Together we Shine Academically, Personally & Socially

Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

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

This means that the premium should be used to:

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

For example, funding can be used 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 and holiday clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in competitive sport
  • run sports activities with other schools


Impact of PE and Sport funding for the academic year 2017-2018


 How will we be spending the Sports Premium in 2016/17


The Governing Body have agreed that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability, the most able are given the chance to compete in tournaments and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development. 

In 2016/17 we received £8000 in Sports funding. We have used £4000 of this sports fund in order to lease a minibus for 12 months. The minibus enables us to cost-efficiently attend sports fixtures across the region; including the National Cheerleading finals in Manchester. It will also bring down the cost of travel to weekly swimming sessions for years 3, 4 and 5.

We have replaced older PE equipment including resources for Basketball, Cricket, Badminton, Tennis and Hockey at a cost of £500. We have used a further £500 to buy resources to engage the children in physical activity at lunch times and break times. These resources are phase appropriate and the school council helped to decide on the equipment purchased.

We have purchased cheerleading team kits to enable the team and teachers to represent the school at the National Finals. This has also been used weekly by the team during Cheerleading practise. This has cost £300.

We have spent £1,300 on a Stockport Local authority Service. This has enabled our pupils to; access cluster competitions, given our staff access to fortnightly CPD opportunities, included our school in local sporting initiatives and incentives, given us access to advice from PE specialists and helped us foster and maintain links with local sports clubs.

The remaining £1,400 pounds will be put towards an outdoor fitness equipment installation and outdoor table tennis tables (2x£500) once the next allocation of the funding is received. These purchases will further greatly enhance the opportunities for physical activity that our school can provide.



2014 – 2015 (April to April)

The grant for last year was £8,710


Continuing initiatives will be:

  • School football team and netball team
  • Continued member ship of the SSSP (Stockport School Sports Partnership) giving access to subject specialist guidance; access to competitions; two places at the Stockport Primary PE conference; support for school self evaluation and guidance for OFSTED inspection of PE
  • Support for bids and kitemark
  • Membership of SNAPSA (Stockport North Area Primary Sports Association) giving access to local area competitions
  • School swimming at Grand Central
  • Sports coach to deliver one of the two PE sessions each week


The main new initiatives will be:



Anticipated outcome

Whole school skipping day (July 2014)

To purchase a skipping rope for each child and introduce the children to skipping and the health benefits of skipping

That children will receive the benefits of a simple and healthy activity delivered by outside experts

Purchase of a PE kit for every child (July 2014)

That every child will have a kit in school each day (one of the biggest barriers to high quality PE is lack of kit and/or inappropriate kit)

That PE can be delivered to each child regardless

Swimming for Y2 (Spring 2015)

To introduce swimming for Year 2 for the spring term at Reddish Vale School Pool

That a higher percentage of children will be able to swim by the end of Year 3

Extra Sports coach to be employed at lunchtimes (Summer 2015 onwards)

To improve the uptake in intra school competitive sport and use the grounds to a greater extent

That more children will play competitive sport in school

KS1 Summer Sports Festival (July 2014)

To introduce KS1 children to competitive sport

That all Year 1 and Year 2 children will have taken sport in a competitive sports event


High Quality First Teaching of PE

We continue to use a coach from The School Sports Company to work in KS1 and KS2. The children are continuing to benefit from high quality sports education. We are a member of the Reddish Cluster Group of Schools and have used Laura Hogg, our link teacher to deliver quality gymnastics to Year 3 and Year 4. She has usefully developed the expertise of teachers in this area. It is important that we help staff improve their skill levels so that there is a sustainable legacy in this area.



All of KS1 and KS2 took part in competitive sports days. Our most promising Year 6 athletes took part in the Stockport Athletic Finals at The Manchester Indoor Athletics Arena where they obtained one first place and several second and third places. Children compete weekly in intra school sports events in both rounders and football.
