PE and Sports Premium

Article 31:


Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.

Sports premium is additional money the schools received for pupils in years 1-6. The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across


  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport


In the initial years at school (pre-school and reception class), PE lessons are focussed on confidence, balance and basic co-ordination skills. Of course, we also spend a lot of time learning how to change clothes independently.

As pupils develop skills, the range of activities broadens out to ensure all children experience a variety of different sports. Working with the Local Governing Board (LGB), parents and pupils, our staff will develop a timetable of ‘tasters’ and events, with local providers so pupils can try activities and sports outside the usual curriculum offer. This maybe additional tennis, cricket or archery.

Once the school begins to receive this funding, we will publish an annual report on spending, along with our plans.
