PE and Sport Premium


The Government set up the PE and Sports Premium to fulfil the legacy to inspire young people to play more sport following the success of the London Olympics 2012.

The PE and Sports Premium was designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer to pupils.

Schools receive PE and Sports premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6, the amount allocated per school is dependent on the number on pupils on roll for the academic year.

Use of PE and Sports Premium

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

At Plumpton School we aim to use the funding to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer and to make improvements that will benefit pupils joining our school in the future. Below is a list of ways we have used the PE and Sports Premium at Plumpton School:


  • Payment of qualified coaches to work alongside class teachers; cricket, cycling, rugby
  • Provide payment towards transport with neighbouring schools to provide transport to inter-school sports tournaments; cross country, netball, football, gymnastics
  • Provide opportunities for children to access extra-curricular clubs after school; Carlisle Ski Club, Eden Rock Climbing Wall
  • Provide swimming for all pupils on roll
  • Provide staffing cover for gifted and talented children to attend coaching opportunities; dance
  • Provide funding for pupils to access additional activities including John Muir Award Levels 1 and 2
  • Provide funding for specialist teacher to lead outdoor learning programme for KS1 pupils alongside class teachers


Plumpton School 2016 – 2017

At Plumpton School we have been allocated a lump sum of £8000 plus £5 per pupil bringing the total amount for this academic year to £8285.


Intended Use for 2016 – 2017





Impact of PE and Sports Premium on pupils

At Plumpton School we greatly value the importance that PE and Sport have in the National Curriculum. Our outdoor curriculum is supported by our fantastic local environment, and with the Lake District National Park on our doorstep we are in an enviable position. However, we always search for ways to enhance our provision for the children at Plumpton School, which is why we measure the impact our spending of the PE and Sports Premium to ensure improvements to the curriculum are made.
