Sports Premium

Our aim is to encourage our children to try something new, something that we have not offered before or something that may not necessarily have been available to them. By providing these opportunities we hope that they will develop a life-long love of PE and sport and lead active lifestyles well into adulthood. We want the experiences to be positive, fun and fulfilling.

Vision: ALL pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


Objective: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools against 5 key indicators:

1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

5. increased participation in competitive sport

 Sports Premium Allocation


Sports Premium

2017 – 2018




2019 - 2020


The Association for Physical Education suggests that possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE.
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport.
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/Sport.
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games.
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/Sport. 

Funding for 2019-2020 allowed us to continue to offer after school sports clubs that were run by specialist sports coaches. Some of the clubs were timetabled to coincide with competitions that were organised by the School Games Organiser and local strategic partners whilst others were to encourage participation in sporting activities.

We have and are providing a good range of after school sporting or active clubs as well as entering more local competitions.  The grid below shows some of the clubs and competitions we have entered over the last three years. We seek to maintain those activities that prove beniticial for the long term.
