The Sports Premium

Primary School’s Sports Funding

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government provides funding to facilitate substantial primary school sports activities.  The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of 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.

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?

You can download from this page our evidence impact reports for 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 academic years.

We commit to the following strategies

  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE
  • Increasing participation in school sport
  • Development of the Teaching Staff

Every child in school is invited to attend Wake and Shake every school morning between 8.20am and 8.50am, we are able to provide this service by investing in our highly qualified teaching assistant team.  This service is further enabled by staff outside the school gates every morning ensuring the safety of all children and encouraging increased participation.

Each year we exceed the dedicated grant which is testament to the importance the school puts on physical activity for children.  In addition to these costings we also provide through the National Curriculum weekly swimming lessons for all Year 4 children moving into Year 5 every year.
