Sport Premium Grant

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million each year for 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school. Each school receives £8000, plus £5 per pupil on roll. For 2015-16, our total grant was £9750. 


At Yearsley Grove Primary school, we pride ourselves on being a happy and healthy place to learn. We’ve developed an action plan to ensure this funding is invested to maximise the long term impact of our PE provision for pupils and staff.

Our Sports’ funding plan (below) show how we are currently investing the money in 2016-17. We have closely monitored the impact of these initiatives through assessment of children’s skills, staff and pupil feedback, uptake of clubs etc. and continue to do so.

Sports Premium Report 2016-17

Principles at Yearsley Grove Primary School:

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils.

We recognise that there are many benefits to ensuring that all children participate in sports or other physical activities: 

- Develops strength, mobility and physical endurance,

- Supports the establishment of healthy lifestyles for life,

- Helps in weight control, especially important in light of current levels of childhood obesity,

- Develops social skills especially team work,

- Develops friendships,

- It is fun!


Our intention is to use additional funding in three ways:

-  to broaden our provision to offer a wider remit of activities; 

-  to ensure that children have the opportunity to take part in a sporting activity everyday ; 

-  to consolidate existing provision especially at lunchtimes and playtimes ensuring that children have the opportunity and are encouraged to be physically active.

Sport Premium Funding is universal and therefore our aim will be for maximum benefit for all our pupils, including and especially those that may not ordinarily see themselves as ‘sporty’. Our typical current provision includes:

- One hour of sports coaching delivered by a specialist sports coach including a variety of after school and lunchtime clubs.

- Swimming for Year 2, 3 & 5 children throughout the year.

- A wide range of clubs including football, badminton, tennis, tag rugby, netball, rounders, hockey, gymnastics, dance, athletics and multi-skills throughout the year.

- Year 5 & 6 play leaders trained to deliver lunchtime activities at KS1.

- Participation in local tournaments and leagues.

- Participation in one-off taster events each term i.e. Badminton, volleyball, climbing wall (where possible linked to local clubs)

- Bikeability training for Y6.
