Sports Premium

The government is continuing to provide additional funding for the academic year 2018-19 to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is direct to schools to be spent with the following aims:

• Increasing participation rates in such activities as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics.

• Increasing participation and success in competitive school sports.

• Making the physical education curriculum more inclusive.

• Expanding the growth in the range of traditional and alternative sporting activities.

• Improving partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners.

• Finding links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills.

• Making pupils more aware of the dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupils’ health.


Sports Premium Grant 2017-18:

In the academic year 2017-18 our school will receive £16,000. The Sports Premium Grant will be used to:

  • Employ a specialist PE coach who is employed in all the local schools.  This structure means that he will coach the same sport each half term in all schools and then set up local competitions in order to increase participation and success.  
  • Provide lunchtime sports activities and a long after school club (until 5pm)
  • Provide access to holiday clubs run by an experienced sports coach to all of our KS2 children. 
  • Improve our equipment and resources for teaching PE.
  • Improve our active playtimes through playground resources.
  • Develop mental health in the pupils. 
  • Enter teams in a wider range of competitive sport.
  • Obtain evidence to apply for the Sainsbury's School Games Silver Award.
