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 will use 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

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


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.

One of the things we have invested in is 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.
