PE and Sports Premium

This funding has then been extended each year to date.

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.

Our Aims

In order to make full use of this funding and continue to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport, the below was set out in line with whole-school PE targets and needs identified in staff questionnaires and pupil questionnaires:

  • Daily exercise to become a regular part of the curriculum
  • Active play times – supported by LSUPs and support staff
  • NSSPEA training dependant on staff needs
  • To develop active links with community sports and leisure providers


The impact of this funding will be measured through:

  • pupil perception questionnaires measuring the interest of children in different areas of the PE curriculum
  • staff perception questionnaires on subject knowledge confidence and feedback on the quality of support offered by specialist support
  • the increase in the number of children engaging in sporting activities
  • the increase in number of children attending a sports club either in school or outside
