Sports Premium 2017 to 2018

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has allocated to schools to promote and develop the Physical Education and School Sport provision. Schools receive this funding based upon the number of children in the school.

As this is Sport Premium, the money has to be spent exclusively on extending the opportunities for all our pupils to experience high quality PE lessons and competitive school sport.

We are excited to announce that as of the 2017/2018 academic year, Sports Premium has recently been doubled by the government!

Following on from a very successful year, when the school took part in more competitive sport than in previous years, we are planning to use the increased Sport Premium funding to:

  • Invest in specialist PE teaching, coaching and mentoring. ( to upskill our teachers to deliver improved PE lessons)
  • Continue to offer a greater breadth of extra-curricular sports. (increasing the current provision to include more young people)
  • Offer children a broad, rich and engaging curriculum including; dance, gymnastics, games, swimming and outdoor learning. ( offering different activities to engage more pupils)
  • Introduce new and different sports to encourage more children to participate.
  • Continue to purchase new resources for improved access to curriculum opportunities.
  • Increase the number and range of sports competitions with local schools.
  • Provide fundamental movement skills for all children. ( to develop physical literacy)
  • Maintain affiliations with local sports partnerships. ( to extend opportunities and share good practice)
  • Provide a range of opportunities sign posting outside clubs.
  • Provide staff with training or resources to help teach PE and sport more effectively.
  • Increase opportunities for the least active children. ( introducing wake and shake / playtime leaders)

Impact and Monitoring 

  1. Use of funding will be monitored throughout the year. ( by the PE lead teacher)
  2. Impact will be measured against proposed outcomes. ( to be published by the government)
  3. Number of pupils being signposted to out of school club opportunities.
  4. Increase pupil access to competition; in line with new curriculum.
