Sport Premium

Update September 2016

The Sport Premium is being used to provide pupils with additional opportunities and high quality teaching and learning experiences. The action plan is in place to give an enhanced opportunity to improve life chances of pupils through provision in Physical Education, School Sport and Healthy Active Lifestyles. As a school we are very pleased to share some of the ways we have used the funding to enhance our provision in the Year 2015 -16.

The aim of the Sport Premium is to target 3 areas to ensure pupils have opportunities in curriculum PE, School Sport and Active Healthy Lifestyles.



  • High quality first teaching in PE continues to be the expectation of all teachers. CPD opportunities are important to develop personal practice.
  • Use of EASE sport partnership coach to work with staff to develop their knowledge of teaching games. Year 5 Autumn Term, Year 4 Spring Term and Year 3 Summer term. £3000
  • Tennis lessons provided by Bethersden Tennis Club £350


School Sport

  • We have continued to use some of our funding to subsidise an enhanced swimming programme with all KS2 pupils. This has been very popular with pupils and parents and has certainly enhanced our provision. Pupils have longer courses, additional lessons and more qualified teachers. We are now able to start collecting data to show how many pupils can now meet the end of KS requirements. Year 6 in Autumn term, Year 3, in the Spring and Year 4 in the Summer. £4000
  • Competition is another way to encourage pupils to be healthy and active and to show pride in their own performance. We have entered many competitions this year and have had regular updates in assembly and the school newsletter each month. Eg Cross Country, Sportshall Athletics, Infant Agility, Handball £300


Healthy Active Lifestyles

  • Pedal Free training provided by Cycle Circle -Extended to all of KS1 pupils. £1000
  • After school club run by EASE providing opportunities for new sports.
  • ALT Gymnastics club run in school.
  • Support of the Walk to School initiative £500
