PE and Sports Premium Grant 2017-18

This year (2017-18) we will receive £16,750 in funding. We will be using the Sports Premium to target the following areas:

Continuous Professional Development

This year, Mrs Lucy Palmer, will continue to lead PE, organize the festivals and take some lessons.  She will continue in her role supporting new members of staff in teaching PE and leading clubs and enrichment activities.

Sports Competitions

We will continue to use funding to allow us to enter a variety of sports competitions e.g. tag rugby, golf, gymnastics, year 3/4 football, year 5/6 football (including a girls team), kwik cricket (including a girls team) and hockey.  Where possible, we are also encouraging more children in year 2 to take part in competitions e.g. orienteering and fundamental skills. It will also go towards transport to and from festivals, to fund our affiliation to the Area Athletics Association as well as activities linked with resources from Avon Valley College.

After School Clubs

We will be supporting extra-curricular sports clubs and funding two PE clubs, one for KS1 and one for KS2, throughout the year.

Renewing Equipment

Money will also be used to replace/renew PE and playground equipment, e.g. new tag rugby kit to replace old for new and soft balls, skipping ropes and French skipping for break times.

Last year, under different leadership, Mrs Lucy Palmer was employed to provide coaching and team teach with our four members of staff, for one hour a week. She planned lessons, modelled games and specific skills/techniques. She also led PE across the school and organized all the festivals that the children took part in. 


This has ensured that all members of staff can successfully plan and deliver the PE curriculum.  This includes a wide range of invasion games as well as athletics, swimming and gymnastics.
