PE and Sports Premium Funding

P.E and Sports Premium Funding

Academic year 2018-2019 – Total funding allocated £19,690


In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of 150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1st September 2013. Since 2017, the government have now improved and enhanced the amount of money provided to schools to invest in PE, Sport and Healthy Lifestyles. Schools will now receive £16000, plus an additional £10 per pupil.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

From government guidance (PE and Sport Premium in Primary Schools), October 2015:

  • Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvement to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

2019-20 Plans for Funding

We plan to continue programmes such as Physical Literacy and the Daily Mile. Further spending on outdoor facilities to create zones for lunchtime activity will benefit all the children. Catch-up programmes for our swimmers to ensure a higher proportion can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres are also being planned for.

Physical Literacy Intervention Programme

Six of our Teaching assistants have completed Physical Literacy Training in order to run small groups with children throughout the school who require assistance with their physical development. This programme is aimed to strengthen muscles and minds.

Active Schools Programme

This is a whole school approach to physical activity. We have introduced all the children taking part in the Daily Mile. Some children are attending Rammie’s Healthy Hero lunchtime club.

We have also introduced more sessions of active learning within the classroom.

Gifted and Talented PE

A selection of children across all year groups attended PE sessions ran by the Schools Sports Partnership.


Staff and students have received support and training from the Schools Sports partnership in order to assure the quality of PE lessons.

Extra-Curricular Activities.

We have a range of after school activities provided by Premier Sport. We have a boys and a girl’s football team who train at lunchtimes and who compete in leagues and tournaments. A group of children took part in the Brownlee Brothers’ Triathlon.
