Sports Premium

What is Sports Premium?

The Government provides a sum of money for funding primary school sport. This funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and money goes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of PE and School Sport for all their children.

We will measure impact through:

We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, across the curriculum including Forest School activities.  We will increase the participation in outdoor activities, PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.   

We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
In short:

  • Quality assurance of our PE Curriculum through observations of the quality of planning, teaching and learning
  • Monitoring participation in clubs and school team participation
  • Creating sporting opportunities for our young children.
  • Creating a love of outside learning that incorporates a healthy lifestyle.
