Sport Premium Funding

Breakdown of 2016-2017 spending


How the Primary PE and Sport Premium is used and its impact on outcomes for pupils at Bartley C of E Junior School.


Sports Premium Funding:


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport.   The purpose of this funding is to be used to further improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.


Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils.  Each school will be given an £8000 lump sum plus an additional £5 per pupil (as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2013) for the academic years following 2013-14.


Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participating in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they’re capable of. However, the government released updated guidelines (October 2015) which outlines the best ways of spending the money for maximum impact. This guidance has been included as an appendix.




From September 2013, inspectors will assess and report on how effectively this new funding is being used to improve sport provision when making the judgement on the quality of the school’s leadership and management.


Inspectors will use evidence gained from meetings with school leaders, including governors to assess the impact of additional funding on improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.  Inspectors may also use evidence from observations of lessons and/or extra-curricular sports clubs, and discussions with pupils.


School are also required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.


Sports Premium funding at Bartley C of E Junior School:


Lump Sum


361 Pupils (January census) £5 per pupil


Total Sports Premium Funding




For the academic year 2016-17, Bartley received £9805 and it was spent in the following ways:





Training of staff for swimming coaching and lifeguarding.


All children were able to benefit from receiving swimming lessons tailored to their needs, in an environment that they were comfortable learning in and with members of staff that they know and trust.

Pool facilities and upkeep.


All children were able to benefit from receiving swimming lessons tailored to their needs, in a clean, safe environment that they were comfortable learning in.

Specialist sport coaching from Serving Tennis.


All children were able to receive high quality coaching in tennis. The teachers were able to watch the lessons as training for themselves and also use the time to assess the children in PE to improve their future planning and teaching of sport. This new partnership has also enabled us to offer Tennis as an after school club (which is paid for by parents) but provides a free place per term to a PP eligible child.

Membership to the NFSSP.


The New Forest School Sports Partnership run numerous sporting events throughout the year which are open to all children. The NFSSP also run training for teachers.

Petrol and Upkeep for Mini Bus


We pay a small percentage of the costs to run the minibus as it is used almost weekly to provide transport for children to attend sporting competitions. Competition is an important part of the PE curriculum and by entering so many events every child has had the opportunity to put themselves forward for a sporting event.

Cover for teachers.


This has enabled Bartley to enter more sporting competitions than ever before. Competition is an important part of the PE curriculum and by entering so many events every child has had the opportunity to put themselves forward for a sporting event.

PE equipment.


Purchasing more high quality sports equipment means we can have more children taking an active role in the PE lessons and learning more effectively.

Real PE Inset Day


As suggested in last year’s report we have paid to have specialist training for all staff, plus additional subject training for the PE leader. This will improve the quality of PE teaching by Bartley staff and raise confidence. As all teachers will receive the training (and the PE leader will train any new staff) the impact of this expense will be seen for many years to come.

Total Spent


Remaining money (includes £805 credit from 2015-16) £5659.94

Proposed Spending for the remainder of 2016-17


We will continue to train more staff to run swimming lessons, upkeep the pool and pay membership for the NFSSP as all of these facilities have been extremely beneficial for delivering high quality PE provision.


Following the real PE inset day I hope to facilitate the return of sport Fridays, but with the teachers from the year group running the sessions alongside the PE leader rather than paying coaches to come in.


I would also like to ensure that no child leaves Bartley C of E Junior School unable to swim 25m unaided. Using some of the Sport Premium money to open the pool earlier and pay staff to teach and provide the life-saving service, would help towards achieving this goal. We also intend to replace more of the outdated and damaged sport equipment which will ensure the growth of after school sport clubs.


Appendix 1


Instructions from Direct Gov on how to use the sport premium money.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.


This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


For example, you can use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools


You should not use your funding to:

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of your core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum).
