Vision statement for Primary PE and Sports Premium

All pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in sport.


To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and Sport at school including:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and healthy lifestyles
  • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school
  • increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

Our PE premium spend is detailed in the document at the bottom of this page. The plan has been carefully considered with an over-arching objective of increasing participation in PE & sport, but at the same time defining legacy planning and how most of these initiatives may be continued even if/when the PE premium funding is removed. We employ coaches to teach children sport-specific skills but they are always uses along side a member of staff so that they also act as CPD for teachers.
