PE and Sports Premium

Schools receive P.E. and sport premium funding based on the number of children they have on roll. At Eastrop, we receive £8000 plus an additional £5 per pupil. This equates to £8830.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that they already offer
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, schools can use funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach P.E. and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

How do we use the Sports Premium?

At Eastrop, we use our PE funding to:

  • improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision
  • increase participation in PE and sport so that all children develop healthy lifestyles and fulfil their sporting potential
  • buy into our local cluster’s schools partnership in which our children attend and play in multisport events
  • buy new playground equipment to develop active play at lunch and break times
  • give children the opportunity and responsibility to be playground sports leaders
  • offer extended sporting opportunities, through after school clubs
  • enable our P.E. leader to attend training and share best practice with the staff
