Sports Premium

We must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer.

This means that we should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport


For the academic year 2018/19 we will receive 17,120


We intend to utilise this money in the following way:

  • Buying into the Premium service level agreement with Gateshead Council.
  • Providing opportunities for all children to participate in a local sports festival.
  • Developing a program of out of school activities to encourage all children to take part.
  • Setting up regular intra-school competition for the pupils.
  • Employing regular dance specialist teachers to deliver quality dance sessions to all pupils throughout the year.
  • Employing specialist coaches in sports that the children have asked for in our school survey.
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport.
  • Providing cover to release teachers and teaching assistants for professional development in PE and sport.
  • Enabling us to maintain our School Games Gold award status with a view to moving towards Platinum status.
  • Working closely alongside Newcastle United Foundation to offer specialist teaching and coaching in school. For more details of this work please click this link: https://nufoundation.org.uk/


The impact of this provision will be monitored throughout the year by the Headteacher and PE co-ordinator. Details of the work that is going on in school can be found in the detailed action plans and reports below.
