Sports Premium Grant

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The government is spending over £450 million on this funding over the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16.


More recently, the government has agreed to extend this funding until at least 2020.


Guidance for schools on the funding, including details of funding allocations and advice on how to spend it, has been made available.


Specific information about how we are going to allocate these funds, and the impact it has on the children attending our school, is provided below. Please note that this information, particularly on the impact of this spending, will be updated throughout the academic year.

Caedmon's PE Vision Statement


PE and school sport are very important parts of our curriculum.


We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and, through participation, our children build and develop our key values of respect, co-operation, achieve and enjoy. The subject leadership of this area has been prioritised in order to support CPD and to raise the both the profile and delivery of PE and sport across the school.

Using the PE and Sport Premium


We must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities we offer our pupils, but we are free to choose the best way of using the money in line with Ofsted Guidance and advice.


Therefore, Caedmon's PE and Sport Premium funding will be used to address each of the following objectives:


1. To continue to develop the profile of Physical Education, school sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle throughout all areas of the school.


2. Ensure the delivery of a high quality and varied PE curriculum that enthuses and                 engages children in the development of physical literacy.


3. To increase participation levels in extra curricular competitive sport and after school         clubs across all areas of then school.

4. Provide quality assured professional development opportunities for teachers, enabling         high quality teaching and learning for all children through access to external partners and coaches to support the delivery of curriculum Physical Education.


5. Develop links to external sports clubs to promote continued participation in extra curricular physical activity and sport for children across the school. 


6. Provide access to highly trained and qualified coaches who are able to up skill and               support a range of staff throughout the school in offering a range of extra curricular       sports clubs.
