PE and Sport Premium
The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This is based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport. This year, we have applied for the School Games Mark.
Throughout this school year, sport and well-being has continued to play an important part of our school life.
Personal Sporting Challenges, organised and led by our 16 Sports Ambassadors, have been a success for all Key Stage 2 Classes. In addition, 72 Young Leaders played an active role by officiating and leading Intra-School Competitions.
Our Football Team finished second in the league, only two points behind the league champions.
In Hockey, we took three teams to the annual Quicksticks Festival, with the A team winning all of their matches.
Our Cross Country Runners entered the Wolverhampton School's Area Competition with the boy's team winning Bronze and the girl's team winning Silver medals.
As a result of this commitment, we achieved the Gold Black Country Commitment Award for P.E and School Sport.
The National Curriculum requires children to:
1. Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
2. Use a range of strokes effectively
3. Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
% of year 6 pupils at West Park who met this standard:
2017/18 - 67 %
2018/19 - 91 %
2019/20 - 74% (swimming stopped at the end of March due to Covid-19)
Due to Covid-19, a selected cohort of Year 6 pupils had the opportunity to swim during Summer Term 2 only. The aim was to regain confidence in the water and to attempt to swim 25m.
71% of children leaving Year 6 achieved this aim.
