PE & Sports Premium

Primary Schools’ Sports Funding 2021-2022

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
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the sport funding on improving provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.  Possible uses for the funding include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils in after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
  • providing extra space for sports

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. See the PDF below for how the funding has been spent for the academic year 2021-2022.

Swimming - September 2021-22

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.

Swimming is usually undertaken in Year 5 at Court Lane, however Covid-19 has meant that swimming lessons were unable to take place this year.  Many swimming venues were fully booked or became vaccination/test centres, so were not offering swimming opportunities.  As a result of this, the provision for next year will hopefully be extended to both year 5 and 6, to ensure all children have had the opportunity to swim before leaving Court Lane.

Please see the PDF below for an outline of the 2021-2022 expenditure and the impact that had.
