Primary PE and Sport Premium 2017/18

In 2017/18, we received £16,560 to continue develop PE and Sport in our school.

We are continuing with the improvements made in previous years by:

  • Continuing with our membership of South Ribble School Sport Partnership (SRSSP) in order to work alongside specialist coaches and receive further support in the development of PE and Sport in our school, building upon skills learnt last year e.g. orienteering, netball, dance, tennis and hockey. We introduced yoga for the first time this year £4625,
  • Purchasing PE equipment £237
  • Subsidising clubs that incur a cost £1258
  • Continue the provision of extra-curricular sports and competitions
  • Continue in the participation of inter-school competitions
  • Funding transport to and from competitions and events £170
  • Working towards achieving the School Games Gold Award
  • Participating and building relationships with outside sports clubs to promote greater pupil participation in sports away from school
  • Staffing extra curriculuar sporting events £953
  • Continuing Professional Development of staff £70

We intend to provide the following over the next few months:

  • KS1  and Foundation Stage swimming lessons £810
  • Outdoor and Adventure day for whole school introducing new activities £1800
  • Healthy Living workshops £272
  • Purchasing playground equipment to increase physical activity 

We are also investigating ways to incorporate an extra 30 minutes of physical activity each day for all children.

Next academic year we plan to invest in a larger project in order to increase the uptake of physical activities and any remaining money will be carried forward to cover these costs. 

Percentage of pupils met National Curriculum requirements for swimming i.e. 25 metres for end of 2017-18 academic year: 89% (8 out of 9).
