Sports premium funding

Evidencing the Impact of Primary PE and Sports Premium

Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.

The government is providing funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Once again, we subscribed to the Eden Valley Sports Partnership (EVSP) at a cost of £3000. This money gained us access to a structured calendar of interschool sporting virtual events, plus regular in-school timetabled coach visits over half-termly blocks in sports we requested and targeted. In 2022-23, these included dance, tennis and balance bikes. Pupils in KS2 had bike ability training and workshops about bike maintenance. We continued to use Action Ants across the school throughout the year, covering a range of sports. They provide fun sports provision, including whole school mini-Olympics, dodgeball, lacrosse, archery and fencing. Lots of activities and workshops, including wheelchair basketball, horse riding and fencing. The children have taken part in events such as tag rugby, kwik cricket, football and netball tournaments.
