Sports Premium Grant


The government has been providing additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools since 2013. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated annually. Sports Premium funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of Funding

How will we be using our funding?



 89% of children achieved 5 metres.

 72% of children achieved 10 metres.

 58% of children achieved 25 metres.

 9 Children achieved the N.C Water skills award. (Jump into water of a minimum depth of 2m; Tread water for 30 seconds; swim 25m; submerge completely in water of a minimum depth of 1m to retrieve an object from the floor of the pool.)


66% of children progressed at least one level.

7 children who were non swimmers progressed two levels to achieve 10 metres.

The children visit Fullwell Swimming baths once a week for one term, they participate in a half hour lesson. The children start their lessons during Year 5, any children who did not achieve 25 metres will get extra lessons during Year 6 which will be funded by using part of the school’s sports premium.

What outcomes can we expect from the increased funding?
