Sports Premium Funding
The Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport provide additional funding to primary schools in order to help us to improve our PE provision.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy and active lifestyles.
The funding figure is based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 as recorded in the January census.

We are delighted to report that due to the additional swimming provision 78% of our year 6 cohort are able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres.

An impressive 71% of our cohort are able to effectively swim using a range of these strokes and are also confident performing self-rescue in different water based situations.
