Sports Premium


From September 2013 each Primary School was allocated funding by the government directly to support the provision of quality PE/Sport. This funding is used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and Sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, so that they develop healthy lifestyles.

'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' (DfE, June 2013)

Hillside Junior School was allocated £14,506 for the financial period from April 2017 until March 2018.

Total money spent in 2017-2018 is £17,613 with an overspend of £3,107.

We do not spend any of the funding on swimming lessons. Year 5 pupils attend swimming lessons during the year and 74% of Year 6 pupils meet the Swimming National Curriculum requirement.

Use of Funding:

  • A specialist gymnastics teacher is working alongside our teachers to improve delivery of lessons
  • We are continuing to deliver a range of extra-curricular sporting opportunities, these are mostly funded by the school, only when we need to use an outside provider are pupils charged to attend a club
  • Targeted groups of reluctant children take part in a specific weekly programme which has improved their confidence in PE
  • Gifted and talented pupils are receiving extra training
  • Additional lunchtime provision is available to encourage pupils to take an active lunch break
  • We have employed a designated Sports Coach, who is a qualified teacher with Sport/PE as his specialism to provide a wide range of sporting activities
  • Increased networking with other schools on PE and Games
