Sport Premium Funding

Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. The new ‘ring-fenced’ funding – only to be spent on PE and sport – will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs. The aim is to improve the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching for school sport and teacher training for Physical Education and Physical Literacy or to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.

Here at St Andrew’s we have received £5100, which in accordance with the guidance we will be channelling directly into developing the provision of Sport and PE throughout the school. We have developed a plan that is based around the academic year September 13 to July 14.

We have completed an initial audit around Physical Education, Physical Activity, Extra-Curricular School Sport and Competition. Below is a breakdown of how the funding will be spent with how we will be measuring its impact on our children:

  1. £600 has been spent on a gymnastics specialist to develop teaching and subject knowledge in gymnastics. The specialist worked alongside teachers in weekly lessons in every class, to help them improve their own skills and the delivery of lessons. This support went across the whole school ensuring that the skills of teachers and quality of gym lessons has significantly developed.
  2. £750 was used for a School Support Package to help develop a sustainable, high quality PE provision in line with OFSTED requirements. As part of this support we took part in a Whole School Inset day in Dance.
  3. £1000 was spent on releasing the PE Subject Leader from teaching duties throughout the year in order to develop a wider network of competitive sports opportunities. This included courses on assessment, network meetings and CPD in athletics.
  4. £1030 has been used to purchase equipment to develop the delivery of PE and sport.

  1.  £255 has been assigned to repair the long jump pit and take off board.
  2. £400 has been allocated for the purchase of an iPad to photograph and record work in PE. It will assist teachers when making judgements in assessment as well as pupils’ self-evaluation who can watch back their performance and improve it.
  3. £815 is being spent on a whole school scheme of work for PE - ‘Val Sabin’.

This includes Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics and Games.

  1. £250 has been allocated for a training session for all teaching staff on the delivery of the new PE scheme.


The impact of this funding will be measured through:

  • pupil perception questionnaires and pupil voice opportunities measuring the interest of children in different areas of the PE curriculum;
  • direct feedback by teachers on the quality of support offered by the specialist coaches for individual school sports;
  • direct feedback from teachers on the quality of support offered by specialists   in          Physical Education teaching and development.
    • evaluation of the teaching of Physical Education lessons;
    • evaluation of the quality of provision of extra-curricular clubs in relation to physical activity and school sport;
    • feedback from the specialist teachers to the Head Teacher on the level of engagement by teachers;
    • the increase in the number of children engaging in inter school sporting activities;
    • the increase in quality of provision and opportunities within the curriculum to take part in ‘active learning’ and ‘outdoor learning’;
    • increase in the attainment and progress of children in relation to fundamental movement skills, physical fluency and key competencies across all activity areas delivered in curriculum Physical Education;

the number of children attending a club related to physical activity, the development of physical literacy and physical fluency or sports club either in school or outside of school in the local community
