PE and Sport Premium

Sports Premium Funding 2017/18

What is the Sport Premium Grant?

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools and this year we have received double the amount of money from last year. The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age in the school.

The Sport Premium is to be used to develop 5 key areas:

* Engage pupils in physical activity (at least 30 minutes per day)

* Raise the profile of PE as a tool for whole school improvement

* Increase knowledge, confidence and skills of staff

* Provide a wide variety of sporting experiences

* Increase participation in competition

At Crowle Primary Academy, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.

Our PE and Sport Vision
All pupils and staff were involved in creating a Vision for PE and Sports for Crowle Primary Academy and this was shared with parents and governors.
At Crowle Primary Academy we deliver PE lessons that are fair, challenging and enjoyable. Through PE we  learn a wide range of sports and skills so that we can perform well in games and competitions. We want PE to help us to get fit and to lead healthy lifestyles. Everyone should be able to take part in PE and have the chance to become a Sports Leader.

Swimming Results

This year, all schools need to report on how the school meets the national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.

These results are for the Year 6 cohort that left school in July 2017. 



% Achieved

1. What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently

over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?

69 %

2. What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example,

front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


3. What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based

situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?

100 %

4. Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for

swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?



Overall, the Academy is using the funding to develop the PE Leader and teaching staff to enhance the quality of teaching and learning. This focus has ensured a sustainable and measurable use of the Sports Premium funding, PE lessons are now delivered by more confident and competent staff who are clear of the expectations.  The purchase of new equipment and resources ensure quality PE sessions and improve the range and variety of sports on offer including inclusive sports.
Healthier lifestyles and positive attitudes to fitness, health and well-being are promoted during and after school. Children understand and experience the benefits of this and have set higher expectations of themselves in being healthier.  Competitive sport and celebration means PE and sport has a high status in school and groups of pupils including gifted and talented and SEN children have opportunities to represent the academy. Children demonstrate a good attitude to PE and Sport. Sports Leaders and Primary Ambassadors are excellent role models for behaviour and encourage physical activity which impacts on behaviour and concentration in all lessons.
The Sports Premium funding has allowed the academy to create a cultural shift.  Children starting at the academy now know they need to work hard to meet the clear objectives set in their structured, high quality PE lessons, they see that all break times are active and led by trained role models who they look up to and aspire to be like. They are keen take part in the many clubs offered outside of school and they are enthusiastic, proud and determined when given the opportunities to represent the academy.  Now the culture is in place we know it will continue for many years to come
