PE and Sport Premium Funding


Our aim for PE at St Mary’s C of E Infant School


We aim for all pupils leaving Prestbury St Mary’s Federation to be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

All children in KS1 are provided with 2 hours of curriculum PE time a week, plus opportunities to engage in extra-curricular PE and sport. Children in Reception receive 1 hour of focused PE teaching but have numerous opportunities to engage in physical activities within our outside area and playground. In addition to this, we encourage active playtimes and active lunchtimes to ensure every child is getting their recommended 60 minutes of activity per day.


What is Sports Premium Funding?


Sports Premium Funding is a Government initiative that aims to enhance and improve the provision of PE and to increase the activity levels of children in primary schools.


How will we use the Primary Sports Premium Funding in 2017-18?


For the academic year 2017/18, St Mary’s C of E Infant School will receive £13, 616 of Sports Premium Funding. Our action plan of how we will spend the money can be found as a separate document on this page. Our plan focuses on improving the following five areas:


  • Build the profile of PE and keeping fit
  • Develop pupils gross motor control in Reception
  • Provide more CPD training for staff
  • Develop pupils Fundamental Movement Skills through the use of computing devices
  • Continue to audit afterschool sports participation

The funding for 2017-18 has been allocated accordingly:



School Sports Network

Staff training and cluster festival inter-school


Cleeve Cluster

Staff training and cluster festival inter-school


District Sports

Year 2 CPD in gymnastics for a 12 week block

Balanceability through School Sports Network

Balanceability is the UK's first accredited 'learn to cycle' programme that aims to get children learning to ride a bike through the development of balance and control.

£328.82 £25.80

iPad and adapter

A PE iPad was purchased after a peripatetic teacher used it within most PE sessions as an assessment tool through the app Coaches Eye. The app enables children to review techniques demonstrated by both themselves and others.


The impact of these measures will be reviewed during the academic year to ensure they represent value for money and to evaluate their role in improving the achievement of pupils. When deciding on any actions we look at the sustainability of the improvements.



At the end of 2017/2018 there will be £11,617 carried forward in order that the school can purchase a play fort that would enable  children to be active during all playtimes.
