PE grant statement

For the academy year 2017-18, Solebay Primary expects to receive £5253 in primary school PE and sport funding. The academy plans to spend this as follows:

  • £1000 to ensure that we offer the adventurous activities element of the PE national curriculum to all year groups
  • £4253 to fund the costs of providing swimming lessons for as many pupils as possible, over and above the National Curriculum requirement. We have also taken on a specialist sports teacher during the autumn, spring and summer terms

For the academic year 2016-17, Solebay Primary received £5253 in primary school PE and sport funding. The academy has spent this as follows:

  • £1000 to ensure that we offer the adventurous activities element of the PE national curriculum to all year groups
  • £4253 to fund the costs of providing swimming lessons for as many pupils as possible, over and above the National Curriculum requirement. We have also taken on a specialist sports teacher during the autumn, spring and summer terms

This spend had a significant, positive impact:

  • pupils experienced an enhanced range of adventurous activities, more than meeting the requirements of the PE national curriculum.  This opportunity is provided for very every pupil, in addition to either PE taught by a PE specialist or high quality swimming instruction.
  • pupils continued to receive high quality swimming instruction.  This has a positive impact on the pupils’ depth of knowledge and expertise in swimming as the pupils proceed in to key stage two.
