PE Sports Strategy funding comes from the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. It means money is going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The following numbers of children have achieved the following KS2 expectations in the current Year 6 classes as of October 2018.
To swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
42 pupils = 57%
and also to use a range of of strokes effectively
33 pupils = 45%
and also to perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
9 pupils = 12%
Children at Northern Saints take formal lessons in Year 4 and top up lessons in Year 6 for those not yet achieving the standards. For competent swimmers the new strategy will introduce competition swimming.
