Sports Premium

The government gives extra funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


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

The main objectives for the funding are:


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


How will we be spending the PE & Sports Funding and who will benefit?


The Governors of Pokesdown Primary School agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development and to assist in the development of the sports curriculum across the school.
