PE and School Sport Funding

PE and Sport Premium Funding was first administered in 2012. This funding, only to be spent on PE and sport, is given directly to schools annually for them to decide how best to meet their children’s needs, with the aim of improving the quality of provision and access to sporting opportunities in every primary school in England.

In 2021-22, we received £17,130, which we combined with a post-COVID underspend from previous years of £16,969 to make a total of £34,099. We also added £6524 from DFC to provide capital expenditure for improvements to enable us to action our PE and school sport action plan. The funding was allocated in the following way, according to our priorities:

  • subscribing to the Macclesfield SSP / Cheshire and Warrington Sports Partnership to enable our children to take part in Level 1, 2 and 3 School Games competitions and to access specialist coaching and support from additional staff
  • purchasing mentoring time and partnership work from Steve Sachro at Wilmslow High School
  • Complete PE Membership and Resources
  • dance coaching and curriculum support for all classes, including prep for and participation in Commonwealth dance Festival for Classes 3 and 4
  • yoga coaching and curriculum delivery for all classes across the year, to support mental and physical wellbeing, as well as for Sports Week 2022
  • netball coaching for all pupils from Year 2 upwards and an after school club promoting club links with Wilmslow Lightning
  • football coaching and curriculum support for Sports Week 2022 – all age
  • cricket coaching and curriculum support for Sports Week 2022 – all age
  • skateboard coaching and curriculum support for Sports Week 2022 – all age
  • repairs and improvements to outdoor fixed sports equipment
  • replenishing sports equipment and extending stock to include full class sets of resources
  • transport to and from sporting events
  • trophies and medals for intra-school competitions, Sports Week 2022 and engraving for WEP cluster trophies
  • Focus on EYFS gross motor skill development post-lockdown with resourcing and active play organisation including: 
    • resourcing extension of EYFS bikes, trikes and large play provision including storage and purchasing a wide range of accessible vehicles, including a digger to develop core strength and manipulation

    • designing and resourcing a large mud kitchen area

  • Focus on KS1 and KS2 active play, stamina, strength and gross motor skill development post-lockdown with resourcing and active play organisation including:
    • reorganisation and new resources for active play areas for KS1 and KS2 including developing traversing walls and coordination trails / static equipment for improving gross motor skills, fitness and engagement during playtime and lunchtime sessions (supplemented by DFC grant funding for groundwork and landscaping)

The impact of this funding has been measured through:

  • direct feedback by teachers on the quality of support offered by the specialists, and the impact on improvement in the delivery of PE and school sport by teaching staff
  • the increase in the number of children engaging in intra- and inter-school sporting activities, particularly targeted groups (PPG, previous non-participants, SEND)
  • the number of children attending a sports club either in school or via a local club
  • an increase in the number of different sports that pupils are able to take part in within the curriculum offer, with links to clubs and external providers 
  • accelerated progress across the Reception year with 89% of pupils (8/9) achieving their ELG in gross and fine motor skills
  • accelerated achievement of pupils in PE with 89% making at least expected progress, and 40% making better than expected progress across Year 1-6
  • the recognition of high quality provision and impact on achievement through the Platinum School Games Award (July 2022)

In 2022-23 we have received £17,100 and the proposed spedn is detailed in our PE and School Sport Plan.
