Primary PE ( Physical Education) Sports Funding


Academic Year 2020-2021


The Government has announced extra sports funding to enhance PE and sports provision in all primary schools. Its aim is to improve the quality of PE teaching and learning and to elevate the profile of sports within schools so that more children are doing more sport. We are excited and feel privileged to be able to spend the allocated funding to help fulfil our vision statement for sport at North West.


Sport Premium 2020/2021: £18,010.00

Sports Premium carried forward from Year 2019/2020- £5,030.82



The school has worked hard to ensure that all classes have sessions of PE this academic year. As well as this (COVID-19 dependant) each class has had swimming sessions and across an academic year each child has a 6 week block of swimming. Staff have worked with and team taught with the coaches as part of CPD for staff. We have also trained up staff to teach swimming especially to the EYFS. There was an 8 week block where staff taught PE without a coach using their skills to promote the subject.

HOW DID WE SPEND THE MONEY IN 2020- 2021 Academic Year?

TEACHING and STAFF DEVELOPMENT: We appointed sports coaches to work alongside staff as part of CPD to develop their own teaching of PE as well as provide children with expert teaching in the field of Sports. We also appointed a Swimming Teacher for the older years used money to train the EYFS staff in pool safety and swimming so that these classes can swim once a week. The coaches have also started to develop an assessment system to continue using in the next academic year so that progress can be measured.
