PE Funding

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

In addition to delivering the school’s PE curriculum through outstanding specialist teaching we have also considered how primary PE funding can enable a wider school offer for our children as well as impact on sustainability of provision.

Extra Provision: 

We have allocated approximately one third of our funding to join the Ashington and Coquet School Sport Partnership for the 2016-2017 academic year. This has allowed us to further enhance competitive opportunities for our pupils as well as build sustainable provision through high quality CPD with particular reference to support staff.  As part of the offer we will also be involved in the Sainsburys School Games competition, benefit from Youth Sport Trust membership and an extensive festival programme for Years 1-6. Additional activities include: Year 4 central venue leagues in netball and football to support competition in year groups where there are fewer School Games competitions.


The school also offers an extensive disability sport programme for our pupils coordinated by an England disability coach. 


The Government is providing £150 million per year, directly to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The funding is ring-fenced and can be spent only on PE and sport provision in schools. Each school receives a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for those children in Years 1-6.

Sport Premium Information 2017-18

The Primary PE and Sport Premium is awarded to every school with primary aged pupils and must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. Schools should publish the amount of premium received; a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent); what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future. Schools should also consider how their use of the premium is giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle.


We will further strengthen provision through: 

  • Youth Sport Trust Kitemark – applying Sept 17 (early indications are that it will be GOLD)
  • Implement “the power of an active school” training to whole school
  • Increase parental engagement
  • Increase range of clubs on lower site

The impact of this provision is measured against national benchmarks such as the Challenging Physical Activity initiative ( which aims to complement the National Curriculum in building children’s knowledge and skills while also significantly improving their fitness levels. Tests include challenging and improving fitness levels as benchmarked against a child’s ability to run, jump, throw and catch.

In 2017 – 2018 we will receive £20880 of funding. Below is a summary of how we will use it to benefit our pupils.


There are 5 key areas for the premium to be spent on:

1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

2. the profile of PE and sport being 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
