Sports Funding

Sports Funding


Sports funding is being provided by government in recent years to all primary schools to spend specifically on improving the quality of sport and P.E for all their pupils. Funding is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as recorded in the annual schools census in January.


Aims of the Action Plan


1. To develop the competence, creativity, performance and healthy lifestyle of all the children in our school.

2. To ensure that all staff have high quality professional competence throughout all areas of the PE curriculum.

3. To offer a broad curriculum that inspires the children to participate in a wide range of physical activities.

4. To develop sustainable and effective school to school support through the local cluster of primary schools.

5. To give the children the confidence to compete against other schools.

6. To create an appropriate and challenging environment that will enable every child to fulfil their potential.

7. To make links with local sports clubs and the community to increase participation outside school.

8. To raise the profile of PE throughout the school.


Review of 2015/2016


The Priors School received funding of £8,315 for the academic year 2015/16.


The vast majority of our funding is used to employ specialist sports coaches, Onside Coaching. They provide high-quality PE sessions for all children from Reception up to Year 6 on a weekly basis. Observations of the sessions, and the clear enjoyment that the children have during the lessons, show the impact that it has on the children's attitudes to sport.


Plan for 2016/2017


We will continue to employ Onside Coaches this year to deliver one PE session per week.


We will use some of the Sports Premium to supplement the costs of after school sports clubs and access to competitions.


We will continue to raise the profile of PE through inter and intra school competitions.




We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium by:

  • Lesson observations
  • School Council led questionnaires
  • Monitoring of access to after school sports clubs
  • Monitoring of access to competitions, both inter and intra school
