PE Premium

PE Premium at Unstone Junior School

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education and sport in education. This funding has been allocated to allow schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

Funding was allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1st September 2013.

A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.


The following areas for development are being targeted:
Staff training and subject knowledge
Specialist sport coaches to deliver aspects of P.E. throughout school
Access to festivals and competitive events

Increase activity at play times and improve pupils mental well-being
We aim to meet these target areas by:
Working effectively in partnership with other schools, external agencies and the local community
Improving the quality and breadth of PE provision
Promoting participation in sport and a healthy lifestyle

Carrying out an equipment audit and purchasing new equipment
Giving pupils the opportunity to achieve their sporting potential
Sports Premium money has been spent on:


  • invested in a Specialist Coach to deliver multi sports activities during the school day.
  • mentoring for the PE coordinator and teachers
  • improving the playground including playground markings, equipment for active play
  • specialist coaches for after school activities
  • access to cluster events (including transport)
  • subsidising sports clubs
  • subsidised outward bound residential visits for the children in years 5 and 6


We have further opportunities to investigate additional activities as we still have an amount of
funding to allocate.
