Primary School’s Sports Funding
What is the PE and Sports Premium?
The Government has provided additional funding to support the provision of quality primary PE and school sport from September 2013. The funding was initially for 2 years but has recently been extended until 2020.
Each school will receive a lump sum plus an additional £10 per pupil. Fairfield will receive approximately £17800 and Colneis approximately £19500, for the academic year 2017-18.
Provision in school
At Fairfield and Colneis, we provide a range of high quality Physical Education and a wide range of sport. However, our intention is that this funding will further enhance the current provision in school.
It will be used to ensure that:
- all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
- all children have the opportunity to compete in competitions at some level
- the most able KS2 children are given the opportunity to participate in high level competitions
- staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
- the new funding will increase the range of sports available to children.
Our funding in 2017/18 will be used in the following way:
At both schools to:
- work with the Schools Games Organisation to further develop sporting skills and compete in Inter-school competitions
- release PE subject leaders to observe PE lessons, feedback to staff and share good practice
- employ a sports leader to introduce and support playground games during lunchtimes
- provide places for identified children in sport related after-school and holiday clubs
- provide enrichment opportunities across the school, to all year groups – they will experience new sports and this will lead into some targeted clubs
- purchase resources to support the teaching and learning in all PE lessons
- additional Gym Trail equipment to further develop fine and gross motor control in identified children
- develop a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) to provide children with an additional surface for PE and clubs
- fund training courses for staff in gymnastics to improve subject knowledge and quality of teaching
Updates on outcomes relating to our provision for PE and sport will be provided throughout the school year through the school newsletters and our website.
The impact of the funding will also be reported annually to parents and governors via the school website and termly governors meetings.

For the academic year 2017/2018, we are currently planning to contribute towards the development of the EYFS outdoors provision, which will support the development of the children’s gross motor skills. We will also increase the range of choice of equipment available to children at break and lunchtime to ensure they are fully engaged in physical activity. Years 1 and 2 will also take part in some enrichment days provided by Premier Sports, providing the children with exciting new opportunities.
Through conversations with the children and newly appointed sports leaders the employment of sports coaches to support specific, targeted sports at lunchtimes at both schools will continue. In addition, the funding will be used to increase sport participation across the school, in both competitive and non-competitive sports. This will be through the enrichment days already mentioned and also through the introduction of no football Friday, where new equipment will be provided for the children to play with.
