Sports’ Premium Report April 2014-2015
Sports Funding


The Federation of Mary Howard and St Andrew’s CE (C) Primary Schools appreciates the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.

The organisation of the school’s curriculum is committed to ensuring that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers. The Sport Premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical skills. In house staff training has provided teachers opportunities for them to keep abreast of new initiatives and gain knowledge and confidence.

We have two  full summer sports days covering many areas from the PE curriculum. Teachers and coaches provide a wide range of after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports.


What is the Sports Premium?

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The Government are spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education,

Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school receives £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each - here at The Federation of Mary Howard and St Andrew’s CE (C) Primary Schools this means £16,500 (£8,000 per school plus £5 per pupil) a year.


After careful consideration by the Governing Body it was decided that the money is to be used as outlined below:–

  • £6,000 – to support the costs for the continued employment of a specialist PE teacher to ensure the continuation of the high quality PE provision as well as the wide range of sporting clubs and teams across both schools
  • £6,000 for the ongoing professional development of staff to receive individual coaching and mentoring to develop the individual skills of pupils in all aspects of PE
  • £1000 – New equipment
  • £3,500 – for the provision of specialist extra curriculum classes in a wide range of sporting activities

How was it spent?

  • employing a specialist PE unqualified teacher to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Increasing the number of inter–school sports competitions with local schools
  • Bikeability support for Y4/5/6 pupils
  • Supporting pupils in attending the Outdoor Education Centre each year so that they have four opportunities to attend and develop skills (from Years 3 to 6)

What impact does the sports premium funding have?

The impact on pupils of the additional PE and Sport funding is measured at the end of each academic year:

  • Each year group has two hours of specialist PE coaching throughout KS1 and 2.
  • Pupils increase their physical and emotional well being by attending Outdoor Education Centres for up to one week, four times during their time in KS2.  During this time take up across both schools is over 95%.
