Sport and PE at Yattendon – Our Vision

 

At Yattendon School we believe that health and physical activity is important in promoting lifelong values. Yattendon School does this by providing enjoyable opportunities for all of its pupils to participate in curriculum PE and school sports clubs. We value the benefit it brings to children’s self-confidence and well-being.

 

 

Throughout the 2018-19 academic year we will be focusing on the following key areas:

1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Swimming

 

For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

 

This condition has been added in response to recommendations from the Swim Group, who reviewed curriculum swimming and water safety in primary schools.

 

At Yattendon, we are very proud of our swimming provision and here is our data:

 

Percentage of children who have met the National Curriculum Expectations:

94.8%

Percentage of children who have not yet met the National Curriculum Expectations:

5.2%

 

National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

  • use a range of strokes effectively

  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
