Sport Premium Overview

The government has provided additional funding since 2013 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The government has continued to commit to the sports’ premium funding for 2021-2022. 


Next Review Date July 2022


The Sports Premium Grant (SPG) is government funding to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of all primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Its aim is to:

  • Develop or add to the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) activities that the school already offers
  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

The government has outlined 5 key indicators against which the impact of the grant will be monitored. These are:

  • Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school
  • Key indicator 2: The profile of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport

The government has committed to the sports’ premium funding again in 2021-2022.


Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic (March 2019-March 2020) 263 out a possible 478 pupils (Y1-Y6) have had opportunities to represent the school at sports events:

  • London Champions: Athletics 2019
  • London Silver medallists: Tag Rugby 2019
  • Borough Champions: Athletics, Tag Rugby (KS2 and KS1) and boys Kwik cricket 2019.
  • Borough Champions: Girls' Football 2020 (London Youth Games cancelled due to Covid-19)

External provision by Next Step Sport (NSSport): multi skills, boys and girls football, yoga, gymnastics, dodgeball. Tag rugby and cricket clubs are also offered.

Teachers deliver hockey, netball and running clubs.

NSSport who provide our sports' coaching, after school sports' clubs and activity holiday camps were graded "outstanding" for their childcare provision at their inspection in October 2017. Since  September 2018, NSSport have also provided the wrap-around care at school.

Inter-school events were cancelled March 2020-June 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Inter-house competitions took place in year-group bubbles. Outdoor sports clubs continued where permitted.

The school will continue to participate in all borough tournaments and every opportunity will be taken to extend competitive sports to all year groups from Y1-Y6, once these are allowed again.   Inter house tournaments take place termly to ensure all children enjoy team competition. Our Running Club is now so popular that additional year group lunchtime clubs have also started.

The “Phoenix Mile”, which is part of the daily mile initiative where children run a route around the school on a regular basis, has improved fitness levels and raised activity further. Every child took part in the London mini marathon in September 2020.


The school received a grant of £20,790 and carried forward £7,370.

Due to school closure during the lockdown and safety restrictions, some of the grant was not spent again. Competitive inter-school sports could not take place due to Covid-19.  The government has permitted schools to carry the grant over into the next academic year.
