Sports Premium Statement

What is the ‘Sports Premium’?


In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.


When asked about the 'Sport Premium' at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: ‘When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London's vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focussing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.’ (Lord Coe) 




Use of Sport’s Premium September 2017 – July 2018


We will receive funding for this year of £17,780. Projected costings may vary due to the availability of coaches and changing needs of certain year groups.


This year we are focusing on: 

- Offering additional clubs to each year group, over the year we will give increased opportunity for children to participate in the sports and offer a wider variety of sports through the School Sports Network.  


- We will identify pupils whose participating in sporting activities has been either reluctant or low, and to encourage them to engage with a range of sporting activities


- We will take part in more competitions across a larger number of sports, giving more children the opportunity to experience competition in sports. 


- We will be investigating ways to develop our playground in order to encourage the children to be active at play times and lunchtime
