Sports Premium

The Government provides funding each year to schools for sports, this is called our sports premium funding. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

The money allocated to our school is to be spent on improving the quality of sport, physical activity and physical education (PE) for all our children. The sport funding can only be spent on this provision in our school. This funding must be used for the benefit of all our primary-aged pupils, so that they develop healthy active lifestyles.

We have the freedom to choose how we do this, possible uses for the funding include:
·       hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when    

        teaching PE
·       new or additional sport clubs paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
·       providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport running sport

        competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
·      buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

Impact of Sports Premium 

Allocation 2018-2019


We spent £17.867 on sports last year. Our key aims were to continue to increase the level of skill that children had, to improve the quality of teaching in PE and incorporate provision for mental health and wellbeing.  The impact of spending is as follows: 


  • ​Children are engaging with outdoor learning activities offsite, applying taught skills within lessons. Consequently, lesson engagement for targetted underperforming children has improved. 
  • Pupils engagement and enjoyment within PE lessons continues to be high
  • There is an increase in the percentage of children reaching the expected level for physical development
  • Teachers feel supported and are more able to deliver lessons that are at least good
  • There is a clear skills progression within lessons and strategy for PE development 
  • ​There is a broader range of lessons, enabling the children's' skill level to increase within a variety of disciplines.
