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 £17,775 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: Sport Premium Plan 2023

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 2023 swimming provision, 36% of the our Year 6 children completed their primary education achieving all 3 of 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 gained the Southampton Healthy High Five GOLD Award aiming to improve health and fitness in our children by completing Active 10 and a mindfulness minute; giving children opportunities to grow plants and nurture nature and giving children access to water and healthy breakfasts and lunches.
