Sports Premium

The Government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. They allocate this extra funding directly to primary schools.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

All schools are required to publish information about how they will spend this additional funding.The documents below show how we  spent the additional funding in our school last year and how this made a difference to the children in our school, and how we plan to spend the funding this academic year, and how we plan to spend the funding this year.

In 2023-24 all year 4  pupils received swimming lessons for the full year.  Years 3, 5 and 6 all received 1 term of additional swimming lessons.

  • 89% of children could swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m.
  • 100% of children could perform self-rescue in different water based situations.
  • 82% of children could use a range of strokes effectively over distance
