Sport Premium 2023-24 Expenditure


For the academic Year September 2023 to July 2024 the school will receive £16,000 + £10 per pupil for PE and Sport Premium funding.

We must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer to pupils.


Aims for the use of Sports Funding:

  • To increase fitness levels for all pupils
  • Increase opportunities for competitive sport
  • To increase skill levels in PE
  • Purchase of PE and sport  equipment
  • Specialist sport coaches to deliver high quality sport sessions for pupils


The 5 key indicators where improvements should be seen are:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, aiming for 30 minutes a day within school time
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport


We aim to meet the curriculum expectations with the help of the Sport Premium Funding by providing:

  • A growth in traditional and alternative sports
