How we use our Sports Grant

What is the Sports Premium Grant?

The PE and Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.

How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per eligible pupil; and Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per eligible pupil.

For Preshute Primary School, this amounts to £17,760 for 2017 - 2018.

We are using this allocation to achieve a number of sustainable objectives:

1. To develop and enhance the teaching of high-quality PE across the curriculum in all classes.

2. To develop the leadership of PE to enable sustainable quality provision.

3. To provide opportunities for physical activity due to the restrictions of our site.

We anticipate that the PE and Sports Premium Grant will lead to:

  • Increased opportunities for all of our pupils to access a wider variety of PE and sports through high quality planning and teaching, leading to increased sports participation and attainment.
  • Opportunities to develop the skills of sportsmanship
  • Develop pupil understanding of the importance of keeping fit and healthy, as well as, ways that they can improve their health and fitness.
  • Pupils who are fitter, healthier and are motivated to continue to improve.
