Case study: Head Teacher hails impact of Forever Sport programme

Coniston Primary School Head Teacher, Alan Walters has praised the impact of Bristol Sport Foundation's Forever Sport programme. 

Forever Sport is a primary school PE and sports coaching programme, delivered in schools across the region. The programme also helps with the pressures of assessment and investing in the upskilling of staff. 

Coniston Primary School's Mr Walters described the programme as 'second to none'.

"I have worked with Forever Sport for six years, introducing the programme to five schools during that period. The service they provide is second to none. The way the coaches engage the children and the staff through fun, inclusive lessons and help them develop their core skills has completely transformed school sport at Coniston.

"I can honestly say that the behaviour and attitudes of our children have improved across the school since we started our partnership with Forever Sport. Children of all abilities make progress and to see some of our most vulnerable children leading from the front is credit to the way lessons are delivered.

"The coaches are excellent and the culture they create has spread to other areas of our curriculum. The two-coach model that Forever Sport rightly prides itself on was highly praised in our recent Ofsted ‘deep dive’ in December 2019.

"Ofsted identified the progression between year groups, the confidence of staff to deliver lessons and the aspiration and resilience shown by the children. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership next year and beyond."
