PE and Sport Premium
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide substantial primary school sport funding.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
The aim of this investment is to improve the lifestyles and overall health of the pupils in the school, giving them access to a wide curriculum that is engaging and motivational. Part of this commitment is to tackle obesity and other health related issues.
At Wymondham CE Primary School, we believe that Physical Education contributes significantly to the health and well-being of children. We work hard to develop PE through curriculum time and extra-curricular activities by providing a wide range of experiences to engage and inspire all pupils.
We ensure that all pupils benefit, regardless of sporting ability; the most able pupils have the opportunity to participate in inter-schools competitions and are signposted to local clubs.
We plan to use funding to:
employ specialist teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons to children throughout the school
provide opportunities for professional development of teaching staff
provide cover for teachers to attend professional development sessions
provide outdoor adventurous activities
introduce new sports and physical activities to cater for all interests
provide after school sports clubs
increase participation in sporting activities for all children
enable children to take part in local tournaments and competitions
We will evaluate the impact of our funding and monitor pupil participation and progress.

Children across the school have weekly swimming lessons during the autumn term. One of our teachers plus a team of assistants and family members help with supervision to the Melton Leisure Centre, where there are two pools for all abilities.
The children are taught by fully qualified swimming instructors. Children work towards specific targets and are rewarded with certificates when they complete each stage. Competent swimmers are taught aspects of personal survival, whilst new swimmers are sensitively encouraged to feel safe in the water before learning correct strokes and water skills.
The following information will be updated during the 2021-2022 school swimming programme when it becomes available.
Percentage of Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
Percentage of Year 6 cohort who can use a range of strokes effectively
Percentage of Year 6 cohort who can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements, but we haven’t used it in this way to date.
