Improving PE and sports for all children

Sports Premium

At Brabourne, we aim to ensure that the PE and Sport Premium funding is used to make “Effective, Sustainable and High Quality” improvements. Ofsted, who will be monitoring the use of the funding, will be looking for: “How well the school uses its Sport Premium to improve the quality and breath of its PE and sporting provision, including increasing opportunities in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances they are capable of.”

We also aim to use the investment to find sustainable solutions. We believe in investing first and foremost in existing teaching staff and ensuring that staff are developed professionally. This therefore means a significant investment in teacher support which will be provided by Active Community Development, a company focused on sports development and pupil education (Next Generation Sports Coaching). This will ensure that when the funding ends, the quality of teaching and learning will be sustained.

Previous year:

To see how the sports premium was spend in 2022/2023 and see its impact:

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres? 93%
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]? 93%
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations? 86%
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and sport 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?       No
