Sports Premium

What is Sports Premium? 

The government allocate funding to support physical education (PE) and sport provision in primary schools.

At Peters Hill Primary, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools

Whilst schools are free to spend the Sport Premium as they see fit, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium.

How Peters Hill Primary is spending the Sport premium?

From our monitoring it was realised that to get the best value we can for Peters Hill pupils, we needed to focus on the training needs of staff, enabling the school to have greater impact in the teaching and learning over the long term.

Last year (2015 -2016) we received a sports premium grant of £11,429.

The school used the premium, to employ a specialist coach firm - ‘RB Gym & Sport Ltd’, a sport company run by Ryan Bradley (ex British Gymnast and commonwealth medallist) who has a long and established relationship with the school.

This included having a detailed programme of coaching for both gymnastics and games with the specialist coaches in on 4 days of the week. Staff worked alongside the specialists to develop their gymnastic teaching and assessment in P.E. It enabled enable staff training and expert gym coaching for the children.

Some of the funding was also used to purchase an online cyber-dancing system for use when the hall was out of use for wet weather days and school productions, so ensuring the children still receive their 2 hours allocation of weekly PE.
