Children experience a wide range of physical education activities which promote well being, agility and strength within a range of disciplines. Lower Juniors access swimming lessons and have additional lessons if they haven't achieved the 25 metre standard. This enables the vast majority of children to have achieved well beyond the standard by year 6. In 2023, 90% of the children had reached this standard and beyond.
DfE Aims for PE:
All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.
Schools should prioritise PE and sport premium spending to improve in the following 5 key areas:
increasing all staff’s confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport
increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and sport
raising the profile of PE and sport across the school, to support whole school improvement
offer a broader and more equal experience of a range of sports and physical activities to all pupils
increase participation in competitive sport
