PE and Sport Premium Funding

We have received our funding allocation for 2023-2024.  We have been allocated £18,780

Purpose of the premium

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, in the 2023 to 2024 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

The Department for Education (DfE) has published information on how much PE and sport premium funding primary schools receive, and advice on how to spend it.

Basis of allocation

Allocations for the academic year 2023 to 2024 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2023 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil

  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1,000 per pupil

Schools must publish:

  • the amount of premium received

  • a full breakdown of how it has been spent, or will be spent by 31 July 2024

  • what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment

  • how the improvements will be sustainable in the future

  • the percentage of pupils within their year 6 cohort for academic year 2022 to 2023 that can do each of the following:

  • swim competently, confidently, and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

  • use a range of strokes effectively (for example front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke

  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

If selected, schools must also take part in a sampling review to scrutinise their compliance with these terms.

Swimming Report 2022/2023

Currently, our children visit the local swimming pool for lessons.  85% are able to proficiently swim a distance over 25 metres and can perform self rescue.  Swimming lessons are termly and organised via year group.  All children are expected to attend, as with other lessons.  Swimming kit (costume/shorts, towel and swimming hat are required)
