PE and Sports


Priory PE and Sport Premium Funding

What is the PE & Sport Funding?

The Government has provided additional funding for schools, since 2013, to improve the quality of PE and sport they offer. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. This year the sum has been doubled and the Sugar Tax is also used for funding.  Priory receives £16,000 plus an additional £10 per pupil in Year 1 to Year 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Funding allocation for 2021/2022: £19,483

Impact of Spending Evidence

Impact of Spending Evidence – updated July 2021

CPD for Teachers

CPD has been offered to staff throughput the year, enabling them to use the budget to improve their confidence in delivering high quality sessions, thus enhancing the profile of PE throughout the school.

“We have been offered a number of courses this year, I have found these useful, along with the planning documents given to me by the PE lead. “ Year 5 teacher.

Resources for High Quality Sessions

Sports funding has been used this year to enhance the quality of PE session. Based on feedback by staff, resources have been ordered throughout the year to improve the quality of PE sessions. 

Enjoyable Lunchtimes Initiative

Sports funding has been used to develop and maintain resources for a wide range of activities for the children to take part in on the playground. These activities are run by Sports Leaders, resulting in a reduction in the number of minor incidents in the games that they play.

“Lunch time is now my favorite time of the day, there is so much to do!” Grace Year 6

Development of Outdoor Space

In order to increase the amount of daily physical activity the children take part in, the development of the outdoor space has been a key component in allowing Priory to do this. This year, we have used the funding to acquire Activall, these boards are superb in imporving co-ordination, competitiveness and core strength. They have been a welcomed addition to our playground.

“The Activall boards are amazing!” Lily Year 6.


CPD for teachers

Staff should feel more confident when teaching PE, as a result this will mean higher attainment and higher quality PE sessions. This will be sustained in house if teachers need to focus on a specific area, there are teachers in the school more capable of sharing good practice.

Increased participation in competitions

The purchase of the minibus increased the participation in sports competitions and other activities, prior to the covid-19 pandemic.  

Development of outdoor space

Additional resources have enabled us to continue to offer pupils the opportunity to be actively involved in DPA. Thus promoting their health and well-being.  The Golden Mile and Sports Leaders have also been imbedded throughout school to increase the amount of DPA; this is being sustained as the new sports leaders train future leaders.

Increased participation in Clubs

Time 4 Sport deliver a range of after-school sports clubs, which are available to all children from Reception to Year 6. Staff will provide clubs for games across all year groups from Spring 2022, including netball, rugby, football (team), girls football and yoga.


Swimming lessons were suspended during 2020/21, due to the covid-19 pandemic. They are scheduled to restart during spring of 2022.
