PE Premium Funding

What is PE Sport Funding?


The Government provides additional funding for physical education (PE) and sport in schools. This funding  is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision resulting in increased numbers of pupils developing healthy lifestyles, raising their performance levels and engaging in PE and sport.


The additional PE and sport funding allocated to our school from 1st September for the academic year 2017/18 was £18,500.

  • Participation at half-termly year group festivals
  • Additional lunchtime and after school clubs for all pupils
  • Increasing the amount of Intra-School Competitions
  • Increasing the participation in inter-schools competitions 
  • Cycling proficiency TA support for cycling
  • Contribute towards the development of a specific cooking area in school

  • Continual renewal and updating of PE resources

How will we use the PE Premium Funding in 2018/19?


In addition to the areas mentioned above, we will be using the PE Premium Funding in 18/19 to develop two key areas:


1. Encouraging even more active lifestyles during break and dinner times. This will focus on showing the children different equipment we can purchase and install. The children will then choose what they would like and evaluate the impact that it is having. We will be aiming to use the Pupil Voice 'Sports' Coaches' within this process.


2. Further developing our PE provision so that we are offering experiences that are even broader and more balanced. Last year, we purchased whole class archery and new age kurling equipment and integrated this into our PE curriculum. This year, we will be looking at investing in whole class boxing and boccia equipment. The teaching and integrating into the PE curriculum will be supported by the plans available on the Sainsbury's Schools' Award website. These resources can also be used as part of our extra curricular club provision.
