WHAT IS THE SPORTS PREMIUM?
The Government is providing funding directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children, the funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
PURPOSE OF FUNDING
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
HOW WE SPEND THE FUNDING AND WHO BENEFITS?
The staff, children and governors at St. Cuthbert’s Primary all agree that the money must be used so that:
- all children benefit regardless of sporting ability,
- children are given the opportunity to compete and participate in festivals and competitions,
- staff have access to resources and training opportunities, plus continued professional development to improve the quality of teaching and learning in physical education,
- we explore ways to ensure that as many pupils as possible leave us able to be water safe and swim at least 25 metres,
- children are exposed to a range of traditional and non-traditional sports and health enhancing activities through the curriculum, clubs and school visits.
HOW OUR SPORTS PREMIUM FUND WAS SPENT IN THE YEAR 2020 – 2021 AND THE IMPACT IT HAS HAD
For the 2020-21 academic year we received £17,400 Sports Premium funding.
- Investment in the Easington Sports Partnership. This has given us access to competitions and festivals held on site due to COVID restrictions, access to specialist teachers and coaches who supported our staff and pupils in PE lessons and access to online resources during lockdown.
- Investment in a sports coach to work alongside teachers boosting movement skills and enhancing PE provision.
- Resources and days with Hoopstarz and Skipping School to engage all pupils, provide opportunities for active time each day and encourage our least active pupils.
- Equipment for PE to enhance the quality of lessons in athletics and games.
- Hoodies for all pupils as part of our new PE uniform to raise the profile of PE and extend PE lessons by taking away the need to get changed for PE.
- Working with OASES to map and plan outdoor and adventurous activities in our school grounds.
SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2020-21 ACADEMIC YEAR INCLUDE:
- Participation in a range of competitions despite lockdown thanks to our Sports Partnership.
- Winning medals in gymnastics, tennis and coming in third place overall in the ESSP Olympics this summer.

- To ensure that all children are receiving high quality opportunities to participate and develop their skills in a range of sports and games.
