PE / Sports Premium Funding



The Government is providing additional sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Christ Church Primary School.

The funding provided equates to an annual lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional £10 per child for those in Year 1 to Year 6.

In accordance with the DFE conditions of grant, (click here for dfe conditions of grant) at Christ Church we use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Specifically we use this funding to support, challenge and inspire pupils and staff against the following key indicators as recommended by the DfE: (March 2021)

Key indicator 1; Increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity

Key indicator 2; Raise the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.

Key indictor 3; Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

Key indicator 4; Offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all pupils.

Key indicator 5; Increase participation in competitive sport
