Our staff and children are benefitting greatly from the Sport Premium funding, which is having a positive impact on our pupils’ physical wellbeing, as well as broadening all of our horizons with regard to sporting experiences. Below is an outline of our use of the Sport Premium Funding to date and its impact on our school and pupils;


  • We have been able to offer a wider variety of sports clubs. Most recently we offered 8 different sports clubs for the children to choose from. Some of which were run by specialist sports coaches.
  • As a result of this there has been an increased number of children attending sports clubs (from 89 children to 137)
  • 20% of the children now attending sports clubs are children who come from disadvantaged backgrounds (an increase from 14% in 2014)
  • Our Sports Coaching company has had a significant impact on the quality of provision and the variety of sports taught by our staff.
  • Staff have been able to benefit from CPD sessions, bringing in more ‘Good’ quality teaching.


6 children who cause concern with their behaviour attend the sports clubs and this has impacted significantly on the number of incidents recorded on Behaviour Watch at the same time last year:

Autumn 2014/15 Autumn 2015/16 Difference
Child A 21 incidents 17 incidents -4
Child B 6 incidents 1 incidents -5
Child C 78 incidents 62 incidents -16
Child D 29 incidents 20 incidents -9
Child E 12 incidents 6 incidents -6


How will we be spending our Sports Funding?

At Park Academy we understand the importance of physical activity and sport. We believe that being active, working as a team and trying new sports is vital to the overall wellbeing of our pupils. With this in mind we propose to spend this additional Sports Premium funding in the following ways:

· Specialist sports coaching throughout the whole school, including reception

· Purchasing new sports equipment

· Developing the use of positive play at break and lunchtimes, including staff training, new equipment and creating the role of play leaders

· Staff training, particularly for our PE Leader

· Taking part in inter-schools sports competitions


How will we ensure these improvements are sustainable?

Over the past 2 years we have invested some of the Sports Premium funding into the development of our staff, both teachers and teaching assistants. We believe this is a very important way of sustaining the improvement. Staff now feel more knowledgable and skilled to teach PE more effectively, both as part of the curriculum and after-school provision.

In addition to this, we feel it is important to access professional training for our PE leader to ensure that they are fully effective in their role.

What is the Sports Premium

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.  This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will 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
  • running 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
