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.

All children in KS2 get the opportunity to swim for 30mins for 8-10 weeks every academic year. This enables children to develop basic water skills and confidence.
This year 2017 - 2018, we currently have 86% of our Year 6 children who meet 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.
The remaining 14% (6 children) will undertake "top-up" swimming sessions funded by our Sports Premium to support them in developing their water confidence and skills.
