As a school we sent out a questionnaire to Year 6 parents/carers to find out how many children in Year 6 could:
. swim 25m competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m
. use a range of strokes effectively
. Perform safe self rescue in different water based situations
Out of the 32 replies received the results are as follows:
. 20/32 could swim 25m confidently
. 21/32 could perform a range of strokes
. 19/32 could perform safe self rescue
Warren Primary have achieved the Gold School Games Mark Award for the 4th Year.
The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark.
To achieve the Gold Award the school has to offer the pupils a wide range of sporting opportunities, from 2 hours physical education each week to make sure the majority of our pupils take part in extra-curricular sessions.
This year we have had 87% of our Key Stage Two pupils take part in Extra Curricular activity, either at lunchtime or before/after school. There are plans in place to try and surpass this total next year with new sports being added to the timetable for all our pupils to access. With this plan in place, hopefully, we can apply for the Platinum award.
