Primary Sports Funding

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that we should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, we can use the funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

The PE Strategy and Sports Premium funding is reviewed annually in April.

Evaluation of spending 2018-2019

In 2018-2019 we received £14016 in Sports Premium money. 
We targeted funds to:
  • Enhance the PE provision for children
  • Set a new standard in children’s activity levels
  • Meet the inclusion requirements and the value for money criteria set by Ofsted
Our main focuses for the year have been:
  1. to resource, train and set up weekly beach school sessions accessed by the whole school where all children walk the 3+ miles to and from the beach; learn about the environment and our impact on it, gain a sense of wellbeing from being in the outdoors; gain an understanding about the importance of being physically active, regardless of whether one is playing sport; use and enjoy their local environment.
  2. to support inter-school sporting activities, both during swimming and PE, and by taking part in competitions as part of Alnwick Small Schools.

  3. to continue to offer a range of sports, signposted through local clubs and facilities, to encourage greater participation beyond school.
