In 2013, the government introduced additional funding for primary schools for the provision of PE and sport activities.
Each academic year we receive this funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and
sport that we offer to pupils – to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
We must use the premium to:
- Develop or add to the PE and Sport activities that we already offer
- Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
So far, we have benefited from the following funding:
- 2016/17 – £9785.00
- 2015/16 – £9795.00
- 2014/15 – £9795.00
- 2013/14 – £9810.00

The continuation of the local sport network and netball league membership has been purchased. We bought new hockey equipment. The continued training of our staff, to improve their knowledge of how to deliver PE and sport activities to enable our pupils to develop their skills and knowledge.
This money has also allowed us to regularly release staff in order to accompany children to a wider variety of competitive events, allowing greater links to be developed between the curriculum and after school clubs/events.
We continued to buy into the local sport network. We purchased more resources to aid both the teaching and encourage greater uptake of sport amongst our pupils. Our membership with the Ashford Netball Youth League was renewed. We took part in an Athletics tournament and contributed towards a tennis coach. Further training and coaching sessions were provided to our staff.
We bought into a local sport network, ‘The School Games Support Package’, which enabled us entry into different sport competitions.
We purchased 2 pairs of netball posts and joined the Ashford Netball Youth League. We replaced our agility gym mats along with a new trolley to store them appropriately. A number of our staff received training on how to teach sport more effectively; this practice was then shared with other members of the team. Tim Pendergast spent the day with us; he gave an inspiring talk to our pupils and worked with our teachers.
