PE and Sports Premium
The funding - the Primary PE and Sport Premium - provides money directly to primary school head teachers, enabling them to carry on the sporting legacy of the Olympics. The funding is meant to improve the quality of sporting opportunities within schools.
Learning to swim forms an important part of our Physical Education National Curriculum; it is also an essential life-saving skill. Sadly, drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death in children, so swimming is a sport with the potential to save lives. Utilising our Primary PE and Sports Premium, we ensure that children receive a course of swimming lessons every academic year from Year 3 to Year 6. This is particularly important as our school is located near to a canal and we are situated in a coastal area. Sadly, due to the pandemic situation, swimming lessons were not consistent which has had an impact on the children's level of achievement. We would normally expect over 80% to reach the expected standard.
