PE and Sport Premium Grant 2018/19
At All Saints’ we believe that physical education is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development. During this academic year, the Government will be providing additional funding to improve PE and Sport in all primary schools.
The purpose of the PE and Sport grant is to further enhance the provision of PE to enable all children to lead active and healthy lifestyles, which they will continue into adulthood. The funding is ring-fenced and will only be used for this purpose.
How the funding is allocated
For 2017-18, schools with 17 or more pupils aged 5-11 years (Jan 2017 census) received £16,000, plus £10 per eligible pupil. For 2018-19, schools with 17 or more pupils aged 5-11 years (Jan 2018 census) will receive £16,000, plus £10 per eligible pupil.

How the funding will be used this year
The PE Curriculum
- A Lead Professional for PE to monitor external providers and train staff.
- Specialist coaches will be employed to teach specific sports e.g. rugby; cricket; basketball; gymnastics; dance.
- PE Leader release to provide training for all support staff to develop small group skills teaching.
- PE Leader release to develop the quality of dance throughout the school.
Intra and inter school competition
- We have joined our local schools in an Association to support the School Games Programme. The Association provides professional development opportunities to improve the delivery of sport for both curricular and enrichment activities.
- A contribution will be allocated to fund PE Leader release to continue to attend all School Games events, Change for Life festivals, London Youth Games and friendly tournaments organised with local schools.
- PE Leader release and specialist coaches to train children for competitive tournaments.
- A contribution will be allocated to fund the provision of coaches to regularly run fully inclusive intra school tournaments and a School Sports Day at Sutcliffe Park Athletics Track.
- Specialist coaches will be employed to identify and nurture the talent of more able children.
- Children in years 5&6 will be targeted to receive extra swimming tuition.
- Further equipment will be purchased to enhance the quality of all PE lessons e.g. basketball posts.
The impact of the funding from 2017/18
- An intensive approach to swimming for Year 4 has resulted in most Year 5 children being able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
- Extra swimming tuition offered in Year 6 meant that all children leaving All Saints’ were given the opportunity to be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
- The use of Coaches Eye on the purchased iPads was trialed in one class. The children developed an excellent vocabulary when self and peer assessing. They became confident in using the iPad as well as critiquing their own and others’ performance.
- By joining the School Games Association and funding staff cover and transport, the children were able to attend all inter school tournaments run by Lewisham. All children in KS2 were able to attend a competitive event.
- Further equipment purchased enabled children to have smaller intra games in PE lessons and for two classes to be taught the same sport together. This allowed further differentiation to develop skills.
