Click on the links to read more.



The Sports Premium was introduced to fund improvements to the provision of

PE and sport,for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage them to develop

healthy lifestyles. It is allocated to schools to work with all pupils.

The government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve provision of

physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture,

Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and must only be spent on provision of

PE and sport in schools.


Schools are free to determine how best to use the funding to improve their

PE and sports provision, to help increase participation and allow children to

develop and reach the performance levels that they are capable of.

At All Saints Primary school we use our PE and Sport Premium

allocation on the following:

  1. Employ a sports teacher to work alongside teachers to deliver the

     PE curriculum, in order to  strengthen teaching and learning in this subject across the school.


  2. Continue to strive to increase pupil participation in the sports and physical activities.

  3. Increase pupil participation in inter-school sports competitions
by supplying after school coaching and                 transport to matches.

  4. Continue to provide a wide range of before and after school activities/clubs for pupils from year 1 to year 6.

  5. Continue to provide swimming lessons for all year 4 children. Lessons take place weekly for the

     academic year. Transport is provided during the winter months.


  6. Gymnastic lessons weekly, provided by a gymnastics teacher, for Reception to year 2 and

     a before school gymnastics club.
