Sport's Funding

Improving the provision of Physical Education and Sport in primary schools

The Government is providing additional funding to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport in primary schools.

The funding (provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport) will be allocated to primary school Headteachers who will have the freedom to choose how to spend the money. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on improving the provision of PE and Sport in schools. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. The premium should be used to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your 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

Ofsted assesses how primary schools use the primary PE and sport premium. They measure its impact on pupil outcomes, and how effectively governors hold school leaders to account for this.

Throughout the year many indoor and outdoor sports are covered within our PE curriculum. We try and encourage a very active ethos around school, so pupils should always have a full PE kit hanging on their pegs from the first day of term. Sports kit is also used as a backup if uniform gets damaged or dirty.

We ask that PE kit is regularly checked because some pupils can have huge growth spurts in a short amount of time. We also ask that every item of kit is clearly named.

The following is the basic kit list:

  • maroon polo shirt with logo
  • navy shorts / skort
  • PE socks
  • Trainers    (I would advise trainers instead of plimsoles due to the extra support and cushioning provided within the soles)
  • navy tracksuit top and bottoms
  • drawstring PE bag
  • water bottle
  • pupils with hair long enough to tie back must ensure they have hair ties
  • pupils with pierced ears will be expected to provide micropore tape to cover them or take them off during school competitions

The following is a breakdown of specific sports, when they are taught and non-essential items that you feel your child may wish to use:
