Sports Premium

Implementing the “Sports Premium” in our School. 

The Government has continued to give every Primary School funding to develop Physical education and competitive sport. 

 In our school we are using this funding by working with the Pennine Sports Partnership to:

  • Increase the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate.
  • Make links to other community sports providers.
  • Develop additional clubs and activities for children, outside the curriculum.
  • Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through sport.
  • Give extra support in PE to our most talented children and include those with special needs in sport.
  • Bring PE and sports specialist teachers and coaches into school to work alongside class teachers in lessons.

In this way, our children will gain new skills and experiences and teachers will learn new techniques and knowledge to aid them in teaching sport and PE.

The long term aim is higher quality lessons and improved learning for all children.

Please follow the link below to see how we have been spending the money this year to achieve all of the goals set out by the funding, we hope that as this funding continues into the future we can continue to make lasting legacies, which will benefit this generation and those in the future.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below:

What percentage of your Year 5 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


What percentage of your Year 5 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


What percentage of your Year 5 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


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?



* These figures are a lot lower than we normally aim for but, due to school closing early because of     the COVID-19 pandemic, the children haven’t had a swimming lesson since March.
