Believe And Achieve: To Be The Best That We Can Be

Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Sports Premium


We are delighted that the government has recognised the value of high quality sports opportunities for children as we have always worked hard to promote and coach a wide range of sporting activities in our school.


For this academic year, we have been allocated additional funding through the government’s PE and Sport Premium. As a school we have been allocated £16,000 with an additional £10 per pupil amounting to a total of approximately £17,520. Below you will find how we are allocating that money (approximately) and how it will benefit our pupils.


Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.  This means that they should use the premium to:

•develop or add to the PE and sport activities that they already offers;

•build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.


There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

•the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school;

•the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement;

•increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport;

•broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;

•increased participation in competitive sport.


We will continue to ensure that:

          • all children benefit regardless of sporting ability;

          • that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments;

          • that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development;

          • that we continue to promote and develop children’s healthy life styles and physical activity levels.


I need to highlight the fact that in this school, our staff already provide high quality teaching in P.E. and sport within the curriculum and also during after school clubs and activities. They use their enthusiasm, time and expertise outside their working day and receive no additional salary for doing so. They will continue to do so in order that this new funding can provide opportunities over and above the comprehensive sports programme that we have always provided and will continue to provide free of charge.
