A Flying Start to Success

PE and Sport Premium


This money has been used and will continue to be used to:

  • develop or add to our PE, physical activity and sport that we provide;

  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years;

  • provide targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children;

  • encourage active play during break times and lunchtimes;

  • establish, extend and fund attendance of school sport clubs and activities;

  • adopt an active mile initiative;

  • raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet the requirements of the national curriculum before the end of Key Stage 2;

  • raise the profile of PE and sport across the school;

  • actively encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support the delivery of sport and physical activity;

  • embed physical activity into the school day through encouraging active travel to and from school, active break times and holding active lessons and teaching;

  • increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport; 

  • introduce a new range of sports and physical activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities;

  • partner with other schools to run sports and physical activities and clubs;

  • increase participation in competitive sport.


Swimming is a national curriculum requirement. The 3 requirements for swimming and water safety are that by the end of Key Stage 2 pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres;

  • use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke;

  • perform a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

We use the PE and sport premium to fund swimming professional development. We also use the PE and sport premium to provide additional top-up swimming lessons to pupils who have not been able to meet the national curriculum requirements .
