Sport Funding

PE and Sport Premium


The government provides funding for primary schools to develop PE and sport provision.  

The funding is used to have a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE lessons and is used for:

Specialised professional development opportunities for staff.

Teachers working alongside specialist  PE teachers and coaches.

Purchasing resources and training courses for teachers.

Developing the leadership of PE across the school.

This year we have been unable to attend face to face sports competitions due to Covid restrictions. However, children have continued to take part in competitive sports virtually, collecting points in school and sharing them online. Including:

  • Cross country
  • Athletics
  • Cycling
  • Archery
  • Individual physical challenges
  • "Race to Tokyo" (daily activity earning miles to get to the Tokyo Olympics)

With the return to school, we have focused on the physical activity of children on the playground and have provided playworkers and new play equipment to ensure all children have daily physical activity.

We have subsidised the return of after school sports and all children have taken part in workshops introducing them to different sports including:

  • tennis
  • basketball
  • cycling
  • archery
  • golf

 See the Sports Premium Report 2020-21 for details on our aims and objectives in our use of the funding.
