Sports Premium

The Sports Premium was introduced to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles.  It is allocated to schools to work with all pupils.

Purpose of the funding:

  • Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses of 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 material for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visit

Schools are free to spend the Sports Premium as they see fit, however our approach and vision for our pupils is to ensure that all are offered 'rich opportunities and memorable experiences' and that those from poorer socio-economic backgrounds do not suffer barriers which hamper their progress and attainment.

We believe that: -

  • All of our children should and will benefit from the teaching and learning    opportunities that Sport Premium funding provides.
  • Appropriate provision is made for all pupils belonging to vulnerable groups, including those who are from socially and economically disadvantaged groups.

We hope our enhanced provision will increase the PE skills of our children but also make a significant contribution to their personal well-being and we strive to develop children into healthy, fit and well young people who enjoy sport and take personal responsibility for their fitness and wellbeing.
