Sports Premium Grant


The Government has committed to giving all schools an annual sum of money to allow them to develop sports provision and  help increase pupil participation in sporting activity. The national vision is for “All pupils leaving primary school [to be] physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”

At Christ Church we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our funding enables us to continue to extend our provision for all our pupils and develop confidence and competence in staff. 

The money currently equates to £16,000 per school per year plus an additional £10 per child in Year 1 to Year 6. In the academic year 2019/20, we will receive £18,450. 

The sports premium funding we receive will support us to continue in our drive to achieve our vision in PE and Sport.

Impact of Sport Premium Spending 

We evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.


Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Currently 80% of our pupils attend extra curricular sporting sessions. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. From our latest assessment we have 96% of our pupils who are at or above the expected level for PE. 87.5 % of our children are on track to meet the early learning goal for Physical Development.  The impact of sports premium spending is closely monitored by the Headteacher, the Physical team in school and also a member of the governing body.
