What is ‘PE and Sport Premium funding’?

The government provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013 to 2018 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding has been provided to promote and encourage children to participate in a range of physical activity both in and out of school in order to prevent concerning statistics in relation to obesity coming to fruition.

PE and Sport Premium funding has been provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school Headteachers and is ring-fenced to be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

The Government believes that Headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

• The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers

• The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided

• The reports that schools are required to publish online for Parents

In 2017/18 all primary schools will continue to receive funding for PE and Sport.

Since the introduction of the PE and Sport Premium, Wragby Primary School has used the funding to employ specialist PE teachers to work alongside staff, using a coaching method. Exemplar planning has been produced, PE sessions have been modelled and taught alongside coaches and strategies for assessment have been shared. Sports clubs, tournaments and competitions have been subsidised allowing a wide range of sports activities to be offered to the children. PE and sporting equipment has continued to be audited, replaced and enhanced.

P.E. and Sport Premium Funding Report – 2017 - 2018


For the academic Year September 2017 to July 2018 the school will receive £17,570 PE and Sport Premium Funding.


We must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer to pupils.


This means we will use the premium to:

1. To develop or add to the PE already in place in school (referring to the aims below)

2. To make improvements now for future pupils


The 5 key indicators where improvements should be seen are:

1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, aiming for 30 minutes a day within school time.

2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

5. Increased participation in competitive sport.


The National Curriculum aims are for all children:

  • To be physically active, working towards a target of 30 minutes activity during and after the school day (excluding general play times)
  • To excel in a broad range of activities
  • To engage in competition
  • To lead healthy lifestyles

We aim to do meet the curriculum expectations with the help of the Sport Premium Funding by providing:

  • A more inclusive curriculum
  • A growth in traditional and alternative sports
  • Improvements in our partnership work with other schools
  • Creating links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills
