PE and Sport Premium

Primary School's Sport Funding (PE Premium)


At Spinney Hill Primary School, 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 Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing a specialist PE staff to provide varied and high quality PE sessions within the curriculum for the pupils whilst simultaneously providing staff development. PE staff work alongside teachers to improve their confidence and skills in teaching PE.


We will also use the funds to develop after school activities to provide a varied menu of sport opportunities and enable the school to participate in more competitive sports competitions.


What is the Sports Premium?


The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum until 2016 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding.


Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years.


At Spinney Hill Primary School this is approximately £11, 000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


How is Spinney Hill Primary School making the most of this funding?


We have appointed 2 full time specialist PE staff who have timetables that enable them to carry out high quality PE lessons throughout the day  alongside teachers,  provide after school clubs and organise and facilitate competitions.


To maximising the opportunity they

1. Lead high quality PE sessions in curriculum time, observed by the class teacher to further develop their teaching skills in PE.

2. Plan varied after school and lunchtime clubs to develop the skills of known clubs and also introduce the children to new sports.

3. Organise and lead teams to take part in sports competitions.

4. Plan specific sports days and events to encourage healthy lifestyles

5. Evaluate and monitor the provision and use this to develop the type of provision we offer to meet as many children’s interests as possible


How at Spinney Hill Primary School is our Sports Premium enhanced?


At Spinney Hill Primary School we are part of two essential networks which provide additional CPD, resources, events and leadership tools to develop the impact of our Sports Premium.


Through Sport Premium Funding we have joined the Crown Hills School Sport Partnership. This provides opportunity for staff development facilitates competition, access to funding streams, specialist secondary school teaching support and supports the school in promoting high quality PE lessons, links across the curriculum and strategies to develop healthy lifestyles.


We are part of Leicester City School Sport & Physical Activity Network which is made up of 111 schools across the City, split into East and West Leicester.

What is the impact of the funding?


Each year the Crown Hills Partnership asks the school to audit provision. From this priorities for the year are set.

Current focus of evaluation has been centred on children evaluating learning within lessons.


Children’s opinions about sport have been sought and particularly how our limited grounds could be enhanced.

Seeking the children’s responses and engaging them in this process has resulted in the school being given funding from Sport England to initially address play surfaces in school.


We are presently evaluating the impact by looking at what clubs have taken place and how many children have been involved. Approximately 180 children a week are participating in after school activity.  Records have been kept of all children participating across the school.


As a result of the school joining Schools FA for both boys and girls, links have been made for children to join local clubs and participate further.


There is at least one competition with other schools each week.


There is now an increase in lunchtime sport which we wish to develop further.


Through participation we are able to develop a young leader’s programme.


The school has begun to work with the partnership to implement an evaluative online tool called Me and My Pupil.
