The Government initiative of funding sporting activities in Primary schools came into affect 2014/2015 academic year.
At Meadow Green we recognise the contribution that PE and sport makes to the health and well-being of children. We believe that a broad and balanced PE curriculum with a range of extra-curricular activities and access to competitive sport can have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and achievement of all our children.
Last year Meadow Green Primary School was given £18,510 funding to enhance the provision of PE and School sport for all of our children. Covid restrictions and impact on maintaining class bubbles restricted our planned provisions as detailed in our sports premium spend document attached below.
Below is a summary of provision put in place and its impact.
PE & SPORTS PREMIUM REPORT
In July 2021, 84% of year 6 children were able to swim completely confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m. The same percentage could use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations. This information being based upon their end of Year 4 outcomes in 2019.
Ordinarily pupils who have not achieved the proficiency standards at the end of Year 4 would have additional opportunities to reach this standard before leaving in Year 6.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been able to take the children swimming. When guidance allows, we will begin our programme again and report the outcomes. A priority for this academic year will be to enable all cohorts who have missed the allocated swimming tuition during 2019-20 and 2020-21
