Sports Premium Funding


At Chew Magna Primary School, we continue to develop our Physical Education programme and, with the support of Government funding, we have the capacity to do so. We endeavour to give our children opportunities to experience different sporting challenges as they move through the school, and to develop their talents in appropriate competitive formats.


The Government’s commitment to provide new funding for Primary PE and Sport means that we can now look to further develop and enhance the experience of our children in this area. In the academic year 2017-18, the funding entitles our school to £16,000, plus an additional £10 per pupil aged 5 or over (at the time of the census in the January of each academic year.) This means that we will receive £16,930 to further develop PE and sport in our school.


Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding is that it must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools; staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development including working with specialist teachers/qualified sports coaches; subsidising some activities so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints.   


During the academic year 2016-17, we received £8,460 in Sports Premium Funding to develop PE and Sport in our school We used the funding to:-




Continue to pay to be part of the School Sports Partnership.

 The school will be monitoring both the physical development and engagement levels of pupils through observation and an assessment system. The school offers a wide range of after school sports clubs and we will be closely monitoring the attendance to ensure maximum take-up. The school will continue to maximise opportunities for both in-school and out-of-school competitions. The results will be shared via the website and our school newsletter. Teachers will report on their professional development needs and developing confidence in the teaching of PE and Sports.
