PE and Sport Premium

Impact and Sustainability


The Sport Premium funding has had a significant influence on our whole school development. We have taken huge steps forward in promoting education, school sport and active lifestyles through this funding. A key factor in our planning of the sport premium budget has been ‘variety’, where we believe that all pupils should be provided with a varied, active and engaging curriculum in Sport. For example pupils now have opportunities in: orienteering, golf, sailing, wind-surfing, paddle boarding.

Staff training has identified areas for development and provided opportunities for staff to expand their knowledge in order to offer high quality PE lessons. Teaching Assistants have had bespoke CPD in Invasion Games and Striking and Fielding Games. All staff had CPD in Invasion Games and Gymnastics.

We have adapted from a mainly single sports provider to gain a range of opportunities for both children and staff. We have been ever present at all of the local sporting events which we are invited to. Our development of intra-school provision has influenced our playtimes. Over the past 12 months we have had no significant behaviour issues. Children look forward to their sessions on the Astro, Basketball zone or Fitness Centre.

Sports Funding

All primary schools in England receive a grant from the Department for Education. All schools in receipt of the grant are obliged to publish on their websites details of how they spend their PE and sport grant. This must include details about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
