PE & Sports Premium

Sports Premium Funding

At West Ewell Primary School, we recognise the important contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils. We also believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on concentration, attitude and academic achievement for all our children.

Our Primary School Sports Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions, training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions and providing structured play at lunchtimes.

As outlined on gov.uk, schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of their physical education (PE), physical activity and sport.

Schools should use the premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:


Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sport clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2. Every child should leave primary school able to swim


Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement, for example by:

  • encouraging pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sport leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
  • embedding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active break times and active lessons and teaching


Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, for example by:

  • providing staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across your school
  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities


Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils, for example by:

  • introducing new sports and physical activities (such as dance, yoga or fitness sessions) to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • partnering with other schools to run sport activities and clubs
  • providing more (or broadening the variety of) extra-curricular activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sport organisations


Increased participation in competitive sport, for example by:

  • increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • organising, coordinating or entering more sport competitions or tournaments
