PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


From September 2013, the Government has provided schools with funding to be spent on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding must be spent on improving the provision of Physical Education and Sport for the benefit of pupils, encouraging healthy lifestyles.

In 2022/2023 we are using our PE Premium (of £18,448*) to:

  • Providing targeted activities to involve and encourage the least active children in our school through lunchtime clubs (£2945)* and intervention time (£589)*– £3534*
  • Planning additional swimming catch up to ensure that children are able to swim by the end of KS2 – £2625* (4 weeks)
  • Further promote competitive team games and allow for pupils to attend sports competitions across the local authority - £1500*
  • Ensure that the progression in PE is clear in curriculum planning - £1341*

*estimated figure


In 2021/2022 we used our PE Premium of £18,333 to:

  • Give children specialist PE provision to improve levels of fitness across the school £16,750
  • Organise sport competitions with other phases, schools and across the LA. - £1,583

*estimated figure


Impacts of PE Premium in 2021/2022:
•    All pupils across the school actively participate in at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day and this can be seen in the daily mile that Y1-Y6 participate in. 
•    Physical fitness has improved, particularly in KS1, where pupils had not experienced consistent daily mile and physical education lessons due to the disruptions of the pandemic.
•    High levels of concentration and focus in PE sessions.
•    Identified pupils have a clearer understanding of the expectations of sports leadership in order to facilitate competitive sports amongst their peers. 
•    An increase in the pupils taking part in sports based games during the lunchtime break and the after school clubs, including both boys and girls. 
•    The school have participated in football competitions with other schools in the local authority and have been successful in these. 
•    The annual sports day, allowed pupils to share their developed confidence and improved fitness levels. 
•    We have seen greater levels of effort and enthusiasm for competitive sports. 
•    Profile of PE remains high across the school.
