budget.

    Audits were run like this:

    1. Meeting with Headteacher – to understand the schools action plan for sport, the school values, and the current situation of PE and sport provision in the school

    2. Headteacher to brief all PE/sport suppliers on my role

    3. A week in the school, observing and evaluating all sport, PE, pre-school, during school and after-school, including competitions, playtimes, lunchtimes, clubs, swimming etc.

    As part of the audits, quantitative data from pupils was collected. This was captured through questionnaires, and was used to measure a baseline of sport/PE provision and delivery in the schools. Over 1500 pupil questionnaires were complete and these provide an extensive view of pupils in FZ.

    Once school audits were complete, the results of the audit were presented to the school’s SLT in the form of a pdf report document and also a powerpoint presentation and discussion. In addition, a staff meeting was held at most schools were Mark Carter presented key findings and issues were discussed with staff (teachers, TAs and coaches).

    There was some early impact of the audit process, for example:

    Newington Green: Appointed an assistant to the PE Co-ordinator to give the PE Co-ordinator more time to introduce new clubs and improve PE.

    Winton: Trialled a new format for PE where children from across year groups where grouped together for PE according to ability and interest.
