Sports Premium


The Government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games which were held in London. In order to achieve this and improve the provision of PE and sport in Primary schools, additional funding has been made available and in our school this amounted to £5416 for 2013/14, £8601 for 2014/15, £8851 for 2015/16 and £8863 for 2016/17.

At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School we believe that sport plays an important part as it contributes to the health and wellbeing of our children. Sporting excellence and participation, alongside strong cultural opportunities, go hand in hand with academic standards.

The Governors and Headteacher are committed to developing sport and opportunities to participate in competitive events for our children. In order to support this in 2013 the Governors agreed to an annual allocation from the school budget and Sports Premium to be dedicated to the hiring of a school minibus.


This resource has had a massive impact on the amount of competitions we are able to enter and also the development of skills of our children. (See table of achievements below).

PE Curriculum

A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aim to engage and inspire all children. We are also committed to ensure that all children in KS2 receive at least 2 hours per week of high quality, well-planned Physical Education.

Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastics lessons. All children from Reception to Y6 receive a weekly swimming lesson. Our aim is that all children leave our school at the end of Year 6 able to swim 25 metres, therefore non-swimmers are given additional swimming lessons.

All Year 4, 5 and  6 children have the opportunity to participate in a week’s residential holiday which includes outdoor adventurous activities.

The Wider Curriculum

PE and Sport has a high profile in our school and permeates many aspects of school life.

Throughout the year we hold theme weeks such as ‘Health and Wellbeing’ week, where children participate in a wide range of activities and have a ‘taster’ session of a sport or activity that otherwise they may never have tried.

Classes have the opportunity to take part in structured play activities at lunchtime including football, bat and ball skills, skipping, trim trail and our outdoor activity play area.

During our residential visits, children are given opportunity to participate in many different activities which may include assault courses and abseiling, fencing, archery and kayaking.

In the summer term we also hold our annual Sports Days in which we encourage participation of all children and organise competitive races.

Talented children are signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills

Beyond the School Day

The school is keen to provide a wide range of extra – curricular clubs for children throughout the year which are organised by our teaching staff and/or sports coaches.

Children enjoy the opportunity to work with different teachers and have the chance to try many sports such as Netball, Dance, Cross Country, Football and Multi-skills.

Athletics, Handball and Volleyball.

We try to cater for all our children’s needs and ask the children which clubs they would like to see included during the year; we also monitor participation and check uptake against gender, Children’s University Tracker and Pupil Premium children.

We enter competitions and encourage children to participate in team sport. Please refer to the ‘Extra Curricular’ page on our website for more details of the extra curricular activities on offer.

Primary school experiences are pivotal to the children’s future perception of physical activity and we believe that children leave our school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. For those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their chosen level and discipline.

St Anne’s is supported by the local School Sports Partnership which has facilitated training for staff and assisted us in putting together bids for play equipment and enhancing our provision for sport.


Sports Premium 2015/2016

At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.


Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?


The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

For the academic year 2015-2016 each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years – here at St Anne’s that will mean around £9,000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


Purpose of the funding


Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


Possible uses of the funding include:


  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs
