Sports Premium Funding

Government Sports Grant

The Government is providing additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and Sport in Primary Schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. It must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE across the school and particularly, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. 

This year Cowley St Laurence have retained the Silver School Games Mark. This is in recognition of :

Increasing Engagement In School Games

Provide all students with two hours of Physical Education, school sport and physical activity per week (made up of curricular and extra curriculum activity) – applicable to years 3 -11 only.

Engage at least 35% of pupils (10% for special schools/PRUs) in extracurricular sporting and physical activity every week – applicable to years 3-11 only.

• Over the course of the academic year, have targeted provision for those least active young people in your school and a minimum take up of at least 10% from those identified as least active at the start of the academic year. This take up needs to be sustained over a term – applicable to years 3-11 only. Please see guidance document for a clear working example.

Developing Competitive Opportunities

Use the School Games formats to provide the opportunity for both boys and girls to take part in age and stage appropriate level of competition.

Below you will find a document with our evaluation for 2022-2023

This is how we plan to use the funding for the year 2023 - 2024:

  • Develop the PE curriculum further to ensure that all children have a strong knowledge of PE as well as skills
  • Hiring specialist sports coaches to work with teachers to increase their subject knowledge.
  • Providing places for pupils on after-school sports clubs, such as tennis, gymnastics and many more.
  • Further develop the lunchtime provision through the use of the Sports Leaders.
  • Develop playground equipment to provide further oppoutunies for pupils to take part in physical activitiy.
