P.E. and Sports Funding

PE & Sport Premium

PE & Sport Premium is funding provided to primary schools to enhance the provision of PE and sport. The Government has committed to keeping the funding in place until 2020. It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent. 

Principles for allocating the funding

To ensure that our PE & Sport Premium is spent in the most effective ways the following principles have been agreed:

  • Provide high quality PE teaching delivered by a specialist Sports Teacher
  • Extend our range of school sports clubs
  • Develop pupil sport leaders who take an active part in decision making
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games Programme
  • Run sports activities with partnership schools
  • Undertake monitoring and analysis to identify pupils who do not participate in sporting activities beyond the school day, and provide support and encouragement to enrol them in an activity of their choice.
  • Monitoring and evaluation to demonstrate the impact of spending on the outcomes for pupils.

PE and School Sport Premium 2016 - 17

In order to increase the participation and achievement of primary school children in sport and PE, the departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport have invested £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is allocated directly to each individual school and is ‘ring fenced’ so it can only be spent on enhancing the Physical Education and sports provision in schools. 

Eastway is in receipt of the following funding:

September 2016 to March 2017



April 2017 to August 2017




2016 – 2017 Academic Year Total



Eastway Primary School has chosen to spend PE and School Sports Premium in the following ways:

  1. Employment of a specialist sports coach for sport provision

Eastway has employed a qualified sports coach to raise attainment in PE, boost the quality and range of after school clubs offered and promote active fair play at playtimes.


The clubs offered this year have included netball, multi-skills, athletics, tri-golf as well as a variety of football clubs.  All of these clubs have been provided at no cost to the children and across both Key Stages.  Children at Eastway work towards gaining credits for the Children’s University.  This incentive and the range of quality clubs has increased participation considerably.


The employment of a sports coach has given us the ability to provide structured, competitive sports activities with every break and lunchtime. 

The sports coach is also utilised effectively in KS2, F1 and F2 PE lessons. Alongside the class teacher, the children have access to more specialist coaching and feedback on their developing physical education.

Contribution to the employment of Sports Coach 

Cost: £4580

2.      Claremount Specialist Sports college SLA

The SLA provides a qualified PE teacher to lead PE lessons across KS1 and KS2 for half a day per week for half a term. Working with the specialist PE teacher provides excellent CPD for staff, including Eastway’s own sports coach. The SLA also provides termly CPD opportunities for all staff and cluster competition events for children.

Claremount staff will also support Eastway to achieve the School Games Kitemark and the Association for Physical Education Quality Mark.


Cost: £3750

3.      Contribution towards Y6 Outdoor and Adventurous Residential (OAA)  

Funding allows the cost of Kingswood Colomendy residential to be available at a reduced price which ensures all the children can participate in the outdoor education it provides.  All Year 6 pupils are able to visit Colomendy for 3 days and 2 nights at the beginning of their final year. This is an incredibly enriching social experience for those involved as well as offering the opportunity to participate in n outdoor and adventurous activity challenges individually and as a team.  This adventurous activity is one of main focuses for the new National Curriculum, which became statutory in schools in September 2014. Cost: £500
