Sports Premium

The primary PE and sport premium 2022 to 2023 is  paid by the Secretary of State for Education to the local authority , as a grant under section 14 of the Education Act 2002.


The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2022 to 2023 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE, physical activity and sport for the benefit of all primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. 


This means that we should use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


We should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:

  • Increased participation in competitive sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity


Intended Spending of Sport Premium

Allocation 2022-2023

Our allocation for this financial year (Apr 2022-March 2023) is £17,630

Our planned expenditure for this current year is detailed in our sports strategy belowWe are continuing to sustain our current provision and introduce some new developments during this financial year. 

Impact of Sports Premium 

Allocation 2021-2022

We spent £18,063 on sports last year. Our key aims were to: 


a)  Continue to develop teacher knowledge and skill in teaching progressive skills based lessons

b)  Provide additional opportunities for the children to engage in extra curricular PE sessions

c)  Further increase opportunities for outdoor education related to physical activity 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
  • During pupil interviews, the children's' feedback was positive, highlighting their enjoyment of learning new skills across a broad range of disciplines.
