All primary schools in England receive additional funding through the PE and Sport Premium, which they must use to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport that they offer.
In 2022-23, we received £17,990 through the premium. To find out how we spent this funding, what impact it had and the next steps we have identified, read our 2022-23 PE and Sport Premium Report, here.
We began by identifying both our key achievements from the previous year:
We then identified key areas for improvement in the coming year:
"Staff provide a range of additional activities and opportunities including sports clubs and visits to places of interest. These broaden pupils experience and raise their aspirations."
Having identified our areas for improvement, we then put together our action plan for 2022/23, based around the 'Key indicators' identified by the Association for Physical Education:
To see how the spending against each indicator is broken down, and the impact that it is having, please read our full report, here.
Finally, there is a big national drive to improve the quality of swimming provision in primary schools, and as a result all schools have been asked to share key information about the swimming ability of school leavers:
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
If you're looking for a place in Nursery or Reception, you can find out lots more about our school in our Early Years Prospectus.
We're always keen to show potential new applicants around - just get in touch with the school office to arrange a tour.
Once you're ready to apply, head to the admissions page to find out more about the process - we run Nursery admissions ourselves, but from Reception upwards, these need to be made via Herts County Council.
