PE & Sport Premium


PE and Sports Premium

The Government is continuing to provide funding of £150 million per annum for the academic year 2018/2019. This funding will be directly allocated to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase.


 Amount for Academic Year

At Preston Grange, this will be calculated at £16,000 plus £10 per pupil for 2019/2020.


 Breakdown of Spend

  • Improve the provision for outdoor learning and activity £10,000
  • Improve staff subject knowledge and confidence for delivery of high quality PE lessons £6000
  • Increase the number of girls participating in football and football related activity £2000

For a more detailed breakdown see the PE funding plan.


 Effect on participation and attainment

We track participation in all extra-curricular activities which enables us to identify children who are making active and healthy choices. By analysing this data at regular intervals throughout the year we are able to target children who are not making active choices, open up a dialogue with them about the benefits of sport and activity and find ways to engage them in active and healthy choices.




  • The tracking system used to collect, track and analyse data has been updated. It is already proving to be much more efficient.
  • Coaches from Tyne Met College have been employed to run active lunchtime clubs across the school and encourage links with external clubs (e.g. Wild Cats Football). Using the tracking system, we can identify non-active children and invite them and a friend to attend. The coaches have been using pupil voice to decide on a programme of activities to engage and motivate the children.  
  • Of the children identified in the last academic year as not participating in any active club inside or outside of school, all have taken part in at least one active club offered by the school.

Ensuring Sustainable Improvement

A large proportion of our Sport Premium spend has been dedicated to improving the provision for outdoor learning and activity along with staff CPD, ensuring that the benefits from the funding carry through into subsequent years. Encouraging healthy, active lifestyles is a vital part of our role as teachers and educators. It is not solely a PE and Sport issue, but one that filters through all aspects of school life at Preston Grange Primary. Every member of staff is aware of the benefits and impact that a healthy and active lifestyle can give. We have a robust tracking system in place to monitor children’s activity levels. Data is shared with all staff ensuring a collective responsibility for promoting healthy and active lifestyles. We are then able to identify, target and provide opportunities for children who are not making active choices independently.



Children attend swimming lessons in Year 3 Spring term, Year 3 Summer term and Year 4 Autumn term. Lessons are delivered by staff at Tynemouth Swimming Pool.

End of Year 4 block of swimming 2017 (Year 5 2018-2019)

School Games Mark GOLD

The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark. We are thrilled to announce that following a successful application, we have been awarded Gold School Games Mark again.

The award measures all aspects of Sport and PE within school, including our provision of extra-curricular activities through after school clubs, the opportunities we provide for students to develop leadership skills, the way we promote sport and competition to parents and the local community and the opportunities we provide our students to compete at inter-school competitions.

I would especially like to express a huge thank you to Mrs Udberg as our PE subject leader, for her dedication, enthusiasm and constant passion to develop all aspects of PE, sport and active after-school clubs within our school.
