Sports Premium Funding Report 2015-2016

Last academic year (2015/16) St. Mary’s received £9,620 for PE funding.

This money was spent on the following:

·       £1100 – Inflatable assault course for a start of year PE Day. All children were physically active and the day was used to inspire a love of learning through PE.

·       £1000 – New football goalposts for the playground – Improving the equipment and the area in which the children play on a daily basis.

·       £1500 – New equipment – Improving PE provision and the equipment which the children have the opportunity to use.

·       £400 – Golf Lessons – Pupil premium children received golf lessons paid for by the school – encouraging children to participate in a sport which can be exclusive due to financial reasons.

·       £600 – Tickets and transport to watch an international Netball fixture between England and Australia – inspiring a love of sport through attendance. Providing some children with their first experience of live sport.

·       £3200 – Sports specialist – Organised intra-academy events. Increased participation – all children involved in whole school events. CPD opportunities were provided for staff.

·       £500 - Prizes for PE Day events e.g. Indoor sports day, Euro 2016 inter-house tournament

·       £500 transport to fixtures – increased the number of level 2 or 3 events attended to 25.

·       £600 – Archery specialist – children were provided with lessons in Archery – opportunity to experience a new sport. The school went on to win the Newcastle Cup and a Year 4 child from our school won ‘Best at the event.’ (He had never tried Archery previously).

·       £100 – Shin pads and socks – purchased for children who didn’t own any/couldn’t afford to buy them prior to a sports fixture.

·       £100 – New PE kit for pupil premium children who required it.

·       All of the above helped raise standards and participation across the school. In recognition of this fact, St. Mary’s have been awarded with the Silver Kitemark award. This is awarded to schools who meet the necessary criteria in terms of provision and participation. More information regarding this is available under the ‘Silver Kitemark’ tab.




As well as increasing participation across the whole school, it was also a great year in terms of results. This was no doubt helped by some of the coaching and specialist support paid for by the funding.
