PE & Sport premium Report
PE & Sport Premium
Physical Education (PE) is an integral part of the curriculum at Elvetham Heath Primary School. We understand the positive impact these early experiences can have on the physical and mental well-being of our pupils and therefore constantly strive to ensure all pupils gain fun and stimulating PE lessons and access to quality school and borough competitions.
The government have also recognised the positive impact PE can have, and have provided additional funding for schools of £230 million per annum for academic years 2021 - 2022 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 based on the January school census. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
There is a condition for schools to publish how many pupils within their Year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement in swimming.
The National Curriculum states that ‘Children should be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively and perform a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.’
Due to continued pool closures due to Covid 19, plus a health and safety problem at our pool, swimming lessons were cancelled. The current Year 6 children will swim this year to catch up.
Due to unprecedented circumstances (COVID-19) and swimming pools being closed, this data was not collected.
91% of pupils were able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters and use a range of strokes effectively and 87% performed self-rescue in different water-based situations.
