Sports Funding is additional money paid to schools for a limited period of time with the aim of increasing participation and skill level in sporting activities for primary age children. The money is designated to be spent on professional development for teaching staff, equipment, facilities, sports clubs, events and competitions.
We are required to publish the number of children in Year 6 currently who can complete the National Curriculum requirement of swimming 25 metres, using a range of strokes and perform safe self-rescue in a range of water-based situations. Currently 100% of both Year 5 and 6 children are at this standard of swimming or above. This follows participation for many children in our PTA swimming club, school swimming in Years 4,5 and 6 aswell as private swimming lessons and swimming clubs for some children.
