Sport Premium Grant

Context of Sport Premium Grant (SPG):

The government believes that the sports premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current plans for a legacy after the London 2012 Olympic Games. The government recognises that physical education forms part of every child’s entitlement to a good education. It is unique in that it is taught through physical activity in weekly practical lessons both indoors and outdoors, in a wide range of physical, creative and aesthetic settings. It provides pupils with the generic skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become physically literate, and at the same time gives most of them their first regular experiences of sport. When taught well, physical education enthuses and inspires pupils to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise. The sports premium was introduced in 2013 and aims to improve the quality of provision in physical education and sport in every state primary school in England. The information below provides a summary of funding spent at Blackbrook Community Primary School. It does not represent an exhaustive list of provisions made.

Vision for PE and Sport at Blackbrook Primary:

We aim to have ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Objectives for the SPG funding: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary school against 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport


By planning to meet these objectives we plan to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport. Our focus is that spending will lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.
