The government currently provides funding to schools through a Sport Premium Fund. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
The Association for Physical Education suggest that funding is to be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This may be in a variety of ways. Their suggestions are:
Swimming at Churchend School
Year 3, 4 and 5 children attend weekly swimming sessions at a local pool during the Autumn Term.
Year 6 will attend weekly swimming sessions at a local pool during the summer term. Any Year 5 children that are unable to swim to a level will attend with year 6 too.
Each year around 10 - 15% of the children are complete non-swimmers before the course begins. At the end of the course they are presented with certificates to show the proficiency level that they have attained.
In Spring 2020 ....% of the 60 children in the 2020-21 Year 5 cohort demonstrated that they were able to:
• swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
• use a range of strokes effectively
• perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
