PE and Sport Premium Funding
We have received our funding allocation for 2017/2018. The funding has increased to £18,010.
Allocations for the academic year 2017 to 2018 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2017 census, as follows:
- Schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil
- Schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1000 per pupil
Terms on which the programme is allocated to schools
The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. The Secretary of State does not consider the following expenditure as falling within the scope of additional or sustainable improvement:
- Employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of schools’ core staffing budgets
- Teaching the minimum requirements of your existing PE curriculum
Academies and free schools must publish, on their website, information about their use of the premium by 4 April 2018. - Our statement will be published here by 4th April 2018
Schools must publish:
- The amount of premium received
- A full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
- What impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
- How the improvements will be sustainable in the future
- How many pupils within their year 6 cohort can do each of the following:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
If selected, schools must also take part in a sampling review to scrutinise their compliance with these conditions.
In 2016/2017 we received £9,035 with the focus on receiving the school games mark. The funding was used in-line with the sports development plan with the following achievements;
- Health in Education - Gold Award
- Swimming Opportunities for year 4 & 5

In 2015/16 our sports premium funding allocation was £8,895 which was used as part of our sports development plan to promote sports, PE and healthy lifestyles for all our children.
