Primary Sports Grant
Primary School Sports Grant Funding
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding.
This means that we must use the PE and sport premium to:
- develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides
- build capacity and capability within our school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
We should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements within 5 key indicators and measure the impact as can be seen below.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.
Due to exceptional circumstances priority should be given to ensuring that pupils can perform safe self rescue even if they do not fully meet the first two requirements of the NC programme of study
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
