Primary school PE and school sport: funding
1. In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
2. Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013.
3. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupil develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Pupils choose stroke and start in the water, must be relaxed.
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke?
Children should be able to use a range of strokes, alternating on their front and back, and adapt them for a range of purposes. Swimming strokes do not have to be technically correct, but they need to be effective for the intended outcomes to be successfully achieved.
E.g. swim 15 metres using a range of strokes, with change of strokes to be fluent, treading water using a breaststroke type action and sculling with hands.
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self- rescue in different water – based situations?
