How we are achieving our mission to improve the achievement of all children and young people through the power of PE and school sport
INSPIRE -  Autumn 2015/16

In the 2015/16 academic year to date (Sep-Mar) the Youth Sport Trust's impact in this area has been:

  • Case study evidence demonstrates that at one particular primary school who have used PE and sport as a successful vehicle for whole school improvement, 92% of pupils now make or exceed expected levels of progress compared to 71% of pupils in 2013/14
  • The difference in GCSE performance between 2011/12 and 2014/15 for schools who had been YST members continuously during that period was 7% better than those schools who had never been YST members
  • As a result of attending the National Talent Camp, 83% of young people reported that their awareness of the pathway to progress in their sport had increased either to a great or to some extent. Furthermore, three months after attending the National Talent Camp 78% of athletes reported that they are now performing at a higher level in their sport
  • “I’ve got three pupils involved in Inclusive Futures who have been working in a local primary all year...a new pupil joined the class that was blind & I think the teacher [thought] ‘we’ll just sit them at the side, they might be able to do wee bits’, whereas our leaders [said] no, this boy will be fine, we’ll adapt things for him. [He’s] now fully taking part in PE lessons working really well with the leaders”.  PE Teacher, Inclusive Futures, Glasgow
