Sports Funding

PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools

What is Sports Premium?


This extra funding is allocated directly to primary headteachers and is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of P.E. and sport in schools.


Eligible schools

Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils (aged 5 to 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January . Funding is  allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism.


For the academic year 2018-19 we expect to receive in the region of £17,600, again calculated from a lump sum plus an additional £10 per pupil over the age of 5.


For the academic year 2017 -18, funding was increased and we received £17,520. This was calculated from a lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional £10 per pupil over the age of 5.


For the academic year 2016-2017 allocated funding was £8,780. This comprised a lump sum of £8000 plus £8 per pupil over the age of 5.



Purpose & Use of Funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. 


Please see spending breakdown below for specific cost details.


Participation in school PE has improved concentration in lessons, encouraged team work and has enabled children to participate in teams and represent the school e.g. athletics. Furthermore, we conduct Impact Surveys with the children to assess their involvement, enjoyment and feedback from their sessions. 


An important part of our PE delivery is as a fully participating member of the Newark and District School Sports Association. As a smaller school the sports funding is vital to enable us to subsidise transport to inter school competitions and allow our children to enjoy  competition and represent the school. This is across all sports from Boccia to pop lacrosse.
