What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

•Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE

•New or additional Change4Life sport clubs

•Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport

•Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport

•Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games

•Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

•Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.     

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development

Evaluation and Impact of the PE and School Sports Funding 2013-15


Over the 2 year period, since the PE / School Sports Funding was introduced we have provided children across the school with a varied range of sporting opportunities (traditional and non-traditional) both within the PE curriculum and as additional school activities. These have been delivered by school staff and other professional coaches/ teachers.

Staff have also had opportunities to take part in CPD both as a whole school (staff meetings) and other agencies as well as observation of other professionals. This has resulted in increased skills, confidence and knowledge in delivery of the PE curriculum ensuring teaching and learning are of high quality and that the majority of children make appropriate progress, reaching the required standards of the national curriculum. Current tracking shows the vast majority of children are on track to make expected progress or better by

the end of the academic year.

New Sports / Activities introduced include: New Age Kurling, Boccia,

Golf, Eurohoc, Handball, and Basketball. These have been accessed by children of all ages.

Additional School Clubs

Key Stage relevant football clubs (also a lunchtime football club run by York City one day a week)and a new Dance club was set up as a result of the parents survey These clubs are very well attended and often over-subscribed.

Other events

Children across KS1 and KS2 have also had opportunities to take part in a number of cluster events, tournaments and competitions – these have included indoor athletics, cricket, football, netball, hockey, swimming gala, and cross country.


Our Children say….

“I like PE it makes you very strong”

“I likes Netball because it was very challenging”

“I love PE and love exercise ”

“PE is important because it gets you into all the sports”
