PE and Sport Premium Expenditure 2017/2018

What is the Sports Premium?

The government’s funding of the Sports Premium to school is continuing for the next two years. The funding which is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year for the next two years – our allocation is £20,300 for the year 17/18. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.

 Vision for PE and Sport Premium

ALL pupils leaving primary school 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.


To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.


In the Childhood Obesity Plan of Action, released by the government in January 2017, it has been revealed that two thirds of children are falling below the recommended level of fitness and that one third of children are now recognised as being obese or overweight. The document insists on the need for immediate action and is requesting that ‘all children enjoy an hour of exercise every day and 30 of these minutes should come at school’.

 With The Sports Pupil Premium funding we have received we aim to improve the provision of PE and sport for every child in our school. In addition we will deliver daily opportunities to increase the amount of time the children at Elm Academy spend taking part in exercise. These opportunities will be delivered via active lunch times, PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs, active lessons and other sports and physical activity events.

 A focus this year for Elm Academy has been to promote the importance of sport and physical activity in our school. As well as enhancing the lives of our children by teaching them to be active and healthy. Sports also teach children morals when following rules and developing sportsmanship. There is also evidence that physical activity and participating in organised sports and after school clubs is linked to improved

academic performance.
