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 2018 - 2019.

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

1. To increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school. This is through initiatives such as the daily mile and new HiiT training sessions before the school day begin.

2. To increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport through CPD. Coaches (for skipping, boxing, rugby and squash) continue to be used to upskill children and staff in particular sports - including those children who go on to compete in sports festivals.

3. To offer a broader range of sports and activities offered to all pupils. This is achieved through Sports Week and lunchtime coaches. There are also plans to enlarge the school hall which will ensure sufficient whole-class PE sessions - such as Gymnastics - can take place.

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, and use of professional coaches - 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.
