PE and Sport Premium



Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and increase participation in PE and Sport. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school.  

At Alwoodley Primary School the PE team, which is led by Miss J Hill and Mrs K Wighton, have the responsibility for developing PE and Sport and deciding upon the effective use of Sport Premium Funding.  Our school already has an excellent reputation for Sport and P.E. and we are proud of all of our sporting achievements. We welcome the additional funding, which will further enhance our provision and provide additional opportunities for increased participation.



The following table shows how Alwoodley Primary School intends to spend the 2016/2017 Sports Premium money (£9845)

Impact Statement 2016 (based on use of 2015-2016 Sport Premium Funding)


  • Pupil participation in sporting activity remains high as a result of our membership to active schools – data has been collected to reflect this.
  • There has been another increase on previous year in the schools participation in sporting competitions and festivals in school and beyond. For example, we are delighted that we have a World Champion at Alwoodley Primary School. A year 6 pupil, returned from Portugal with a gold medal after competing in the Under 11 Kumite (the fighting section of karate) championship.  Her interest in the sport began with her participation in the school club.
  • Active Schools’ membership has had a significant impact on improved sports provision at Alwoodley Primary School. It also provides access to high quality facilities, equipment and professional expertise.  It will continue to be a priority for funding. Data upon increased participation is available.
  • The school participated in more sporting events as a result of additional funding for coaches and transport.
  • Teacher’s professional development, skills and confidence in coordinating PE provision has improved as a result of specific training.
  • The school achieved the Gold ‘School Games Award’ as part of this initiative.
  • The payment of coaches to organise and teach after school sports has ensured that there is a wide range of activities on offer for children and that participation levels remain high. This forms a small part of our sporting provision as staff also provide sports clubs and support children at events such as netball tournaments, football tournaments, cricket etc.
  • Increased activity in other curriculum areas as a result of Maths of the Day subscription and training.  This is beginning to come across in other subject areas as a result of staff training led by subject leader.
  • Increased levels of activity at playtimes as a result of the investment in playground leaders. All lunch time supervisors were invited to attend training about how to promote active playtimes led by subject leader. Playground leader staff have targeted specific pupils (for example PP) to get involved in active playtimes.
  • Y3/4 participating in 1K a day (Spring and Summer terms) and recording their own personal best times. This has proved very motivational for those children who do not want to participate in competition against others.
  • Evidence of high levels of participation is available through club registers.
