PE and Sports Premium

What is the PE and Sports Premium?

The Government launched the PE and Sports Premium in September 2013, which was initially for a two year period but has since been continued. The aim of this money is to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of pupils aged over 5 and under 11 years of age, so that pupils develop healthy lifestyles.

We use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer.

This means that we can use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Such as:

  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • providing existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introducing new sports or activities and encouraging more pupils to take up sport
  • supporting and involving the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • running sports competitions
  • increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • running sports activities with other schools

Each year we plan our spending and evidence its impact upon our pupils. Below are the details of our expenditure for 2018/19:

Evidening the impact of the Primary PE and Sports Premium – 2019


The school is required to report on the standards in swimming of the Year 6 children. The information below is for our 2018/19 Year 6 cohort:

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety Percentages
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres? 88%
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]? 77%
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations? 94%
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way? No
