PE & Sports Grant

PE and Sport Premium Grant



As part of the government's commitment to sport, they have provided schools with a grant which is to be spent to increase children's participation in sport and consolidate the legacy left by the London 2012 Olympics.


The Government gives this money to schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered in school.  We use the money in a variety of way to support the personal development of pupils, such as the opportunities they have to learn about eating healthily and maintaining an active lifestyle, including opportunities to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities.


Guidance from the DfE makes clear that:

All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation, and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.

The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officer guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).

The impact of the Stay Active support is to ensure the statutory 2 hours of high quality PE provision is delivered.





We are ensuring that this work is sustainable by focusing on the training of staff to continue this work in future years – working with the professional coach to team teach and joint plan to improve their teaching practice.


Impact of spending 2020-2021.


Carefully targeted interventions have enabled a wide range of our learners to become more confident with managing their emotions, teamwork and valuing themselves and others. The behaviour of this group of children has improved dramatically and their attendance and learning outcomes across the curriculum reflect the positive impact of the sports intervention.


Lunchtime clubs are now established and the children in 5/6 have the opportunity to sign up for archery, dodgeball, basketball, athletics, football and skipping. The children are heavily in involved in leading the games and in choosing which clubs to start up.


The impact of replacing equipment has meant that children of all ages have been able to access basketball during lunchtime as well as through formal PE teaching. 


We have also enabled staff CPD on Tennis coaching both in person and online and the children now have access to a highly qualified Tennis coaching. 


Within our ImproveIT package we have been enabled to share provision with families during lockdown and this has supported online PE lessons to ensure the physical wellbeing of the children during lockdown.  


Across the school it is evident that a much greater number of children are accessing a wider range of physical activity both in school and at home. This links well to our Respect value. 


Throughout the school year there have been several events to promote the love of PE and value of physical activity such as: Travel to Tokyo, Healthy Selfies, Sports Personalities of the Class, Mr Baxter Spelling workout, Cosmic Yoga, Thai Chi, Skipping challenge along with Get Active Week. In the Summer term we are having a Japanese linked day to tie in Travel to Tokyo with other curriculum areas. 


We have also run themed linked physical activities throughout the school year.


Ofsted said:  

“The school uses additional funding from the physical education (PE) and sport premium to promote healthy lifestyles and to enable pupils to take part in inter-school tournaments. The funding has also been used to provide new playground equipment, as well as a sports coach who offers a range of additional physical activities at lunchtimes.”

This year we are improving how we monitor the impact of this spending sufficiently closely to ensure that all pupils benefit from this provision and that it provides good value for money.
