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.

New sports coaching expertise has been sourced in sports including yoga, skipping and wheel chair basketball. We continued to use Action Ants across the school throughout the year. They provide fun sports provision, including whole school mini-Olympics, Jedi light sabre fencing club, archery, fencing and transition sessions for pre-school and Reception children. The whole school took part in ten hours of swimming lessons. The Yr4/5/6’s attended an outdoor education residential at Hawes End Centre, where they participated in activities such as canoeing, hill walking, problem solving and ghyll scrambling. The Y6’s also attended an outdoor activity day at Patterdale Hall with the other cluster schools, which involved climbing and ghyll scrambling. They also went to Energi Trampoline Park as there end of term trip. We had a new Fab Fitness club for KS2 pupils in Spring term 2019.
