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:

  • To provide high quality teaching of Physical Education for all children
  • To further development the PE curriculum.
  • To further increase attendance at school competitions (including hire of a mini-bus for some events)
  • To support and co-ordinate extra curricular activities
  • Employment of a sports coach and a dance teacher to enhance the extra-curricular provision.
  • To provide an increased range of 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.

We were awarded our Schools Games Platinum Certificate in 2019, following many years of Gold awards.
