PE is taught each week by our class teachers, and as part of our involvement in the North West Leicestershire School Sports Partnership, we also have fully trained coaches who work alongside our teachers providing extra training. All classes across the school will have the benefit of a trained coach for at least half a term during the year. The coach also carries our extra curricular sporting clubs which the children are given the opportunity to attend.
Being part of the Partnership also gives our children the opportunity to take part in a variety of competitions and festivals. We fund our membership through the additional funds that the Government made available to improve the provision of PE and Sports in Primary Schools. The funding received is £16,000 plus £10 per pupil. Please click on the following link to read more about the sports funding: Sports Funding Explanation. From this year, schools are required to publish how many Year 6 pupils have met the national curriculum requirements relating to swimming and water safety. Currently, 80% of our Year 6 pupils meet the national standard.
