Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium Funding

We have received our funding allocation for 2018/2019.  We have been allocated £17,970

Allocations for the academic year 2018 to 2019 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2018 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil
  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1,000 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
  • fund capital expenditure

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
  • what percentage of pupils within their year 6 cohort for academic year 2018 to 2019 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.

Previous years; 

In 2017/2018 we received £18,010 which in line with our sports focus plan enabled us to provide more specialist sports clubs, dance classes and to include our Early Years in PE and Dance.  We were able to offer this as well as our continuing commitment to the schools games mark, new equipment, increasing participation in tournaments, improving opportunities for all in a range of sports and to provide CPD for all staff. 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
  • Sports Tournaments
  • Countywide participation in tournaments and football
  • Established and sustained football teams 
  • Dance and PE within Nursery
  • CPD for all staff to improve quality and sustainability including 'outstanding teachers of PE CPD for selected staff'
  • New sports equipment

In 2016/2017 we received £9,035 with the focus on receiving the school games mark and as part of our sports development plan to promote sports, PE and healthy lifestyles for all our children.  .

In 2015/16 our sports premium funding allocation was £8,895.
