‘A curriculum exists to change the pupil; to give the pupil new power’ (Christine Counsell). At Yardley we aim to empower children by developing emotional, academic and physical skills.

The DfE are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (P.E) and sport in Primary Schools. This substantial sum is going directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children's needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England.

92% of the year 6 cohort can do each of the following:

    • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
    • use a range of strokes effectively
