PE and Sport Premium

PE and Sport Premium 

School Sports funding is specific money put into primary schools by the government to improve PE for every child.  The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

 

What does it mean for Worle Village Primary?

For us it means that we have £17,860 of funding for the academic year 2020/21.

 

We work hard to provide excellent PE experiences throughout the school by ensuring there is two hours of timetabled PE a week per child. We are raising the profile of PE, increasing participation in competitive 'inter' (between schools) and 'intra' (between each other) school sport.

Swimming

The National Curriculum requires that children leaving Primary School are able to swim at least 25 metres. Our current Swimming Policy is to provide swimming lessons to all our Year 3 pupils during the summer term.  Last year 91% of our pupils could comfortably swim 25m.  We are keen to promote swimming for all our children and endeavour to provide opportunity for non-swimmers to gain more experience.  We offer the opportunity again in Years 5 and 6 to ensure all children leave our school able to swim.

 

At the end of 2018/19 91% of Year 6's could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres and 89% could use a range of strokes effectively.

 

Unfortunately our swimming program for 2019/2020 was disrupted by the closures of schools and sporting venue's due to Coronavirus.  We are aiming to restart our swimming program as soon as possible in 2020/21.

 

At Worle Village Primary School we believe swimming is a hugely important life skill, which is why we aim to ensure that all children leave us with the opportunity to learn water safety and gain confidence in the water whilst learning to swim.
