Lincewood Primary School

Sports Premium

The Physical Education and Sports Grant is allocated to schools based on the number of children the school has on roll.

The purpose of this funding is to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport in Primary Schools and it is up to the Senior Leadership and Governing Body of the school to determine how best to spend the grant to achieve this.

At Lincewood Primary School we want to provide every pupil with access to the highest quality of Physical Education provision through curriculum time, and through before/after school and holiday activities. The grant supports us to do this.

To find out more about P.E. at Lincewood Primary School, please refer to the P.E. section of our curriculum page: Curriculum Overview (Curriculum menu tab)



Part of the Sports Premium Grant goes towards our swimming provision. We are lucky enough to have our own swimming pool, and this allows us to include swimming as part of P.E. provision from Reception up to Year 6. Schools must publish the percentage of pupils within its year 6 cohort who met the national curriculum swimming and water safety requirements.


Refer to the data before for the percentages of pupils who achieved the expected standards in 2023:

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres: 95%
  • Use a range of strokes effectively: 95%
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations’: 90%
