Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is continuing to provide funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary school headteachers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.


We will be awarded  £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil in year 1-6.  

Key criteria to measure the effective use of this funding include:

• An increased participation in PE and sport.

• All children develop healthy lifestyles.

• All children reach the performance levels they are capable of.

• Development of opportunities for children to apply, rehearse and refine skills and knowledge acquired in a variety of PE/ sports contexts.

• Inclusion for all through diverse experiences which foster an ethos of fair-play and competition.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety. 2018/19

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


65 %

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort 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?


*Swimming in 2019/20 and 2020/21 didn't take place for years 3-6 due to the national lockdown.
