Spring Bank Primary School

PE and Sports Premium

Spring Bank Primary Sports Premium Plan 2018 -19  

PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of Spring Bank Primary School We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.

At Spring Bank we have developed a provision plan to ensure this funding is invested (rather than ‘spent’) to maximise the long term impact of our PE provision for pupils and staff. The funding is invested in various ways and the impact of these initiatives is closely monitored through assessment of children’s skills, something our teachers assess at the end of each term. We also gather staff and pupil feedback and track uptake of clubs to ensure very good provision. Our PE coordinator has written an Improvement Plan for PE with a focus on the assessment and progress of children in PE.


Following our audit of the impact of our Sports Premium in 2017 – 2018 (see summary at the bottom of this document) we plan to use our Sports Premium monies in 2018 – 2019 in the following ways:


Enhance the outdoor exercise and agility provision for our Reception class by installing outdoor climbing equipment:

  • Extension of Reception play area by moving fence back and re-landscaping
  • Installing climbing equipment in Reception area – this has now been installed and we are just waiting for the ground to be completed.


Ensure children have access to a wide variety of sports experiences through:

  • Continuing free after school sports clubs with after school club co-ordinator support in dance, football, cricket, gymnastics, cross country running, basketball and rugby
  • Continue our successful Health and Sports week with visiting coaches.
  • Purchase of coaching sessions at Yorkshire Indoor Cricket School for  KS2 children
  • Bikeability coaching.


Improve provision for sports and fitness opportunities at playtimes through:

  • Introduce daily activity as part of the 60 minutes of exercise initiative. This will done either through the daily mile or other routines.


Improve already good outcomes of PE teaching across school identified in our PE subject report by:

  • Release of PE co-ordinator to observe PE lessons, identifying strengths and areas for improvement and survey of staff skills.
  • Staff training provided to support identified areas for improvement.
  • Provide release time for PE co-ordinator to plan Health and Sports week, oversee daily physical education (daily mile etc), co-ordinate with coaches and students at universities to provide after school clubs in different sports, plan and oversee school teams taking part in a variety of sports competitions.
  • Continue new swimming assessments for Y4 and payment for an additional swimming coach at the poolside. To also produce a report in July 2019 on the progress of children in Year 6 with their swimming and their achievements.

Impact of Sports Premium Grant from 2017/2018


The impact of the Sports Premium Grant was positive for the school again. Investment in the Reception Outdoor active area has resulted in the construction of equipment. Hopefully the area will be complete for the Spring or Summer term. Pupils were able to access a variety of sports through after school clubs and the football clubs for Year 1 and Year 2 were popular and successful. 61% of the Year 6 cohort were able to swim 25m when they went swimming in Year 4. Recommendations were given to parents of children who required more lessons outside of school when they were in Year 4. Health and Sports Week ran successfully as did the Bikeability training and the sessions at the Headingley Indoor Cricket School.  

The school will be undertaking the My Health My School survey (for years 3, 4, 5 and 6) and using this to inform additional use of the Sports Premium funding in the new year (January 2019)
