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 and a lump sum.


At Alwoodley Primary School the PE Leader, Mr Moorhouse, has 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 document at the bottom of this page (Evidencing Impact of Sports Premium Funding) shows how Alwoodley Primary School intends to spend the 2018/2019 Sports Premium money (£16,500)


Sustainability Statement

It is important to us at Alwoodley Primary School that our Sports Premium funding is spent in a sustainable way which actively promotes sport and physical activity, encourages children to participate, increases pupil engagement and has a positive impact on pupil's physical fitness, healthy lifestyles, skills and behaviour.

We do this by:

  • Investing in our staff CPD through coaching provided by specialist sports coaches and specialist P.E. teachers;
  • Using the expertise we have within our own staff to support, coach and train other members of staff;
  • Our model for 2018/19 has been to invest in the CPD for KS1 (which was successful last academic year) and Lower KS2 teachers so that all teachers are confident when delivering PE sessions.
  • Using the funding to make it possible for our children to participate in sports competitions and tournaments during and outside of school time;
  • Supporting the provision of sports after school clubs;
  • Monitoring the impact to inform future spending;
  • Purchasing sports equipment.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety 2018


What percentage of our current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of our current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)?


What percentage of our current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have we used it in this way?



Impact Statement 2018

(based on use of 2017-2018 Sport Premium Funding)


•   Pupil participation in sporting activity remains high as a result of our

    membership to Active Schools. All classes receive a minimum of 2 hours PE

    per week and an increased number of pupils participated in extra-curricular          activity in the 2017 - 2018 academic year.


•   There has been another increase on previous year in the schools participation

    in sporting competitions and festivals in school and beyond. Some of these            competitions include football, netball, tennis, cricket, dance, skipping,                    athletics, hockey, rounders, dodgeball and cycling.


•   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.


•   For the third consecutive year, 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 a variety of      sports competitions.


•   Continued activity in other curriculum areas as a result of Maths of the Day

    subscription and training; Alwoodley adopt a whole school active ethos.


•   We support partners from beyond our own school setting with PE and sport

    initiatives. For example a group of School Direct students were trained in PE

    at our setting and they received additional training around how to plan

    active lessons with our subject leader.


•   Increased levels of activity at playtimes as a result of the investment in

    playground leaders. Playground leader staff have targeted specific pupils

    (for example PP) to get involved in active playtimes.


•   Links have been made with the local high school and Leeds Beckett University

    to promote even more activity at playtimes with their playground leaders.


•   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 and meets one of      the requirements of personal challenge as part of the 'School Games Award'.


•   Evidence of high levels of participation is available through club registers.


•   PE, sport and physical activity is shared with and supported by the parents.          One example being during "The Big Pedal" where children and parents were            encouraged to cycle or scoot to school. We placed 46th out of 500+ schools          nationally and 1st in Leeds with almost 50% of our children and parents taking        part.


•   Increased opportunity for swimming resulted in the majority of our pupils

    being able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance

    of at least 25 metres by the end of Y6.
