PE and Sport Premium
The Government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Funding is based on figures reported on in the 2013 school census.
PE & Sport Premium funding received for the current academic year- £16,651.00
We have recently bought into the PE scheme Real PE, Jasmine.
This new scheme is accessible to all classes across the age ranges and abilities.
Jasmine has six categories that pupils will cover throughout the year: Physical, Social, Personal, Health and Fitness, Cognitive and Creative. Activities are specially designed to encompass each of these categories.
Pupils in informal curriculum will access PE through a story themed approached working on basic skills.
Semi-Formal pupils will develop these skills, build on them and then work on their 'personal best scores'.
Formal pupils will work on their personal best scores and team games.
Purpose of funding:
The money is ring-fenced which means that schools have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
- Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport
- Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/Sport
- Participating in sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/Sport
- Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs
Ofsted holds all schools accountable for how they spend the funding and the impact it has on the school. This forms part of the overall Ofsted report.

They had training and help from some of the players from Leeds Knights Hockey Team and a professional figure skater. They used penguins for stability but then some gained enough confidence to skate off on their own and even managed to do some jumps and turns!
Pupils from the Formal TLG, joined trainee PE teachers at Leeds Beckett for a day of Den Building, Climbing Wall, Nightline and Team Building activities. They had to imagine they were on Mount Everest, build a shelter and camp in it. They then had to build a path using limited resources. There was a climbing wall where everyone had a go and some reached the summit! The Nightline then finished the day where they had to trust their partner to guide them around the course, through and over tress and tree stumps.
