Sports Premium

In October 2017, the Government announced that they had doubled the Primary School PE and Sport Premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. The funding would enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer.

In the following video clip, Ali Oliver (CEO at Youth Sport Trust) explains the recent changes to the Primary PE and School Sport Premium and how to maximise its effectiveness on schools.                                                                                                                                            


How the PE and sport premium can be used

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

This means that they should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that their school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within their school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

Sports Premium Report 2019-2020

Hibaldstow Academy has been allocated £17,190 in the form of the School Sport Premium. This is made up of £16000 plus £10 for every child on roll. The money is paid to schools in 2 instalments in the Autumn and Spring Terms. The money is designated to be used to increase the breadth and quality of PE and Sport provision and in increasing participation and attainment in PE and Sport.

The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.

How will the Sports Premium Grant be spent?

  •     All pupils from Years 2-6 will have 8 weeks of swimming tuition at Vale of Ancholme Leisure Centre.
  •     We buy into the North Lincolnshire Sports Partnership. This gives our pupils access to inter school competitions and sports ambassador training. It also gives staff access to training to develop their teaching skills.
  •     We also work closely with a specialist PE teacher from a local school.
  •     We have a designated member of staff to co-ordinate PE in school and some of the grant is to fund release time for her to do this and to attend sporting competitions with children.
  •     Specialist Coaches will lead sporting activities after school and in school. These include Rocketball, Dance and Basketball.

Impact of the Sports Premium Grant

This is the first year of this funding, so we will need to measure the impact of it as the year goes on. We would expect the impact to be:

  •     Increased opportunities for all of our pupils to access a wider variety of PE and Sports.
  •     Opportunity to develop the competitive element of sports and the skills of sportsmanship.
  •     Increased opportunities for our pupils with sporting talents to train and compete with pupils with similar skills.
  •     Developed pupil understanding of the importance of keeping fit and healthy and ways that they can improve their health and fitness.
  •     Pupils who are fitter, healthier and are motivated to continue to improve.

The use of the Sports Premium Grant is monitored and reviewed by Directors at their termly meetings.
