King Edward Primary and Nursery School

 Primary School Sport Funding 2019- 2020 (Reviewed: July 2020)


The Government are providing extra funding to primary schools to enhance the quality and provision of physical education and school sport.


Our school objective is: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school

  2. The profile of PESSPA 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


Our school is proud of our good sporting reputation, the wide range of extra-curricular activities we provide for our children and the ways by which we encourage them to adopt a healthy lifestyle. However, we welcome the extra funding which will enable us to do even better.


Our Vision is - That all our pupils leave primary school 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.


Our estimated total funding allocation for 2019-2020: £19,570
