PE and Sport Premium

Sport Premium Grant is additional funding provided by the government to enable schools to make “additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport”, they offer. Schools are expected to use the premium to:


  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that their school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within their school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following areas:

  • to engage all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • to raise the profile of PE and sport across the school
  • to increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • to provide pupils with a broader experience of a range of sports and activities
  • to increase children’s participation in competitive sport


The amount of sport premium grant which our school received in the academic year 2017-18 was £10,607.42

We used this money to help fund the following:

  • to embed physical activity into the school day through developing an active playground through the employment of a lunchtime play leader (£2712.50)
  • to purchase large fixed play equipment for children to access during lunch and break times in order to facilitate our active playground (£8,982.85)


As a result of our spending of the Sport Premium Grant:

  • an increased number of children are engaged in physical activity during lunchtimes
  • children’s communication skills, concentration levels and ability to work as a team have improved
