Early Years Pupil Premium
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
Early years providers are any organisation offering education for children aged under 5, including nurseries and childminders.
The Government provides substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the “physical education” PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. For example hire specialist “physical education” PE teachers, hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers, provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport, support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs or run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sport and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
Swimming analysis: The COVID-19 pandemic has affected school’s access to swimming lessons, therefore, children in school have not swam consistently since before March 2020. However, as a school we are committed to developing children’s skills and confidence in the water moving forwards so that as many as possible reach the required expectation to be able to “Swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.”
In 2018/19, 83.3% of our Year 6 children were able to attain this competency.
For 2019-20, our swimming and water safety outcomes (up to March 2020 when lessons stopped) were:
|84%||of our Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres when they left our primary school at the end of last academic year.|
|84%||of our year six pupils could use a range of strokes effectively, 10 metres
unaided (front crawl, back stroke, and breast stroke) when they left your
primary school at the end of last academic year.
|84%||of our Year 6 pupils could perform safe self rescue in different water-based situations when they left our primary school at the end of last academic year.|
|No||Schools can choose to use the primary PE and sports 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?|
