Impact of the PE Premium Sports grant
The Sports premium has been above the minimum requirement of the Core PE lessons to develop agility, physical co-ordination, fitness, confidence and enjoyment through PE lessons. The school is able to use the playground and school field for its PE sessions and has access to swimming facilities in Key Stage 2 as described below.
The curriculum has been structured to include regular competitions within the cluster and beyond. We have before and after-school sports clubs including netball, gymnastics and athletics for which there is not a charge. This includes opportunities for all year groups. The sports resources and equipment, including a trim trail, are maintained and replenished as appropriate.
Key Stage 2 children go swimming at Diss Leisure Centre during the Autumn and Spring term. The current Year 6 children went swimming in Lower Key Stage 2. They have been assessed to see if they meet the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. 79% of the children meet these requirements.
Children from Reception to Year 6 enjoy a Forest School afternoon every week, encouraging outdoor learning and physical exercise. There is an opportunity to learn all about nature in-situ.
The school is in receipt of funding from the Government as part of a National Strategy. The proposed way of spending this is in the document below. This is a working document so will change throughout the year.
