Haydon Abbey School and Pre-School

PE and Sport Premium Grant


Purpose of the Premium

The PE and Sport Premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2017 to 2018 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


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

This means that the premium should be used to:


  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


For example, the funding may be used to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools



Allocations for the academic year 2017 to 2018 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2017 census. We received £15,493 for Summer, Autumn 2017, Spring 2018.

£8158.57 funding due Summer Term 2018


The DfE provides guidance which includes the five key indicators across which schools should demonstrate an improvement.


Key indicator 1: The engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity

Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport


Reporting the PE and Sport Premium Grant

Schools should publish the amount of premium received; a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent); what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future. Schools should also consider how their use of the premium is giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle.
