Sport Premium

Sport Premium – How we are using the money

The Sport Premium is an additional amount of money given to schools in addition to their main budget.  Every school receives a fixed amount of money for each pupil.  The money is provided to schools so that we can improve the provision of PE and sport and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.    

We must report to you the level of Sport Premium, how we have used it and what difference it has made.  This year, the school received £17,700 in Sport Premium.  We are planning to spend the money in the following ways:

  • Engage all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • Raise the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Provide broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

Here is how we plan to spend the money this year: 2018-19 Sport Premium plan

Impact of 2017-18 sports premium money

Total number of eligible pupils on roll: 170

Total amount of Sports Premium received: £17,700

How have we spent the Sports Premium money?

  • £1,100 – Continued Professional Development in PE for all our teachers
  • £400 – extra staffing hours to cover competitions
  • £1,158 – Swimming that is beyond curriculum requirement with three year groups accessing swimming lessons
  • £1,514 – Over time for staff to run free clubs
  • £350 – maintenance of field markings
  • £2,800 – Mini bus contribution to access swimming and off-site sporting events
  • £500 - investment in sporting equipment 
  • £500 – Playground equipment that increases physical activity
  • £200 Releasing SLT members to meet with Coaches and Premier League Primary Stars throughout the year to plan, manage and review provision
  • £1314 Employing a Lunchtime Supervisor to run Fun Club for identified children

 With the unexpected additional funding being paid in April 2018, it was not factored into the original spending plan for 2017-18. This surplus will be rolled over into the Autumn 2018 plan.

What are we proud of this year?

  • Three day PGL activity residential where children take part in a range of physical activities


Impact of this year’s actions:

  • Full involvement in competitions and sporting events from Premier League Primary Stars Programme.
  • Access to sports clubs maintained despite budget constraints with five sports clubs being offered a week.
  • Positive attitudes to PE from both staff and pupils

“It’s fun! We get to do loads of different sports and get out in the fresh air.”

  • Increased confidence amongst teachers to deliver PE.

“I now have a bank of PE warm up games, which I didn't have before. My non-existent gymnastics knowledge has much improved and I really enjoyed teaching it. I have also learnt how to consider differentiation within PE - something I wouldn't have thought of before.”


National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

At Redbridge Primary School, we offer swimming throughout KS2. At the end of the 2018 swimming provision, 35% of the our Year 6 children completed their primary education achieving the National requirements for Swimming and Water safety. 


How else are we supporting a healthy, active lifestyle?

Although not funded by the sport’s premium, the children have enjoyed and have benefited from the new installation of the fitness equipment supporting our drive to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

As well as this, we have planned healthy lifestyle projects in Year R, Year 2 and Year 4 with the intention on re-visiting the basics of healthy living (teeth cleaning, diet and exercise) each time with the hope that the children employ these habits in their lifestyles at home.

We have also signed up to the Southampton High Five initiative aiming to improve health and fitness in our children by completing the daily mile and mindfulness minute; giving children opportunities to grow plants and nurture nature and giving children access to water and healthy breakfasts and  lunches.
