PE and Sports Premium
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Schools must use this funding to make additional and sustainable improvement to the quality of PE and sport that we offer. This means that the premium should be used to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our 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.

How much and what do we spend our funding on?
Details of how the PE funding was spent last academic year, our plans for this year can be found in the documents below.
The PE Hub
Staff use The PE Hub, which is a complete PE resource packed with lesson plans, videos, music, printable resources, and assessment tools that staff use in supporting them to meet Ofsted requirements and make PE more impactful for children's learning.
The PE Hub supports us to deliver high-quality lessons by harnessing pupils’ natural enthusiasm for PE. We provide challenge and have high expectations with clear success criteria that help keep pupils on track.
The PE Hub has a huge range of progressive content for our teachers to use to design their curriculum. Building on a foundation of physical literacy in Reception, at KS1 children learn fundamental movement skills that prepares them for modified games at KS2. In addition to games activities, each year group has access to outdoor and adventurous activities and two units of gymnastics and dance, ensuring children’s learning is broad and balanced.
