How are we spending our Sports Premium funding?


All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement. []

What is Sport Premium Funding?

Schools receive PE and Sport Premium Funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 - in our case, Years 3 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make addition and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.




Overarching 2018-19 Sports Premium Strategy:


  • To increase participation by pupil premium children in PE and school sport, both within and beyond the school day
  • To provide more active enrichment opportunities for pupil premium children
  • To seek opportunities to engage reluctant participants in PE and school sport through novel and new activities
  • To increase engagement and activity levels for all children to meet the 30 minutes of physical activity per day (on top of the statuary 2hrs/wk PE lessons)
  • To increase physical learning opportunities for all children using the outdoor spaces of the school site
  • To further raise the profile of PE and promote healthy ‘mind and body’ lifestyle approaches
