Primary Sports Funding

Primary Sport Funding ‘The effective use of additional sports funding is also enhancing pupils’ interest in sport in the school and in competition with others, as well as building knowledge of working in teams.’  OFSTED Nov. 2014  As you may be aware, part of the government’s plan to keep the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics alive is to fund school sport. Each primary school in the UK is being given a grant to improve facilities, opportunities, participation and the quality of physical education offered to children.  To see a detailed breakdown of how we have used our grant money in previous years, please see the Primary PE Funding Statement pages below.

Below are our plans for the spending of the PE Sports Funding money in 2018/19.

Please note that these plans are being based upon what we received last year as we have been promised to be allocated the same amount of money as last year. Last year we received £19,429 this academic year, this was considerably higher than previous years because schools had been given the funds from the Sugar Tax. We have received £11,334 (7/12 of the allocation) in October 2018 and will receive the remaining 5/12 of the funding in May 2019 (£8,095).

Swimming Data:

For the 2018/19 academic year, the DfE has set out a new requirement for schools to publish details of how many pupils within their year 6 cohort can do each of the following:

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

The below data shows the results of these three criteria from our current Year 6 cohort. 


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety:


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

Part of the budget will be allocated in this way.
