PE and Sports Premium


The PE and Sports Premium funding is provided by the Government. National it represents additional funding of £150 million per annum  to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. As a school we recieve over £19,000.

The reports below give details of how this funding has been spent and how this spending is designed to be a long term investment into the Physical Education our children receive. They also gives details of how many pupils within Year 6 meet the National Curriculum requirements to swim competently. 

A Summary of Spending

Over a number of years we have spent the additional funding in a strategic way to ensure any spending has a lasting impact. For more detailed information please see the adjacent documents. A summary of some of the things we have invested in are: 

  • the appointment of a skilled P.E and sports co-ordinator who has written medium term planning ensuring continuity and progression of skills
  • upskilling staff in school through shared teaching with the P.E and sports co-ordinator
  • the purchase of equipment in Early Years to ensure an improvement in the physical development of the youngest pupils
  • moving swimming tuition from Year 5 to Year 3 to ensure younger children in school have the opportunity to learn to swim
  • expanding the range of clubs, competitions and sporting opportunities to interest a wider number of pupils e.g. golf, ballet and girls football
