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

How will we be spending the PE & Sports Funding in 2017/18 and who will benefit?

Our Objectives:

  • To provide a wider range of PE and sports available in school.
  • To provide a range and increased participation in before and after school clubs.
  • To provide a wider range and increased access to Level 2 competitions in a variety of sports.
  • To provide a minibus to ensure participation in events and competitions across the CLT/City.
  • To establish a system for measuring the fitness of pupils, tracking improvements and targeting any key groups and areas. Â
  • Pupils who need to increase activity levels are given the chance to participate against others of a similar ability and potential
  • Greater confidence in planning and delivery of PE lessons (CPD and Scheme of Work) – All areas of the PE curriculum are at least good.
  • Increased Daily Physical Activity (DPA) for all pupils through the Golden Mile and improvements to outdoor facilities (dependent on additional funding).
Key achievements to date: 2016-17- allocation £9575
  • £660 enabled us to focus on upskilling less confident/ non swimmers ready for KS3.
  • Improved playground facilities have greatly increased the quality and range of outdoor activities delivered both within the curriculum and at playtimes. Pupils now have opportunity to become actively engaged in fun, challenging and inspiring activities which help to promote healthy active lifestyles.
  • £500 used to employ external coaches enabled us to increase the range and number of clubs offered in both KS1 and 2.
  • £1500 to affiliation to OPEN PE Network. Provided CPD for subject leader to implement a number of initiatives to help enhance the PE provision throughout school. For example: gymnastic CPD greatly enhanced the teaching and learning of gym across the school.
