PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the past 5 academic years to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to Primary Schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.


The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.



Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January.

All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Small schools with receive £500 per pupil.



Schools are held to account for how they spend the sport funding. Ofsted has strengthened its coverage of sport and PE within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision offered.


St Barnabas Sports Funding

Saint Barnabas Church of England Primary School has received grants of £8,900 for primary school sports each year for the last 5 years. This funding has increased this year to £13,000. Below you will find the review from last year:


2017-2018 Priorities:


Development of Sports Coordinator: This years funding will be used to provide professional development for the sports coordinator to enable her to successfully lead the further development of physical education across the school.


Development of Outside Sporting facilities for children: The school has seen a significant amount of funding invested in its buildings, however the outside provision now needs to be developed. We would like to sports equipment for use during break and lunch times. We will also be looking to replace dated and unsafe outside equipment.


Sports Clubs and Mentoring: The school will be increasing its provision of before and after school sports clubs. The schools sports coaches will also be running a series of mentoring sessions to help support our most vulnerable children to develop their social skills, emotional resilience, health understanding and confidence. Funding will also be used to improve school engagement in local sporting competitions.
