PE and Sports Premium

  • What is School Sport Premium funding?

    The Government in England has provided additional funding of over £150 million per annum since 2013/14 to improve PE and school sport in primary schools. From September 2017, the funding will be doubled to enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of the PE and sport they offer.

    Purpose of funding:

    Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


    All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


    To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
    We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:

    • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
    • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
    • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
    • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
    • Increased participation in competitive sport
  • Why was the School Sport premium created?

    Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for developing a sense of community. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

    Unfortunately, when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means they can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them maintain sporting lifestyles, regardless of economic or social background.

  • Plans for use of Sports Premium this year (2017-2018)

    For 2016-17 the Grant will be £10,090, made up of a lump sum of £8,000 plus an additional £5 per pupil based on the number of pupils in Years 1-6 when the School Census is taken each January. Last year there were 418 pupils in the January 2016 census generating additional funding of £2,090. The focus last year was for the professional development of teachers and staff (CPD).

    In this academic year 2017-2018, we will aim to achieve the ‘School Games mark’ by continuing to provide children with as many opportunities to be involved in sporting competitions and clubs. This will be achieved through the following intiatives:

    ⦁ Increase the amount of children attending an after-school club or lunchtime club and increase the activities offered.

    ⦁ Develop expertise of staff at lunchtime and playtimes to offer more structured activities during these times.

    ⦁ To develop the provision of individualised training for teachers through CPD with a specialist PE teacher.

    ⦁ To develop an understanding of the need for practice and application to improve and succeed.

    ⦁ Provide existing staff with training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

Swimming information


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Amount of children (%)

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. Have you used it in this way?
