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 2018-19 was £22,908

We used this money to help fund the following:

  • to provide extra curricular activity sessions for children (£17,464)
  • to purchase teaching materials to support staff in delivering physical activity sessions (£800)
  • to contribute towards future purchasing of large fixed play equipment (£4,644)


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

  • an increased number of children are engaged in physical activity outside of PE lessons
  • children’s communication skills, concentration levels and ability to work as a team have improved
  • improvement in gross motor skills of children in EYFS
