PE Sports Premium 2017/18 & Swimming Data

Vision:  We endeavour to support and promote excellence through PE whilst advocating healthy lifestyles and the opportunity for ALL children to engage in regular competitive sport and physical activity, therefore developing competency in a broad range of PE.

What is the PE Sports Premium?

The government is currently providing additional monies by the way of sports premium, to each primary school every academic year to provide substantial sport and PE funding.   The premium enables schools to establish the foundations for a sustainable strategy for a lasting physical activity legacy, by improving provision in school of school sport/PE and introducing health focused physical activity. 


The PE Sports premium is jointly funded by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and is to be used in schools on increasing and improving physical education and sport for all pupils.  In the 2016 budget, to help improve the health of future generations, the then chancellor George Osbourne announced the doubling of the physical education and school sport premium from £160 million per annum to £320 million per annum until 2020.  Further guidance on how the premium should/should not be spent, as well as key indicators on its proposed impact on PE and school sport, can be found by clicking the link below.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.   Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil, and schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.  With this in mind, our allocation for the academic year 2017/2018 is:

Swimming Data 2017/18


As of October 2017, schools have the responsibility of publishing swimming data. This data should express how the children have met the National Curriculum expectations in KS2. By the end of Year 6 children should be able to: swim 25m, use a variety of different strokes (breast stroke, back stroke, front crawl) and be able to perform a safe self-rescue.
