Overall Project Success 96% of projects were judged to have been successful or very successful.
Impact on Attitudes Teachers were asked to rate the extent to which they felt the following statements applied to their pupils. A percentage for each response was then calculated... After participating in their Sky Sports Living for Sport project, the majority (≥74%) of pupils were perceived to have: enjoyed the project, benefited from being involved; shown improved attitudes towards others; and engaged more in school life.
Impact on Reasons for Selection Teachers were asked to identify pupils rating for the reason they selected them before and after the project using the following rating scale: (1 = very poor, 2 = poor, 3 = average, 4 = good & 5 = very good) Reason for selection Number of pupils selected for this reason Mean rating before the project Mean rating after the project Change Self-confidence and self worth Achievement and attainment Achieving full potential Health and wellbeing Improvements were seen in all 4 areas with the highest change being for pupils selected because of low self-confidence and/or self-worth.
Likelihood of Future Involvement in Sky Sports Living for Sport Teachers were asked: ‘would you consider running another Sky Sports Living for Sport project in the future?’... Almost three quarters (74%) of teachers said they definitely or probably will consider running another Sky Sports Living for Sport project.
Opinion of Project Incentives Teachers were most positive about the athlete mentor visit as a project incentive (over 80% of responding teachers identified this as a large incentive) Teachers were asked: ‘How much of an incentive have each of the following been in encouraging you to run the project again next year?’
Opinion of Project Incentives Teachers were asked whether there were any other incentives or factors which would have encouraged them to make more use of the Sky Sports Living for Sport website... 7 teachers requested funding for projects; 20 teachers were not aware of all of the incentives or had not received all of them; Extra goodies for pupils were requested and suggestions included: starter packs, hats, mugs, key rings, flasks, key chains, pens; Other requests included: better press coverage, tickets for sporting events, free/reduced Sky subscriptions, prizes/accreditation for pupils, T-shirts for teachers.
