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. 


Evaluation of the use of Sports Premium

Cowley St Laurence Primary School

2019 – 20

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.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Percentage of Pupils

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
