PE Sports Premium

What is the PE Sports Premium?

The PE and Sport Premium is an additional layer of funding received by schools. It is ring-fenced so can only be spent on improving the quality and breadth of PE and School Sport. It has been doubled to support schools to implement the government’s Obesity Strategy and to support the health and wellbeing of all young people in the school.

How much does the school receive?

There is now a total grant of £16,000 plus £10 per child on roll. We receive this each academic year until 2020. The grant comes from 3 government departments:

  • Education
  • Health
  • Culture, Media and Sport

How is PE and Sports Premium spent?

We use the grant to increase the quality and breadth of our PE lessons. In addition we have chosen to work with the Outreach Team from Carre’s Grammar School in Sleaford. Their network has over 30 primary schools engaged in regular PE and Sport activities. By working together we can; share best practice,  exchange high quality ideas, engage different young people in events and broaden local competition options.

As a school, we are lucky enough to have a full time P.E teacher, this allows to us to consistently deliver high quality P.E lessons and a breadth of activities.

We do this by focusing work into 4 areas:

  1. High Quality PE.
  2. Competition. We release school staff from their timetable so they can take children to competitions, events and festivals. We also arrange transport where necessary. 
  3. Health and Wellbeing. We are working hard to ensure every child is physically active for a minimum of 30 minutes per school day. This is not limited to PE lessons only. We aim to provide every child with a sporting opportunity every year. This could be a one-off taster event or a regular school-based club. We also work with assessment data to put interventions in place to benefit identified children.
  4. Community. We work with local sports clubs so that our children can continue to lead healthy, active lifestyles beyond school hours. We also develop leadership skills so that our children will be confident in delivering activities to other children and will develop their characters from a young age.

What is the impact of the PE and Sports Premium?

We are able to deliver lessons which cover a wide range of sports including: Football, Hockey, Rugby, Lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee, Cricket, Volleyball, Multi-skills, gymnastics and many more. This has allowed us to stretch and challenge the gifted and talented children we have in school.

Over 75% of children in school are involved at some point in a sporting activity or club. This has come with our ability to attend most competitions running in the local area, including, Golf, Judo, handball, table tennis and cycling.

Community coaching clubs have been able to provide us with expert coaching in regards to Football and this has seen over 50 children attend football sessions over the year, due to its raised profile.

We have recently been awarded the Sainsbury's Gold mark for sports.

How are the Governing body involved?

Ths school governors receive a report from the Headteacher three times a year which covers the above questions. Governors are invited to visit and monitor the impact of our Premium.
