PE & Sports Premium

The PE and Sport Premium provide ring-fenced money to primary schools to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department of Health and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Purpose of fundingimage3

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.

Heronsgate PE and Sports Premium 2017-18
We were allocated £20,633 in the academic year 2017-18.
This was spent on a specialist PE teacher who did team-teaching and coaching of PE with class teachers across the school (£18,000).
The impact of this was:
  • Teachers are more confident in delivering low-threshold and high-ceiling PE lessons that engage and include all children
  • Teachers are more skilled in managing pace, space and activities during PE lessons
  • Teachers are able to plan effective lessons from PE scheme of work
  • Children are improving in their PE skills across the whole school

Our estimated allocation for this academic year will be £23,938.

We have carried forward £14,967 from the previous academic year. We plan to spend this on improving PE facilities at our Thamesmead campus.
