Sports Premium

The primary PE and sports premium, which is ring-fenced for primary schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to their physical activity offer, was launched in 2013 as part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy.

The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officer guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).

Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

ALL pupils leaving primary school should be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators, the order of which have changed this year to reflect the governments priorities for securing improvement in school sports:

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

In the Year 2022-23 our school received £19235.00 of Sports Premium funding.

At Pelton Community Primary School we are committed to providing varied and exciting sporting opportunities for our pupils.  The following plans show how the premium is being allocated in our school and how it has been previously utilised.

Sport and Physical Education Premium Plan 2022-2023 Impact Evaluation

Sport and Physical Education Premium Plan 2023-2024



At our school we understand the importance of water safety and encourage children to become confident in swimming.

We acknowledge that many children have worked hard to gain back physical skills lost due to the impact of the COVID19 Pandemic.  We have altered our swimming delivery to ensure children have the greatest opportunity to become competent swimmers.

We are proud to publish that:

69% of Year 6 children were assessed as able to swim 25 metres without the use of swimming aids.

67% of Year 6 children were assessed as able to demonstrate a range of recognised swimming strokes competently, confidently and proficiently.

69% of Year 6 children were assessed as able to perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.
