  The government is providing funding to improve the provision of Physical Education (P.E.) and sport in primary schools. This funding is referred to as the Sports Premium. These funds must be spent on improving the school's provision of PE and sport.

At Hollymount, we believe that Physical Education, School Sport and Healthy Active Lifestyles are vital to each pupil’s physical development and physical/mental well-being.

We recognise the importance of every child establishing life-long habits and developing physical, mental and social well-being. Since the introduction of Sports Premium, this vision has had a major impact on outcomes across our school.

Physical activity and sport, in general, is a high priority at Hollymount. It is firmly embedded in the school culture with activities taking place before school, during lesson time, breaks, lunchtimes, and after-school. We endeavour to provide the tools for children to see the multiple benefits of sport and physical activity. We hope that this will lead all children to continue participating in sport and physical activity as they continue through life.

At Hollymount, Sports Premium Funding is highly valued and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect. The funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport. Sports Premium should be used to build capacity within the school and we are working to ensure that improvements made will benefit pupils in future years.

There are 5 Key Indicators that we are focused on:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - The Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day at school.
  2. Raise the profile and celebrate sport, physical activity and well-being across the whole school. Utilise sport and physical activity to positively impact the mental health and well-being of children.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff and volunteers in teaching PE and sport.
  4. All pupils have access to enjoy a range of sports, activities and unstructured play
  5. Children have opportunities to take part in competitive sport both internally and externally. 

Swimming at Hollymount 

At Hollymount we swim in year five and swim under the guidance of Merton Sports Council. This involves a two week intensive course to ensure 100% of children can swim 25 meters and perform a self rescue, which in 2023/24 100% of year five children could do.
