Sports Premium

We are committed to improving PE and school sport for our young children. Following the success of the sports premium, the government have doubled the sports funding from September 2017.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sports in schools.


We are part of the 'Get Ahead' partnership in North Lincolnshire and work closely with them to:

  • Improve every child's experience of PE (curriculum)
  • Increase opportunities for competition against selves and others
  • Increase physical activity for all young people and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

We are very proud of how fit and healthy our children are, as they already have so many opportunities at our school to take part in daily physical activity and learn about healthy lifestyles. We aim to make our provision even better using the Sports Premium funding.


In 2017/2018 we used the Sport Premium funding to:

  • Engage all children in regular physical activity by developing our active playtimes and lunchtimes
  • Further develop the confidence and skills of our staff
  • Increase participation levels in competitive sport
  • Further develop our school sports clubs
  • Engage children in a broad range of sports and sporting experiences

Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the full report of how our money has been spent and the impact it has had in our school. 

Please see below for photos of some of the things we have used our funding on.

Go to and our class pages for more information on sporting events and activities that have taken place in school!


We also have a floorbook showing all of our wonderful sporting achievements and how the funding is being used in our school. Please ask Miss Parker if you would like to browse through our PE and Sport floorbook.

World Cup Day! 13/7/18 1
On Friday 13th July we had a huge intra-school competition with each class battling it out in 6 different football challenges to win our World Cup trophy! We used our Sport Premium money to fund this day with the help of the Get Ahead Partnership and 12 amazing Sports Leaders from Bottesford Juniors! See the PE page for more photos! 

Active Bear

Active Bear 1
We have a new bear for our Achievement assembly - Active Bear! Every day one child from each class will wear their class pedometer, we will record the number of steps completed at the end of every day and total them up at the end of a week. The most active class will be rewarded with 'Active Bear'! 

Active Playtimes

The School Council met with Miss Parker to discuss our playground and what we could do to make playtimes even more fun and even more active. The children decided they would really like to play more games and in order to do this we would need some new equipment. They created a shopping list using post-its and catalogues. Here is all of our new equipment ready to go!  

We have invested in the PE library from 'Primary Steps in PE'. Each week children from Year 1 and 2 take home a PE Library bag for the weekend; each bag contains some equipment and an activity book. The idea behind the PE Library is to get children more active at home and to encourage more physical play with their parents/siblings.
