How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding 2023/24
We will be using the Sports Premium funding to ~:
- improve the PE and sports provision through staff training and input from specialists;
- purchase resources to support and enhance the delivery PE and sports;
- provide opportunities for pupils to participate in intra and inter schools competitions.
Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.
The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:
- 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
At Tilery Primary School, we typically start water confidence lessons in Year 4. This continues into Year 5. Those pupils who have not reached the 25m expectation will continue to swim in Year 6.
Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2022 – 2023: –
- 64% could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- 55% could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- 73% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
