At Bearwood Primary and Nursery school, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to extend our P.E provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions, as well as expanding our after-school club opportunities.
PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools:
The Premium is designed to help children get an active start in life, supporting primary schools to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise – from becoming healthier both mentally and physically to improved behaviour and better academic achievement. The funding is a ring-fenced grant for English primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity. Allocations to schools are determined by a formula based on pupil numbers.
How much will the school receive?
The school was allocated £18050 in funding for the Sports Premium.
Unspent PE and sport premium grant funding
We had no carry over of funds from 2022/23 and this years funds will need to be spent in full by 31st July 2023.
How can the money be spent?
The premium must be spent on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. The Secretary of State has identified two areas whereby the premium cannot be spent:
· Employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment)
· Funding the minimum requirements of a school existing PE curriculum
What must we publish?
By Friday 31st July 2023, the school will publish on its website how the premium is being spent and the impact the additional funding is having. The school must publish detailed information on:
· The amount of premium received
· A full breakdown of how the premium has been spent (or will be spent)
· What impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
· How the improvements will be sustainable in the future
· How many pupils (within our year 6 cohort) can do each of the following:
o Swim competently over a distance of at least 25 metres
o Use a range of strokes effectively
o Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
What we are doing?
We are keen to ensure our Sports Premium has maximum long-term impact on the quality of provision. This means we are focusing on two main areas:
· Developing and adding to the PE and Sport that Bearwood already offers, through clubs, coaches and broadening the children of Bearwood’s experiences of physical activity. We recognise the strong links between physical and mental wellbeing and are keen to foster a love of sport and activity within our learners.
· Building capacity and capability within Bearwood to ensure improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
By carefully considering how our premium will be spent using best practice, we aim for all pupils leaving Bearwood Primary and Nursery School to be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle.
Evidencing Impact and Swimming Data 2020-2021
The National Curriculum requires that children are confidently able to swim 25m by the end of KS2. Following review of the cohort’s most recent assessments (Year 6) and parental questionnaires, the number of children at the standard (distance, range of strokes, self rescue) was 83%. The percentage of children achieving the standard in distance, range of strokes and ability to perform safe self-rescue to 86%.

We are proud to publish our swimming figures for this year. The National Curriculum requires that children are confidently able to swim 25m by the end of KS2. We are particularly proud of our children’s efforts, with a group of children in each class having made excellent progress with their swimming skills during booster sessions completed in the Autumn term.
|Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety
|Please complete all of the below*:
|What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?
|What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?
|What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort 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. Have you used it in this way?
|It was intended to use the money in the Summer term for additional swimming to current year 6 pupils, due to the Coronavirus this has not been possible.
