Sports Premium

The Government allocates a pot of money to schools to support sports and healthy active lifestyles. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they offer.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that the school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is 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

Reviews from 2019 to 2020 and 2020 to 2021

Year 6 pupils Swimming

2020 – 2021 Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

% of pupils who can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres


% of pupils who can use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke


% of pupils who can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

Not for this current year due to Covid restrictions and absences. We would normally pay for top up lessons for Year 5 which we will resume next year
