PE & Sport Premium

What is PE and Sport Premium?

Since September 2013, the government has been providing additional funding for Physical Education (PE), to improve provision of PE and sport within primary phase schools.This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census.

DfE VISION FOR THE PRIMARY PE & SPORT PREMIUM

All pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


PE & SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING ALLOCATIONS

Schools receive PE & Sport Premium Funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. The funding for 2016-17 was calculated on the following basis:

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.   

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.

In July 2017 the DfE confirmed ministerial decisions on the allocation formula for the doubled primary PE and Sport Premium.  The high-level changes are that, from September 2017: Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil; and Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This is a straight doubling of the current formula and will mean that along with all schools we will be able to deliver further improvements to our PE and Sport provision.

The allocation in 2016-17 was £9350.

The allocation for 2017-18 was £14789.

The allocation for 2018-2019 is yet to be confirmed in its entirety but we have received the summer term payment of £7779

Impact of spending for 17-18

  • Membership of BPSS has allowed us to offer additional opportunities for children to participate in sporting events e.g. gymnastics competitions, football competitions, tag rugby, cricket, interschool athletics at Allianz Park.

  • Extra active time in the curriculum made available for EYFS, KS1 and 5/6 which has increased children’s skills and confidence in PE.

  • Attendance at events and maintenance of existing teams has been possible in the absence of a PE leader.

  • Cover and additional overtime hours has meant more children have been able to participate in competitions and events.

  • Better quality equipment being available at lunchtimes and breaktimes in infant playgrounds.

  • Being active and living a healthy lifestyle continues to be promoted at school. 84% of children agreed or strongly agreed that they are encouraged to look after their health at school.

  • Further funds are now available for significant expenditure on providing new and better sporting opportunities in the Junior Playground.


It is expected that Sports Premium spending should mean there is measurable improvement against the following five key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.  

  2. The profile of PE and Sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport.  

  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.


In light of this we intend to spend the further Sports Premium budget in the following ways:


  1. Following some tracking of which children are yet to be involved in an active club and what interests they have, we will aim to buy in further sports provision to encourage participation by more children e.g. speed stacking club

  2. Additional spending on equipment ( some larger) to support the use of the new canteen space for active learning and sports.

  3. Additional spending on equipment and storage in the Junior Playground to mirror provision in the Infants and further raise the profile of being active at break times.

  4. Additional spending on adults to organise more opportunities for more children to compete or take part in active events.

  5. Additional training and updated resources to support and improve quality of day to day teaching of PE.



Swimming: Children are assessed on their swimming in Y5/6. This is done at the end of the (term's) sequence of lessons. In Autumn 2018 all the Y6 children in Chestnut class were assessed to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres and use a range of strokes effectively. The cohort completed safe-rescue in different water-based situations during their Y5 lessons. 

Oak class will be assessed during their swimming sessions (Spring 2019). Elm class will be assessed during their swimming sessions (Summer 2019).
