Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant, how we allocate the funding and the impact that this has had for the current year and for previous years.
Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. We have allocated the funds in a way which is aimed to develop staff skills and children’s passion, enthusiasm and capability for physical activity encouraging the development of more healthy, active lifestyles. In this way, we are making a sustainable impact which will last beyond this academic year and that we can build upon in the future. For example, the Active Play resource will be available to use at every lunch, break and after school. By training staff in playground leaders or MSAs to lead lunch time active play we are ensuring the impact is sustainable.
For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Our data for 2016/17 was 75% of our Y6 pupils (15/20) met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum.
Our Year 6 cohort for 2017/18, 53% (8/15) met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum at the end of Year 5 in July 2017.
We have decided that we will use some of the PE and Sports Premium to provide top up swimming sessions in the summer term 2018 over and above the National Curriculum entitlement for the Year 6 pupils to increase the % meeting the requirements.
In 2018, as has been the case in all other years, all of our pupils from Reception to Year 6 will taking part in swimming lessons during the summer term.
