Sports Premium

The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Plaistow Primary School


The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Plaistow Primary School.

For the academic year 2018-2019 we will receive an amount of £19,420.

How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding:

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.
Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, are that it must be used so that:

• All children benefit regardless of sporting ability
• The most able children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools
• Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
• Some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints e.g. swimming
• We make use of collaborative and partnership working.

How we will ensure sustainable improvement:

  • Children will have an increased desire to participate in PE  and sport beyond their school life.
  • Teachers will have improved subject knowledge.
