PE & Sport Premium

The government provides funding for primary schools to develop PE and sport provision.  As a school we receive £16000 plus £10 per pupil. In the year 2017/18 we received £16,970.

Our children participate in swimming lessons in years 2 and 3 for 10 weeks in the summer term. During this time, the children receive high quality teaching from qualified swimming instructors in learning to swim using a range of strokes and to perform a self rescue. In the year 2018/19 100% of our year 6 cohort met the national requirements for swimming.


How do we make sure the improvements are sustainable?

  • We share good practice in school between teachers, in the MAT and at PLT meetings.
  • Subject leader undertakes learning walks and lesson observations to monitor the teaching of PE and the impact it is having on the children’s progress
  • Regular communications with Sporting Influence and monitoring it’s impact on the children and staff ensure that CPD is given in areas which are needed with the aim that each teacher is confident in teaching all areas of the PE curriculum
  • Regular discussions with children and sports crew to get their feedback
  • Subject Leader attends regular PLT meetings to ensure all staff are up to date with new developments in the curriculum, safe practice and any new developments or ideas in the teaching of PE.
  • Subject leader carries out a yearly audit of staff skills and equipment to know the requirements for the next academic year.
  • Assess impact of pupil progress
