PE and sport premium funding

PE and sport premium grant funding

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport provision they offer their pupils.

The sports premium funding is used well to enhance the teaching of physical education and has increased pupils’ participation in sporting activities.

Ofsted, 2017

Our PE and sports premium grant funding allocation

Our school receives an annual premium of approximately £17,000 which is used to directly impact on improving PE and sport provision throughout the school in relation to the following five key indicators.

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sport clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2. Every child should leave primary school able to swim
  • actively encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support the delivery of sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sport leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
  • embedding physical activity into the school day through encouraging active travel to and from school, active break times and holding active lessons and teaching
  • providing staff with professional development, mentoring, appropriate training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across your school
  • hiring qualified sports coaches and PE specialists to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities offered to pupils
  • introducing a new range of sports and physical activities (such as dance, yoga or fitness sessions) to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • partnering with other schools to run sports and physical activities and clubs
  • providing more and broadening the variety of extra-curricular activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sports organisations
  • increasing and actively encouraging pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • organising, coordinating or entering more sport competitions or tournaments within the school or across the local area, including those run by sporting organisations

Active Mile

All pupils attending Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre regularly participate in our Active Mile initiative

The Active Mile is a safe, simple and measurable health and physical activity initiative accessible to all  pupils, regardless of age or ability.

The initiative reinforced the message from the Department of Health that children should engage in regular daily physical activity habits across the week, every week all year round.

The Active Mile is an all year round initiative whereby pupils get involved by walking, jogging or running around our Active Mile track within the safety of the school grounds.
