About  »  PE and Sport Premium

What is the PE and Sport Premium?

The government has provided each Primary school with additional funding for the improvement of sports provision that is on offer for our pupils.  This is an initiative designed to promote healthy lifestyles.

The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:

  • To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports
  • To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
  • To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce
  • Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement.

This academic year, the school will receive £9080.00

Impact of PE and Sport Funding 2014 – 2015

Funding allocation of £8770.00

Key Objective and anticipated benefits.


1. Provide greater extra-curricular sporting opportunities for all pupils.


After school clubs were arranged by the school for multi-skills, football, netball and Taekwondo.



The clubs have proved popular with pupils and their families and are well attended.  The sports premium has not been used to subsidise the cost to pupils, but the clubs themselves have heightened interest in a wider range of sporting activities.

For example the pupils themselves have requested specific activities especially those that are more girl friendly.  Consequently, the school now has a club for netball.

A number of friendly matches have taken place with local schools.  These have been well attended.

2. Improve the P.E equipment that the pupils have access to in order to improve specific skills in a range of sporting areas.

Last year, the school bought equipment for athletics and netball.  As a result, pupil participation was improved and the skills of all pupils have widened.  We have a wide range of needs amongst our pupils and so we were able to purchase appropriate resources. 

3. The school worked with an outside company who came in to school to work alongside teachers in order to support their professional development.  In addition, they ran some lunchtime clubs too.

Teachers now have a wider range of skills, knowledge and understanding around the teaching of sports and PE.  This has meant that pupils are improving and developing their own skills at a faster pace.

The lunch clubs have meant that our pupils have been shown a number of games and skills that they can practice in their own time.  This has had a beneficial impact on behaviour.  Such initiatives have supported our school’s own values of empathy, self-discipline, respect, integrity, courage and gratitude.

The school provided Yoga lessons too which is in line with our school curriculum provision.

The costing for last year’s sport and PE activities is as follows;

  • Kit for the football team  £174.30
  • Kit for the netball team £354.00
  • Equipment £227.64
  • Superskills coaches for school £22,620.00
  • Taekwondo classes £3,250.00

Total spend for 2014-2015   £26,625.94
