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 2018-19:

In the academic year 2018-19 our school will have access to £17,300 in Sports Premium. The 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. 
  • Provide alternative sports clubs, such as judo, to provide a broader sporting experience to more children.
  • Improve our equipment and resources for teaching PE including the provision of PE kits to those children who require one.
  • Provide half funded additional swimming lessons to increase the cnumber of children who reach national curriculum expectations.
  • Improve our active playtimes through playground resources.
  • Support early development of gross and fine motor skills in EYFS by using a Balancability programme with training and purchase of bikes that teachers can continue to use and develop in future years. 
  • Enter teams in a wider range of competitive sport.
  • Obtain evidence to apply and maintain our school's 'School Games Silver Award'.
