Ancaster Physical Education Sport Premium

Sports Pupil Premium 2017/2018

Total Allocation for 2017/18-£17,410

Every school in England receives additional sports funding through Sports Pupil Premium.

At Ancaster Church of England Primary School, we use Sports Premium funding to ensure there is a well-established and thriving sports programme. This money is used to further enhance the quality and range of experiences pupils receive. We also use this money to improve professional development and confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school. We believe that this has a long lasting and positive effect on the future learning and physical development of children within our school.


Ancaster has chosen to join a Sports Partnership of Primary and Secondary schools with a focus on increasing the quality and quantity of primary school sport. Membership of this charity, entitled Inspire + is a yearly subscription aimed at supporting schools in the Grantham area. This is the 4th Year that we have bought the services of Inspire +.

Total Budget £18000

Any money left will be spent on releasing staff to attend courses and CPD, attending inter and intra sport competitions and continuing to purchase high quality resources to aid teaching and learning of PE.

Evaluating the impact

Teachers now conduct a base line assessment of pupils at the start of each PE unit, followed by another assessment at the end of a unit, to check progress. The PE leader also collects information about the pupils’ participation in sport (e.g. after school clubs, competitions and community sports clubs) throughout the year. This data is then analysed so that provision can be put into place for any areas of need or low participation. Finally the expertise and confidence of staff in the planning and delivery of PE is evaluated through observations and questionnaires. This will be evaluated on a yearly basis and inform future action plans.

Expected Outcomes

Increased expertise and confidence for staff in the planning and delivery of PE, judged through staff questionnaires.

Increased participation rates of our pupils in after school clubs, competitions and community sports clubs.

Higher quality of impact within physical education judged through lesson observations and the assessment of pupils’ progress against the national curriculum.
