PE and Sport Premium

At Smeeth Community Primary School, all children receive two hourly curriculum sessions per week, dedicated to physical activity through both Games and PE lessons.  We believe that PE and Games contribute to the development of young people. As well as improving fitness and health by participating in sport, children learn key values of teamwork, perseverance, respect for others and fair play.  This can be done through the participation of lessons, after school activities and competitions, both in and out of school.


We also aim to use the investment to find sustainable solutions. We believe in investing first and foremost in existing teaching staff and ensuring that staff are developed professionally.  This therefore means a significant investment in teacher support which will be provided by a PE specialist, who places emphasis on supporting teachers in their own CPD. This will ensure that when the funding ends, the quality of teaching and learning will be sustained.


In April 2013, the Government announced a new funding called the Sport Premium, to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in schools.


For this academic year, 2018/2019, the school will receive £18,434 in additional Sports Funding direct from the Government. We use the Sport Premium to improve provision in a number of ways.


All children receive specialist PE lessons. We ensure that all staff have the opportunity to develop further in order to secure the best teaching and learning possible. £13,200 is allocated to this.


We have purchased a sports package from the North School for £600 to enable us to participate in local Sports events.


Equipment - netballs, footballs, trophies, large mats, windballs, basket balls and mobile training posts for badminton - £1,361.


We attend additional sports tournaments and the transportation costs forecast are £500.


In addition, we purchase the 5-a-day Fitness Programme at £252 and we have spent an extra amount on spare kits/plimsolls etc to ensure children do not miss out due to forgotten kit wherever possible.


The impact of the Sport Premium will be to:

  • raise standards in PE across the school through high quality teaching
  • raise participation levels of pupils taking part in clubs or sporting activities, including inter-competitions.


In addition, we have funded after school gymnastics club where appropriate.
