Sports Premium

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Sports Premium Impact from 2016/17

The impact of sports premium from 2016/17 is evident from the rise in attainment at the end of each key stage.

End of KS1

  • 2015/16 – 80% achieved end of key stage expectations.
  • 2016/17 – 87% achieved end of key stage expectations.

End of KS2

  • 2015/16 – 73% achieved end of key stage expectations.
  • 2016/17 – 77% achieved end of key stage expectations.

There has also been an increase in pupil engagement with sport and PE and it has had a positive impact on physical fitness, healthy lifestyles, skills and behaviour across the school.

We have promoted sustainability by investing in CPD for all staff, we have also taken into account the availability of local sports clubs when choosing sports to offer as after school and in school activities. We will continue to monitor the impact to inform future spending in this area.
