Sports Premium Funding 2016 / 2017

From 2013 the government has been providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Spellbrook. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and, through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

This year we will be using our sports premium funding of £8,545 to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways:

Belonging to the Birchwood Sports Partnership, which includes:

  • Bringing in outside, specialist PE providers to develop the skills of both children and staff
  • Competing in inter-school competition
  • Promoting children’s PE experiences from outside of school
  • Establishing links with local clubs
  • Providing Gifted &Talented opportunities in PE
  • Staff training


Developing the role of our Sports Coordinator, which includes:

  • Organising our own inter-school events. E.g. Cross-country
  • Developing house teams for PE
  • Developing sports leaders. Children are taught how to develop and deliver PE activities to other children
  • Developing intra-school competition
  • Developing PE in the Early Years
  • Organising swimming lessons for Reception, Y1, Y3and Y5 children and top up lessons for children in Y5 and Y6
  •  Overseeing P.E. budget


Providing “Top Up Swimming” for Y5 and Y6


Having sports provision at lunchtime from our External Sports Provider


Minibus hire to transport our children to sporting events and swimming




Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all whilst ensuring our children are taught about the importance of good sportsmanship.

Impact of Sports Premium 2016– 2017

  • We achieved a Silver Award for Schools Games Mark in summer 2016 and are aiming for Gold next time.
  • The majority of children in KS2 took part in at least one inter school competition.
  • Our teams competing in inter school competitions performed well this year; we were placed in several events and were commended on several occasions for our pupils ’excellent sportsmanship.
  • The majority of pupils’ attainment in PE is in line with age related expectations or better.
  • Our four sports captains organised more intra school events this year for the whole school.
  • We are starting to use pupil voice interviews to consider our pupils’ interest in and attitudes towards sport.
  • There has been an increase in child participation and enjoyment in a wide range of sporting activities covered within the curriculum and in our after school provision.
  • Less active children and children who need support with their behaviour are encouraged to have a positive attitude toward sport and physical activity through our lunchtime sports club provided by external providers.

Future development for 2017-2018

The school is committed to maintaining the delivery of PE and sport for the year ahead. We will continue to involve our pupils in participation in a wide range of sports through the Birchwood Sports Partnership; provide lunchtime sports provision and after school clubs; ensure pupils have the opportunity to swim regularly and for pupils to organise intra team competitions. In the summer term 2017 we are planning to introduce Bikeability for Y5 and Y6 children for the first time.
