PE and Sport Premium

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 able to start face to face competitions and tournaments again. We have used funding to enter the competitions and provide transport. Most of our KS1 and all our KS2 children have been given the opportunity to compete against other schools including competitions in:

  • Football
  • Netball
  • Cricket
  • Rounders
  • Swimming

We have even taken part in an international athletics competition with schools in South Africa as part of the Bambisanini Project.

To ensure children are active every day, 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 provided after school sports clubs for all children, including free places for children in receipt of free school meals including:

  • tennis
  • football
  • netball
  • tag rugby
  • multi-sports
  • dance

To widen children's experience of sports and exercise we have provided workshops for children such as cycling and outdoor adventurous activities. We have also subsidised residential places to ensure all children could experience adventurous activity at Bewerley Park in the Yorkshire Dales.

Our younger children benefit from building strength and gross motor skills so we have invested in equipment they can use to climb, balance and jump.

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