About the PE and Sport Premium

Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.

Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. PE and sport premium grant funding should be used by schools towards these aims.

How do we use it?

We use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:

  1. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  2. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  3. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

What have we achieved?

  • Providing over 250 children with the opportunity to attend one of 14 school sport clubs last academic year
  • Providing over 200 children the opportunity to attend a range of sporting tournaments – we have used a tracker to target and monitor SEND, inactive and pupil premium children for participation in sporting festivals and free to access extra-curricular opportunities.
  • The school have taken pupils to 18 sporting tournaments last year
  • We have upskilled staff so that they are more capable of delivering and assessing a high-quality PE curriculum.
  • Investing in PE equipment to encourage active and enjoyable breaks for the pupils and offer a wider range of opportunities to pupils within the curriculum.
  • Membership of two school sport and physical activity networks – one of which organised ‘Move it March’ - over 600 pupils took part in the ‘Move it March’ challenge and our school finished 2nd in our area of Leicester.
  • Providing hundreds of pupils with the opportunity to partake in three virtual challenges - Virtual Sportshall Athletics competition (overall winners & KS1 winners), Virtual 5K and Virtual Basketball (Year 6 – 3rd place visit).
  • The school received the Silver School Games Mark award from INSPIRE which recognises the school’s commitment to:
    • Promoting high activity levels amongst the pupils
    • Creating positive physical activity and competition experiences for pupils
    • Engaging all pupils, regardless of ability, with sport
