Sports Premium funding 2018-19


‘Evaluating the school’s use of the new primary school sport funding.’


The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of P.E. and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against this vision that will live on well beyond the Primary P.E. and Sport Premium funding.


It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.

2. The profile of P.E. and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

5. Increased participation in competitive sport.


In terms of spending the money, the government encourage the premium to be used for:


  • Adding to or developing the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • Make improvements now that will benefit the pupils joining the school in future years.



  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage pupils to take up a sport
