What is it?
The primary PE and Sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The funding has been committed until 2020.

At Foxborough, we are fortunate enough to use our local pool at Langley Leisure Centre. Our students are taught the National Curriculum for swimming by the centre's qualified instructors.
Pupils are taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, and to use a range of strokes effectively.
26% achieved this standard last academic year (of which two were complete non swimmers at the start of the year.)
