Sports Grant

Sports Premium Funding

The Government provided additional sports funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. 
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport.  Please click on the link below to see how we spend our Sports Premium Funding.

All children in KS2 get the opportunity to swim for 30mins for 8 weeks every academic year. This enables children to develop basic water skills and confidence.

In 2021 - 2022, 100% of our Year 6 children met 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. Any child who has not met is offered the opportunity to have funded top up swimming sessions.
