Sport Premium 2018/19

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding- provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport- will be allocated to primary schools.

Purpose of the funding

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they have the freedom to choose the best way of using the money.

Possible uses of the funding:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers.
  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers.
  • Provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport.
  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs.
  • Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games.
  • Run sports activities with other schools.


From September 2013, schools are held to account over how they spend the additional funding. Ofsted will be looking at how the school has spent the money and whether any impact has been made.

Sports Funding 2018/2019

Vision: ALL pupils leaving Hillary Primary School are physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Objective: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools against 5 key indicators:

  1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. increased participation in competitive sport

Key priorities to date:

Key achievements/What worked well:

Key Learning/What will change next year:

We will continue to develop staff CPD with the help of our sports company, Aspire.

The company will also work with reception and nursery staff. We will allow staff to have a CPD session each term with a sports coach to allow them to plan progression lessons that will challenge and encourage excellence in P.E.


We will increase the awareness of having a healthy lifestyle. We will run a club involving children and parents. This will start from January 2017. The impact will be children having more awareness of how to lead a healthy lifestyle and incorporate physical exercise.


We have started a Gifted and Talented club to promote the More Able achieving their potential. We plan to take them on visits to see different sports matches/venues/dance shows.


The program with Aspire, ‘Maths on the move’ will continue with all classes in each year’s (3 and 5) and an extra session for other children within the year groups to help build the children’s skills.


Zumba/dance sessions will also be provided for the children after school. We will hope this will then lead to competitions/showcases with other schools.






CPD has been provided through the current arrangements and so this objective was met for some staff. New members of staff and NQTs became a priority to receive half termly training support.


A healthy eating approach was recognised through Design and Technology/ Science lessons however may not have always been shown the link to Physical Education.



After school clubs ran effectively and a range of pupils gained access to a range of sports provision. A group of 30 children who have participated in an after school dance club, travelled to a dance festival at the Forest Arts, Walsall. Funding was used for transport to the venue as well as paying for the participation fee.


Teachers have had access to engaging CPD where the use of PE has supported physical development and Mathematics at the same time. Teachers have had to observe these sessions. Impact has been measured through teacher questionnaires (please refer to Co-ordinators records). This has been positive.


Dance sessions have been taking place weekly. These sessions have improved participants fitness, however, evidence collection of this needs to be improved next year through fitness tests.

Events were planned for further competitive dance festivals,however these were cancelled by the provider.


 Fitness tests have been carried out at the start and end of a term which helped improve fitness levels and stamina levels.

Less CPD sessions will take place due to change of Sports provider and timetable however teachers will be expected to observe at least 3 P.E lessons in the academic year.

NQT sports provision improved


 Next year PE leaders will be discussing the provision of a sessions CPD for staff to observe and team teach, that provides children with the knowledge they require for making healthy choices.

PE co-ordinators to work alongside science and DT co-ordinators to look at provision of healthy eating lessons across the school, in line with the new curriculum long term plan.

Funding will be provided for ingredients. Impact to be measured through pupil attitudes questionnaire.


Increased participation in competitive sports that involve other schools and so we will be looking at new opportunities and provision that would lead to links with other schools e.g. Willenhall EAct Academy who run a competitive sports programme for primary schools. Funding would be made available for transportation costs and access fees. A new cluster is willing to make links with our school through inter-school competitions.


More evidence of assessment and data collection needed this year to help measure impact.
