What is sport premium?

The current government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. They are allocating this extra funding directly to schools. This is one of the benefits of the London Olympics.  You can read more about this funding on the GOV.UK website.

This funding can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are held accountable for how we use the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details.

How will we be spending the sport premium funding?

We believe in the importance of PE and Sport for children, and for them to have maximum engagement in this curriculum area. We are part of a cluster partnership with other schools, and encourage children to participate in competitive sports outside school.

Our rationale for the use of sport premium funding is:

  • High quality of CPD for class teachers on REAL PE
  • Continue to offer out of school clubs once Covid Restrictions make this possible.
  • Equipment for delivery of REAL PE purchased.
  • Class teachers to deliver PE lessons following quality INSET from Create Development
  • Equipment purchased for active playtimes
  • Transport costs to ensure out of school opportunities are accessible to all

What has the impact of previous spending been?

  • Participation in cluster sports festivals with emphasis on enjoyment and participation
  • Quality PE teaching provision, delivered by specialist sport teachers, supported by class teachers. Rotation of sports.
  • After School club offered 2 times per week
  • Dance Club offered to children at no cost, one afternoon per week.
