Sports Premium

Our PE Funding means exceptional improvement in the sports results, quality of resources and increase opportunities for competitive sport.

Our PE Policy can be downloaded below:


The PE and Sports Allocation is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. This funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in school.

We plan to use Sports Premium to fund the following

  • Attend school competitions (including hire of a mini-bus for some events)
  • PE development and support for all children.
  • Employ a sports coach and a dance teacher.
  • Equipment for delivery of the curriculum and extra curricular activities.
  • To buy into the Abingdon and Vale Partnership

All children in key stage 2 receive 2 hours quality PE per week, children in key stage 1 receive an average of 1.5 hours. This can go up by an additional 2 hours per week with extra curricular activities. 70% of children in years 4-6 participate in an extra curricular sporting activity with 30% taking part in two or more clubs.
