PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Sports Premium


The Sports Premium Grant is funding that comes into schools that is ring-fenced to be spent on the development of sports provision for all pupils.


Schools are free to spend the Sports Premium Grant as they see fit, but will be held accountable for its usage. From April 2014, the school is required to publicise information about its use of Sports Premium Grant.


At Scalford, we allocate the Sports Premium Grant based upon the development needs identified in the school’s self-evaluation. As we teach with a personalised approach, reporting in detail would compromise an individual’s privacy. It is important however that we share how the Sport’s Premium is going to be used for the children and the impact it will have on raising standards both in the delivery of sport and attainment across the school.


Impact of Sports Provision


As a result of using the Sports grant we have a seen marked increase in enthusiasm and engagement with sports. We have seen improved engagement with out of school sports, local sporting events, collaboration with other local schools and after school clubs.


Impact has been measured by:


  • Direct feedback by teachers on the quality of support offered by the specialist coaches for individual school sports.
  • Observations and evaluation of the teaching of Physical Education lessons by specialist our coach.
  • Evaluation of the quality of provision of extra-curricular clubs in relation to physical activity and school sport.
  • Increase in the number of children engaging in school sporting activities both within school and with other local schools.
  • Afterschool clubs have seen a dramatic increase from around 31% to 68% uptake.
  • We are currently developing a questionnaire to help measure current interest and enthusiasm by our pupils.
  • Increased range of sports observed both during lunchtimes and playtimes.
  • Observation of children who have developed a successful play leader programme involving all of the pupils from Reception to Year 6.
