PE and Sport Premium


PE funding and impact 2018/2019


The government has provided additional funding for the academic years 2018 to 2019, to improve provision of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and is ring-fenced which means it can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


The premium must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of primary-aged pupils in the academic year to give them the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.


We have had the freedom to choose how to spend this additional funding on improving the provision of PE and sport at our school. Great Milton C of E Primary School understands the importance of physical activity and has put several measures in place over the last four years to provide good quality PE teaching, resourcing the subject and also promoting outdoor education in our grounds and wider community.



Has the grant been spent on external coaches?


When are the coaches being deployed e.g. within the curriculum, during breaks and lunch times, or after school


What is the quality of the coaching provided e.g. satisfactory, good, outstanding?



We use funding to employ a specialist coach who delivers 2 days of curriculum P.E. to all year groups.


Our coach also mentors and trains our staff to support their own P.E teaching.


He offers an after school multi-sport club and organises regular matches against other local schools.


The quality of the coaching is good and lesson plans are regularly shared and teaching monitored


We also employ a tennis coach on a Friday afternoon to deliver sessions for all pupils throughout the year.



Has your school entered more competitions this year?


Provide examples of the range of competitions entered this year



Our sports coach has organised tournaments and matches against other local schools. We have also competed in a tournament organised by The Oxford Academy.


We competed at Area Sports and attended the Toplink P.E. festival at Wheatley Park School.

We continually purchase new equipment for EYFS, KS1 and KS2


The funding has enabled our Key Stage 2 pupils to access swimming lessons during the school year.
