Sports Premium


The DfE funding is paid per academic year rather than financial year.

The total income for the financial year 2016/17 is £9,172, consisting of a lump sum of £8,000 plus £5 per pupil (Y1-Y6).


Total money spent is £13,330 with an overspend of £4,158.

We spent the money on the following:

  • 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
  • Targeted groups of 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.
