Sports Premium

Haydon Abbey School and Pre-School

PE and Sport Premium Grant


Primary National Curriculum for PE states that, “ a high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect”.


We ensure that PE has a very high profile in this school, enabling all children to fully participate and achieve their potential, by having an excellent team delivering the PE curriculum from Pre-School to Year 6. 


Mr Andrews is a qualified sports coach who is also training to be a primary school teacher. 


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 2018 to 2019 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

We use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer from Pre-School and Nursery through to Year 6..

We use the premium to:


  • develop and 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
  • employ qualified sports coaches/teachers to work with class 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 extending fully funded school sports clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools



The DfE states that there are five key indicators across which schools should demonstrate an improvement.


1: The engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity

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

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

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

5: Increased participation in competitive sport
