PE and Sports Premium
The Sports Premium was introduced to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles. It is allocated to schools to work with all pupils.
Schools are free to spend the Sports Premium as they see fit, however our approach and vision for our pupils is to ensure that all are offered 'rich opportunities and memorable experiences' and that those from poorer socio-economic backgrounds do not suffer barriers which hamper their progress and attainment.
Our decisions on how best to use the Sports Premium are based on the findings of high quality research and publications, including Ofsted's best practice guides. These have supported our decision on expenditure over the best and most effective use of our Sport Premium Funding.
Here at Kineton, we have an outdoor swimming pool enabling all pupils to access weekly swimming throughout the summer term. 78% of our 2022-23 Year 6 children met the National Curriculum standard for swimming in July 2023:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
- use a range of strokes effectively.
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
