What is the Sports Premium Funding?

In order to develop an enjoyment of sport and physical activity, and promote a healthy lifestyle in children from an early age, the Government has provided extra funding to schools.


What was our allocation?

Our allocation for 2015/16 was £8,278.


How did we spend our allocation?

In 2015/16, we spent our allocation on:

  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to work with our teachers when teaching PE.
  • Subsidising after-school clubs provided by the sports coaches.
  • Participating in inter-schools competitions organised by one of our feeder secondary schools, including providing transport to/ from the venues.

Subsidising costs of lessons and transport for swimming.


What difference did it make to the PE and sport participation of pupils?

  • A greater number of pupils were involved in a wider range of physical education activities as a result of the increased amount of competitions and after-school clubs.
  • Sports coaches worked with teachers, which allowed teachers to develop their PE teaching and become up-skilled. This has led to improved teaching and learning in PE.
  • Increased capacity and sustainability within the teaching staff.
  • Improved standards in PE.
  • The school offered a greater variety of after school clubs and has continued to develop this area further.
  • Pupils practised and played in a wider range of sports and competitions as a result of being involved in the inter-schools tournaments.
  • Links were improved with other local schools as a result of being involved in the inter-school competitions.
