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


In line with Ofsted recommendations, published October 2017, our Sport Premium Funding is to be spent addressing improvements in each of the following 5 key indicators. 


  • Increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5-18 engage in at least 60 minutes go physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport
