Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.
We have been working with Carre’s Grammar School to increase the quality and breadth of the PE and Sport that we offer at Chestnut Street School. Staff have been supported in developing their skills and knowledge via regular visits from PE specialists. The Premium has allowed for the provision of National Governing Body qualified coaches to visit our school and work with our staff and children. This year we are looking forward to having two physical literacy coaches to come in and work with our key stage one staff and Year 3 and 4 Staff to increase their confidence and knowledge.
For the 2018 to 2019 academic year our data shows that 82% of our current Y6 pupils (23/28) have met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum.
We will be using some of the sports premium to increase the number of pupils meeting the requirements.
For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition of the PE and Sport grant. It requires all schools to publish how many pupils within their Year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres; use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Our data for 2017/18 is:
75% of our Y6 pupils (23/27) met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum.
We have decided that we will use some of the PE and Sports Premium to provide top up swimming sessions in the summer term 2018 over and above the National Curriculum entitlement for the Year 6 pupils to increase the number meeting the requirements.
