The Use and Impact of Sports Premium 2015-16


The Government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years academic years up until and including 19/20 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. The school will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that Parents/Carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Blackboys CE School.

How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding

We believe in a building a healthy outlook within the delivery and practice of sport and physical activity. Through sport and Physical Education we encourage a positive outlook towards competition, team work and a healthy lifestyle.

We actively encourage collaboration and partnership working, to make the best use of resources, and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.

Miss Stevens is currently undertaking an updated PE and School Sport audit and has developed our Sports Premium plan to raise standards and participation levels in PE throughout the school. Following completion of this audit our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, is as outlined below:

  • Inclusive ethos of PE and sport regardless of sporting ability.
  • Gifted and Talented pupils are able to showcase their ability in sporting competitions with other schools and teams.
  • Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
  • No child will be excluded from any sporting activities regardless of financial background.
  • To ensure that as a school we make effective use of collaborative and partnership working.

With this rationale in mind, and following government guidelines on expenditure, our plans for the use of the Sports Premium funding include: 

  • Continued membership of the Uckfield Primary Link School Sport, working with UCTC staff.
  • Continued working relationships as part of the Ringmer Schools Alliance.
  • Opportunities for all children, especially children in Key Stage 1, to participate in extra-curricular sporting clubs being run by outside specialist providers.
  • Increasing the amount of competitive sport that children can participate in both externally and internally.
  • Subsidising offsite swimming in order to ensure all Key Stage 2 children receive quality swimming lessons, overseen by a fully qualified swimming coach.
  • Employing qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules i.e. multi skills and football and dance.
  • Encouraging pupils to join out off site sports clubs out of school time.
  • Developing opportunities for children to take the lead in inter-house sporting competitions.
  • Purchasing of sports equipment to be specifically used during break and lunch time, to enhance a love of being active.


We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding each year as part of our whole school self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements.

We will assess how well we use our Sport Premium funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision. We will measure participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and to endeavor to be the best that they can be.

As well as measuring progress in PE, we will also look at children’s Personal, Social and Emotional development enhanced by the effective use of provision. We will conduct a sports provision survey to highlight pupil voice and engagement in sport in our school. We will compare with previous years surveys to measure the impact.  We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.

Summary of impact of Sport Premium in 2015/2016

  • There has been an increased positive attitude from many children in active participation in both lunchtime and after school clubs.
  • There has been an increase in available clubs to a wider range of age groups.
  • There is a continued range of competitive sporting events available alongside our Partnership and Alliance schools.
  • More children able to participate fully in PE lessons due to a wider and new variety of equipment readily available to use.
  • Improved confidence from teachers for delivering effective PE lessons due to ‘team teaching’ alongside specialist providers.
