PE and Sport Premium

Picture 1 We achieved the School Games Gold Award for 17/18

What are the key criteria?

Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics...


  • Participation - how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
  • Competition - how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
  • Workforce - how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
  • Clubs - how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant,  how we allocate the funding and the impact that this has had for the current year and for previous years.


Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. We have allocated the funds in a way which is aimed to develop staff skills and children’s passion, enthusiasm and capability for physical activity encouraging the development of more healthy, active lifestyles. In this way, we are making a sustainable impact which will last beyond this academic year and that we can build upon in the future. For example, the Active Play resource will be available to use at every lunch, break and after school. By training staff in playground leaders or MSAs to lead lunch time active play we are ensuring the impact is sustainable.



For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.


Our Year 6 cohort for 2017/18:

  • 60% (9/15) met the requirement to be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metre. 
  • 80% (12/15) met the requirement to be able to use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke).
  • 80% (12/15) can perform safe self rescue in different water based situations.


We have used some of the PE and Sports Premium to provide additional provision for swimming in the summer term 2018 for activity over and above the National Curriculum requirements. Pupils from Year 3 to Year 6 have taken their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Honours awards.  


In 2018, as has been the case in all other years, all of our pupils from Reception to Year 6 took part in swimming lessons during the summer term.


Our data for 2016/17 was 75% of our Y6 pupils (15/20) met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum.
