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 £8,890 in Sport Premium.  We are planning to spend the money in the following ways:

  • Professional development for teachers in delivering high quality PE lessons
  • Expert sports coaches to deliver high quality PE lessons
  • Positive attitudes to sports and physical activity

“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 to Years 3, 4 and 5.  At the end of this year's swimming provision, 59% of the Year 5 children achieved 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 made contact with a new initiative ‘Life Lab’ run by Southampton University and Southampton Hospital.

The whole school have also had a visit from the ‘Tooth Bus’, allowing children who had not been to the dentist in two years to have a check-up and advisory letter sent to their parents. We knew there was a need for this from general observations but the feedback from the dentist was that this was the worst case of tooth decay she had seen in a school in two years. Reinforcing the needs for the projects highlighted above.
