Sports premium

The PE Premium provides ring fenced money to primary schools to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities offered to their pupils. The funding is currently worth £150 million per year and is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department of Health and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Our allocation for 2015/16 was £8219 (Carry forward from 2013/14 was £2551)

Area Impact
Sports Partnership The children have received Early Riders (R/Y1) – this has helped the children’s ability to ride a standard bicycle, by developing their balancing skills. The children have entered tournaments for High Fives and Tennis. The children reached the County Finals in both events.
CPD Package The PE leader was supported in writing and carrying out the PE action plan. All teachers have received training in planning outstanding PE lessons and also in improving fitness levels of children through PE lessons. The Headteacher attended the PE conference and was updated on the suggested uses of the PE funding. Staff have been provided with assessments which will enable them to write more accurate reports at the end of the year.
Enrichment Days Children enjoyed activities beyond those we already teach in school – handball, goalball, bocchia, volleyball, fencing and archery.
Fitness Baseline and Follow-up Assessment Children’s fitness levels were reported to the teachers. They were then able to differentiate for particular children within lessons and encourage healthier, fitter lifestyles for some children.
PE Equipment New equipment has enhanced PE lessons through the quality and quantity of purchases.
Gymnastics Coaching Children have developed their skills in gymnastics and entered the local competitions. Our teams came first and second in the competitions entered.


Our allocation for 2016/17 is £8455. The planned spending is as follows:

We will again be joining the South Derbyshire School Sport Partnership. Within this package we will have access to specialist sports coaching across the whole school, for example Kwik Cricket and Bikeability, entrance to a range of competitions and events and support towards achieving the Silver School Games Mark.

As part of this partnership we will also be buying into the CPD package. This entitles us to mentor support for our new PE leader in developing the PE curriculum, as well as assistance in driving forward our PE action plan. Through this package we also plan to train Midday supervisors in leading physical activities at lunchtime and also children in becoming Mini Leaders.

As last year, we plan to use specialist teachers to enhance our current curriculum through the provision of ‘enrichment days’ where children throughout school will be able to try sports not part of the PE National Curriculum.We will try to cover different sports to last year’s programme. Our teachers will be able to work alongside specialist teachers and this in turn will develop their own skills in planning, delivering and assessing PE.

PE equipment will be purchased as and when necessary, after an audit of current equipment. Equipment for playtimes and lunchtimes will also be purchased. Our intention is to also purchase recourses for use by the EYFS children in their outdoor area, such as scooters and bikes.

An after school club, focussing on different sports each term, will run throughout the year. This will support teams and individuals in readiness for entering tournament/competitions.

Funding will also be used to provide cover for members of staff taking children to tournaments/competitions.

The school’s ethos is one of success, where good teaching and good behaviour flourish
