Sports Premium

The Government is spending over £450 million on improving Physical Education (PE) and School Sport in Primary Schools over the next three academic years: 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Horn Park. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

We are therefore delighted to be able to use the £9534 sport premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways;

 

 

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

 

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?

 

65%

 

 

What percentage of your current Year 6cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?

 

58%

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?

 

30%

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. Have you used it in this way?
