The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.
For example, we can use our funding to:
- hire specialist PE teachers
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on how primary schools spend their PE and sport premium funding. As a result, we must publish details of how we spend our PE and sport premium funding.
To view the impact the PE and Sport Premium Allocation has had on our pupils’ learning in physical education, after-school sports clubs, local and regional sporting competitions and general attitudes to physical activity, please click on the links below:
Y6 Swimming Competency
During Y3 our children work on swimming lessons as part of their PE curriculum. They attend swimming lessons at the local swimming baths. Whilst completing their lessons they move through the swimming levels and are assessed, so that they are constantly developing the competency and confidence.
The children also work on safe self-rescue so that they can get themselves to safety in they get into trouble when swimming.
Below are the statistics the current Y6 cohort.
|Swimming Requirement||Number of children at requirement||Percentage of children at requirement|
|Swim a distance of over 25m confidently||43||62%|
|Swim using a range of strokes effectively||42||60%|
|Perform safe self-rescue in various water based situations||41||59%|
