“Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their lives.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Enabling children to flourish and succeed


Our teaching and learning recognises the seven values associated with the Olympics. These are made up of three Olympic values - Friendship, Respect and Excellence - along with the four Paralympic values - Determination, Inspiration, Courage and Equality. These values underpin the way we approach sports at Redmile School

Children from Year 3-5 have weekly swimming lessons in the Spring Term in Bingham, where there are two pools for all abilities.


The children are taught by fully qualified swimming instructors. Children work towards specific targets and are rewarded with certificates when they complete each stage. Competent swimmers are taught aspects of personal survival, whilst new swimmers are sensitively encouraged to feel safe in the water before learning correct strokes and water skills.


The following information is updated annually:


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety2023
Percentage of Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres79%
Percentage of Year 6 cohort who can use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)79%
Percentage of Year 6 cohort who can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?64%
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements, but we haven’t used it in this way to date. 




At our school, we enter and participate in many sporting tournaments across our Trust, as well as the Vale of Belvoir and Melton communities. Some key achievements that we have recently achieved can be found on our Latest News web page, or our school newsletters.


School Sports Day


Our annual sports day occurs during the summer term. All children, parents/carers and family members, including toddlers, participate in a morning of competitive games.


The children are placed into their house groups and compete against each other through a range of activities, such as relays, sprints, water races, beanbag shuttle and ball-balance relays.
