Primary PE & Sport Premium - Objectives:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport against 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport

How has Court Lane Junior spent the PE and Sport Premium Funding and what is the impact?

At Court lane Junior, we believe that the money must be used so that all children benefit, regardless of sporting ability. Please see the PDF below for how the funding has been spent for the academic year 2022-2023.


From 2017, there has been a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. Please see the PDF below for swimming statistics for our Year 6 cohort.
