Sports Premium

Bream C of E Primary School Sports Premium

What is the ‘Sports Premium’?

At Bream C of E Primary School, physical education and outdoor learning are given a high profile. The school has always recognised the benefits of a strong Physical Education curriculum and extra-curricular activity on raising children’s aspirations and self-esteem.

Physical Education is also clearly a key ingredient in the battle against childhood obesity and encouraging young people to live active and healthy lives. It was for this reason that the government announced in March 2013 that all primary schools would receive a grant known as the ‘Sports Premium.’

PE at Bream C of E Primary School

At Bream, we believe it is every child’s right to access Physical Education and that this right is just as important as any other curriculum subject. With this in mind, the PE co-ordinator carried out a review of our current PE facilities, curriculum and extra-curricular activity to plan the best use of the Sports Premium allocated to Bream Primary School.

We decided that the school needed to go back to basics, ensuring that first and foremost we develop young people’s basic fundamental skills. These skills form the building blocks which underpin the learning of more complicated sport and movement. If children can master these skills they are more likely to be involved in sport and physical activity for a life time.

To ensure that this happens we have entered into partnership with  a sports provider, an organisation which provides quality first PE teaching to schools. The aim of the partnership is to develop our own class teachers’ PE teaching skills by working alongside the coach from a sports provider, develop the children’s own skills in PE, to encourage participation in sports outside of the school day and to promote healthy lifestyles. The partnership has also enabled us to develop a wider range of after school clubs and to enable that extra sessions of PE are available for children with identified physical disabilities or problems.

Sports Premium 2017-2018

The Sports Premium for 2017-18 was £16,000 and had been used to buy in a coach from Progressive Sports for the whole school. The coaching focused on gymnastics, dance and keeping healthy as well as building upon batting and ball skills taught in the previous two years. This enabled the children to understand the importance of keeping their bodies healthy, the impact this would have on their health in general, attendance at school and overall well-being. The variety of sporting activities offered through the coach encouraged some children to attend clubs outside of school including hockey, rugby, football and gymnastics. 


Staff engaged with the lessons which formed part of their CPD and in the second sessions of PE each week they consolidated pupil learning. The children were able to consolidate skills learnt and apply them in different ways demonstrating the impact of both the coach on their learning and the CPD gained by the staff.

The sports provider also provided a whole school planning document showing progression across the school in all the different disciplines being covered thus enabling the quality of provision to be sustained. 

Through the school’s/church’s Family Support Worker, links are being established with a local Christian Adventure Centre in order to promote self-esteem and resilience for our pupils and their families.

Sports Premium Action Plan April 2018 – April 2019

The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
