Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that we shuld use the premium to:
Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
For example, we can use our funding to:
Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life (http://www.nhs.uk/change4life/Pages/change-for-life.aspx) clubs
Run sport competitions
Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games (https://www.gov.uk/government/policies/getting-more-people-playing-sport/supporting-pages/the-school-games)
Run sports activities with other schools
Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.
All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
|Swimming and Water Safety||Please fill out all of the below:|
|What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?||57%|
|What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?||57%|
|What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?||0% (actively tested)|
|Schools can choose to use the primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?||No|
Figures based on 2016/2017 swimming data
As a form of continuous improvement we are looking to incorporate self-rescue into our future swimming plans that is actively tested and also to offer swimming booster sessions to KS2 children who are struggling to reach the current expectations. We expect to see a significant rise in Year 6 children achieving these expectations at the end of this 2017/18 academic year.
