Sports Premium Funding

At Swillington Primary School we are committed to the delivery of a high quality PE and sport curriculum and to the promotion of healthy and active lifestyles. We aim to develop skills and knowledge through participation in diverse and varied physical activity and sport, as well as improving fitness and developing social skills.

In order to promote health and fitness, the government allocated £8000 (plus £5 per pupil) to all primary schools.
50% of our school’s sport premium funding has been used centrally for a coordinated vision across the Brigshaw Learning Partnership. This has been used for the following purposes:

The Funding was also used for teacher release of a Trust PE and Sport Coordinator from the High school to lead and the development of high quality PE and Sport.

The additional 50% of the funding has been used to provide one hour per week of professional sport coaching for every class.

It has also allowed us to fund an additional after school sport club for the

  • A clear identification of strengths and areas to further develop within PE.

The Games are made up of three levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, and at a county/area level.

The Games are designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.

In 2014-15, our aim was to achieve ‘Bronze School Games Award’ by Christmas and we in fact achieved the ‘Silver School Games Award’. Even better, in 2016 we received the ‘Gold School Games Award’!
