PE and Sport Premium Spend Plan 2016-2017


At Stanhope Primary we believe that a high quality and enjoyable physical education programme is a vital part of a child’s development. We aim to provide the opportunity for our children to safely experience a range of sporting activities for their fun and enjoyment. Through carefully planned PE and sports activities we aim to ensure that all children are happy and enjoy PE, thus raising participation levels both in and out of school and therefore in turn, promoting healthy lifestyles.

We strive to provide high quality PE and sports teaching in both curriculum and after school clubs. We aim to ensure that within their own level of ability all children can achieve and experience success, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential.

We value the benefits of PE and sport to build children’s self-confidence, esteem and self-worth that is character building and essential for our pupil’s development.

We aim to provide opportunities for all children to experience competition at various levels both individually and as part of a team by means of in and out of school competitions. This will hopefully inspire children to participate fully and benefit from all aspects of sport physically, emotionally and socially.

At Stanhope Primary we have welcomed the Government’s announcement to extend the Sport Premium to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils and w e are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.


Financial Statement

The government is currently providing additional funding of £150 million pounds each year to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the delivery of PE and sport in school. Each school receives £8000, plus £5 per pupil on roll (Y1-Y6) in January 2016. This year our total grant is £8860.

Using the premium the following provision for children and continuous professional development for teaching staff has been actioned.

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?

“Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.” (DfE JUNE 2013)

At Stanhope Primary we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education/Curricular PE, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant  2016- 2017 on the following:

This will ensure that all children will continue with healthy, active lifestyles during morning break and lunchtime sessions.

Supervisory Assistants: Will receive bespoke training that will result in the encouragement of healthy, active lifestyles, as well as more positive attitudes to learning in the afternoon from all children in our school community.

Identified Staff: Support PE Lead in Basketball, Athletics, Boccia and Hockey training. This is an on-going initiative.

Behaviour: Staff has observed a positive change in pupils who are participating in sports initiatives. Teamwork, sportsmanship, increased participation, perseverance, stamina, respect and tolerance for one another.

Lunchtime structured play: Due to introducing a structure to lunchtime play pupils are more regularly active and they are adopting healthier lifestyles. Therefore the portfolio of PE and sport has been raised across the school.

Staff: There is an increased confidence in knowledge and skills of the staff in Stanhope Primary and there are broader experiences of a range of sports and activities daily happening within the school.

Opportunities: The children have been given the opportunity to participate in sports, compete for school and travel to events which they otherwise would not have access to. Children in a short space of time have been selected to represent both our district (South Tyneside) and county (Tyne and Wear).
