Primary PE and Sport Premium Grant

PE and Sport Premium Funding 2016-17

What is the Sports Premium?

In March 2013 the Government announced a major new funding initiative to support the delivery of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This cross-government funding is provided by the Department for Education, with contributions from the Department of Health and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.

The PE and sport premium is paid directly to primary schools and can only be spent on improving the quality of PE and sport provision for all pupils.

 Rationale for the use of Sports Premium:

  • All children benefit regardless of sporting ability.
  • The most able/talented children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments against other schools.
  • Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
  • Teaching staff are given the subject knowledge and confidence to teach high quality PE through team teaching with a PE specialist.
  • Children understand the importance of leading healthy active lifestyles.

With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, the vision the school has for 2016/17 and beyond with regards to enhancing PE and School Sport is the following:

  • All teaching staff will continue to benefit from CPD with the schools PE specialist.
  • Continue to develop a number of different after school sports clubs so children are able to compete against each other and against children from other schools.
  • Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through Playground Leader Training.
  • Develop opportunities for intra-school competition.
  • Continue to develop our KS1 outdoor areas, making them fit for purpose to enhance physical activity, improve fine and gross motor skills and health and well-being.
  • Replace lost or broken PE equipment with new fit for purpose equipment to enhance the delivery of PE and School Sport.

Impact 2016/17

For the 2016-17 academic year we received £9220.00 PE and sport premium funding.

Breakdown of the funding for 2016-17:

Specialist sports coach                                                                              £8075.00

PE and play equipment                                                                              £1125.00

LPSA annual affiliation fee                                                                         £    20.00

Total expenses                                                                                             £9220.20


The effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment:

  • Increased quality in the delivery of PE lessons through team teaching with PE specialist.
  • Staff have been given the subject knowledge and confidence to teach high quality PE lessons.
  • An increase in the number of children participating in extra-curricular sports, particularly in KS1 multi-sports and gymnastics.
  • Due to the improvement in the quality of PE lessons, most children, particularly those in KS1, have demonstrated good progress towards the National Curriculum objectives in PE.
  • KS1 children have benefited from the purchase of physical activity equipment for playtimes. This has improved their fine and gross motor skills.
  • Due to the increase in participation figures in KS2 cross-country and football club, this has led to an increase in the number of children participating in competitive sport.
  • The school also achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze Mark Award for the 2015/16 academic year.

How we will make sure these improvements are sustainable:

To ensure that these improvements are sustainable in the future we will continue to use the funding to employ a specialist sports coach. The specialist sports coach will continue to work with all teachers from Foundation Stage to Key Stage Two to develop the skills and confidence of all teachers. This will ensure that all teachers are able to deliver high quality PE lessons, with or without the support of a sports coach and make the delivery of high quality PE at Stonebow sustainable in the future.
