Sports Premium Funding and PE and sports provision 2017/2018

The governor responsible for sport is Jo White

The PE Coordinator is Miss E Derbyshire

The Sports Premium Funding is awarded to all schools in order to fund improvements to the provision and lasting impact of PE and sport. This is to encourage pupils to develop healthy lifestyles and to raise the profile, quality and quantity of sport provision in school. The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and Sport in Primary Schools. More details can be found on the government website.

The funding for Milford Primary School for 2017/18 is £8378. We have agreed that the money should be used to: develop the breadth of the PE curriculum; help children to make links between staying healthy and sport; ensure staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development; increase the number of children participating in sport within our school and that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.

This year we will be in receipt of ‘Double Funding’ to maximise the impact of PE. This will be used to offer pupils a variety of sports clubs. Work is currently underway with KS2 mini leaders to identify different sports with a view to increasing participation, particularly KS2 pupils.

Our Priorities this year:

  1. To increase the levels of participation in sporting activities by the provision of after-school clubs, lunch time clubs and intra and inter sports competitions – focus group KS2.

  2. To provide for the more able and those that find sport difficult with targeted intervention.

  3. To help children to make links between staying healthy and sport.

Allocated Budget £8378

After School club contributions

Alternative activities (Volley and Bikeability contributions )



Last year, 2016/2017 we used our Sports Premium money to book high-level coaches to come and teach the children for different areas of sport during curriculum time, as well as lunch time and after school clubs. All the children in school had access to good quality after school and lunch time sports clubs resulting in a noticeable increase in attendance.

40% of children took part in whole school competitions.


After School Clubs

72% KS1 children attended.

51% of KS2 children attended.


Lunchtime Club

47% KS1 attended.

38% KS2 attended.


The Sports Premium money was also used to fund extra-curricular activities and alternative sports. All of KS2 had 6 weeks instruction in Golf at the local golf course. Year 5 received Bikeability training in Level 1 and Level 2 (biking on the road). Year 3 and 4 had a 6 weeks course on archery and fencing and KS1 took part in 6 weeks FUNdamentals.

In Year 5 we had a specialist coach in to deliver a 5 week Move and Learn programme which focussed on healthy lifestyles and physical activity. We also had a specialised coach in to deliver a 6 week Five60 programme to Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 which focussed on being healthy and active. These all received fantastic feedback from children, parents and staff.

Teachers have worked alongside coaches to plan and deliver lessons. The impact of the coaching being delivered in our school is that teachers are now more confident in teaching the different strands of each sport area; the assessment shows that we are seeing positive results in the children’s performance and all of our children receive good quality teaching.

This year we intend to build on last years’ success and specialised coaching for multi-skills, football, rugby, tennis, gymnastics and dance is already booked. We also want to develop our provision for the more able children with the continuation of mini-leader training and ensuring they have access to outside clubs. We want all of our children to foster a lifelong love of PE and sport so some of the funding will be used to fund Physical Literacy for those that find coordination and balance more challenging. We want to enhance the enjoyment of sport for all our pupils so a focus for us this year is to ensure we are skilled for the competitions that we enter. The funding will be used to support us to do this.
