What is the Sports Premium?
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
They are spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of funding
Article 6 - Your right to be healthy
Being physically healthy and active is important for a child’s development. It has been proven that physical activity improves academic achievement, increases children’s energy levels, making them feel more energetic and ready for learning. This year, we are also focusing on using a growth mindset approach to physical education and sports.
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
How have we spent our Sport Premium Money in 2018/19?
- Specialist training with an experienced Physical Education Teacher delivering continuous CPD throughout the year for the teachers, offering resources, advice and support.
- Different sports incorporated within the curriculum and after school clubs, this includes Martial Arts, Lacrosse and Dodgeball.
- To improve the quality of lunchtime sports by using a specialist coach to teach a wide range of different sports and work with children on behaviour.
- To allow children to enjoy sports and physical activity during breakfast club (Man City Coach).
- To continue to offer all our children competitive opportunities both within school and beyond school in a range of sports
- To develop sports leadership skills in Year 5 and 6 Sports Leaders

PE is taught following the Manchester Scheme of work. The scheme of work has been amended in order to incorporate recommendations from the 2014 National Curriculum. Children in key stages 1 & 2 have 2 hours of PE timetabled per week, which consists of Dance, Games, Gymnastics, Swimming (in year 4), Outdoor and Adventurous activities and Athletics (in upper key stage 2).
Year 5 pupils are involved in a 3 day residential to Gyhll Head and all Year 4 pupils take part in Forest Crew. These involve outdoor adventurous activities. In addition, this year, a group of our Reception children will be taking part in Wild Crew to introduce them to outdoor adventure activities.
EYFS - Early Years Foundation Stage children have continuous access to daily outdoor activities e.g the bike track, obstacle courses and the climbing frame. This provides daily opportunities for the children to develop their gross motor skills. Nursery also enjoy a weekly Write Dance lesson.
In addition to this, children in reception will access one 30 minute dance lesson per week (autumn term), one 30 minute games lesson per week (spring term) and one 30 minute gymnastics lesson per week (summer term).
Key Stage 1 – children have 2x 40 minute lessons each week to develop specific Fundamental Movement Skills through dance, gymnastics and games.
Key Stage 2 – children will have 2x 40 minute lessons each week covering a range of activities including OAA, athletics, gymnastics and games.
Pupils in year 4 follow the programme of study for swimming. When swimming is happening one indoor session is dropped, the remaining indoor session is divided between gymnastics, dance or specialist provision.
Please see our Swimming Data file attached.
Being Active during Breakfast Club
To improve punctuality and attendance, additional physical activities are provided to develop children’s fundamental movement skills (agility, coordination and balance) every morning during breakfast club with the aim to also improve social skills.
Being Physically Active during Lunchtime
Sport-specific skills are offered at lunchtime by trained staff. Different sports are practised across the year. Sports covered include; football, basketball, hockey, cricket, rounders, tennis and athletics.
We attend sports competitions against other primary schools. We have had several successes over the past few years in sports competitions such as netball, cricket, football and tag rugby.
