PE and Sports Premium

We aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport. We set up after school sports lessons which enable children to become enthusiastic about sport and subsequently adopt a healthy routine. We have established a football and netball team which has allowed children who are particularly gifted in the sport to compete regularly.

We enter numerous school sport competitions to allow children to be competitive and we are constantly developing our PE programme.

We aim to improve the quality of the school P.E. programme by:

  • Auditing staff to highlight development areas
  • Delivering P.E. focused staff training through staff meetings
  • Employment of sports specialist to teach pupils and mentor staff
  • Investigate and explore good practice from other schools to further improve our P.E. curriculum

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014 - 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. 


For the academic year Sept 2016 – August 2017, Phoenix Primary School received £9,700.

For the academic year Sept 2015 – August 2016, Phoenix Primary School received £9,665.

For the academic year Sept 2014 – August 2015, Phoenix Primary School received £9,575.

How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding?

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and 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.

As a school we aim to use the PE Premium to achieve the following:

  • Investment in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport for years to come. This will include providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport and team teaching with PE Consultants and secondary school PE teachers.
  • Membership of the London PE & School Sport Network based at Bacon’s College, Rotherhithe.
  • Increasing the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate - running sport competitions, and increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games and inter school competitions.
  • Organising a netball and football team of children who show elite ability in the sport, providing opportunities to train regularly and compete.
  • Continuing to take part in local sports competitions/events organised by The London PE & School Sports Network.
  • Offering extra swimming sessions in order to ensure more able swimmers participate in swimming activities in an environment which will stretch and challenge their swimming ability (regardless of their financial situation).
  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules e.g. cricket making links to other community sports providers – encouraging pupils to join out of school sports clubs.
  • Encouraging our children to improve their leadership skills through sport – through sports leader initiative.
  • Developing intra-school competitions.
  • Developing the outdoor and adventurous activities element of the PE curriculum, utilising the school's own grounds and facilities, purchasing equipment to offer access to new sports and physical activities as relevant. 


We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE. It is anticipated that at the end of the academic year we will have some hard data to show the impact of this sports premium funding on pupil progress and involvement in sport.
