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.

Key achievements to date:

We joined the South Derbyshire School Sport Partnership. Within this package we had access to specialist sports coaching across the whole school, for example Kwik Cricket and Bikeability, and entrance to a range of competitions and events.

We achieved the ‘Silver’ Games Mark in recognition for our commitment to competitive sport.

We used specialist teachers to enhance our current curriculum through the provision of ‘enrichment days’ where children throughout school were able to try sports not part of the PE National Curriculum. The children experienced orienteering and martial arts.

PE equipment was purchased as and when necessary.

An after school club, focussing on different sports each term, ran throughout the year. Funding also subsidised sports clubs run through our Wraparound Care provision.

Funding was used to provide cover for members of staff taking children to tournaments/competitions.

Children went swimming through the year to improve their skills beyond the Y6 expectations.

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

  • Develop the children’s sense of health and wellbeing through their understanding and experience of regular exercise, healthy eating, regular sleep and mental/emotional well- being.
  • Regain the ‘Gold’ Games Mark.
    Improve the quality and range of PE equipment in school.
  • Improve the quality of the children’s experiences at break times – the aim is to reduce the number of behaviour incidents.
  • Develop staff in their ability to assess children in PE lessons.


Total fund allocated: £16,890 – Date Updated: December 2017
