Sports and P.E Funding


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 PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve the government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day. The funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils, making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they provide. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.



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



To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.


Over the last three years, Sports Premium funding has been used for:

  • Qualified coaches work alongside our teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons and clubs.  
  • The purchase of new equipment to enhance engagement and enjoyment levels.  
  • The purchase of new equipment for curriculum and lunchtime provision. 
  • Professional development/support for teacher with responsibility for PE within the school to ensure wide range of experiences and opportunities are available in a small school setting. 
  • Engagement with partnership tournaments.
  • The purchase of new equipment for curriculum and lunchtime provision.
  • Guest speakers to inspire, motivate and reinforce school values and learning through sport. 
  • The training of Active Leaders from within the pupil body, leading on activities at break and lunchtime.


Impact of funding:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport
  • Improved levels of resilience evidenced within school community
