PE and Sport Premium

During the academic year (2020-21) we received £16,000 + £10 per pupil as a sports premium funding allocation. We have used the money to enhance our sports provision for pupils and ensured children were exposed to new sports that they may not have previously experienced, from climbing and canoeing, to fell walking and archery. A large part of our plan for this academic year has been to increased the quality of sports provision through professional coaches which help develop our teachers skill and knowledge base.

2021 - 2022

Our focus will be on expanding our PE delivery with professional coaches in multiple sports and concentrating on developing our offer to ensure children remain physically active for 30 minutes per school day. We will be working towards the School Games Award. An overview of our year is as follows:

Our plans are to encourage more competitive sport both in school through a high quality sports based curriculum and by competing against other schools throughout the year. We have teamed up with Carlisle United to help develop our curriculum; we look forward to working with them from September 2021 onwards. We will also be having a regular after school activity linked to competitive sport. 

We will keep you updated of our progress through our Twitter feed and through our regular newsletters.


Current DfE guidelines require us to publish how many pupils within our Year 6 cohort (15 children) can do the following:

- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres - 14 children

- use a range of strokes effectively - 12 children

- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations - 12 children

These figures are based on the children's weekly swimming sessions in Y3/4.


Swimming Curriculum:

Children will complete 1 term of swimming lessons before they start Y5. Current Y5 missed their full allocation of Swimming due to schools closures during COVID-19

This academic year children from years 3 and 4 will attend 12 swimming sessions during the Spring term.
