Primary School

Learning, achieving, working together


At Micklem, our intent is to engage all children in a healthy and active lifestyle.  We hope to implement this in a number of ways:


- We aim for every child to pass the National Curriculum assessment for swimming by the end of Year 5. 

- We plan for classes to have two PE lessons every week.

- Every class completes the Daily Mile or an Active Burst activity for 15 minutes a day.

- We are starting to use technology for video analysis of performance to support children's self assessment and progression.


We strive to support children in accessing competitive sport and use PE lessons to identify children who could progress their skills further at other clubs.  We want every child to have the opportunity to join a sports club outside of school time.


We do understand that not all children enjoy traditionally popular sports and so use our Sports Premium funding to support us in developing new sports and activities to ensure the engagement of every child.  The impact of this can be seen in our Sports Premium Spending Report.
