Sports Funding at Chalgrove Primary School


What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing substantial primary school sports funding. This funding is being jointly provided be the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to schools to spend on improving sports and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


Purpose of Funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers whilst they are teaching PE
  • New Change4Life sport club, run by our school Sports Ambassadors and an adult
  • Funding professional development opportunities in PE/Sports
  • Providing cover to release teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions and increasing participation in the school partnership events
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs


How the impact will be measured

The impact of sport and PE in school will be measured in many ways, some of which will be:


  • Observations
  • Assessments 
  • Pupil Surveys
  • Staff Surveys
  • Training Evaluation
  • School council feedback
  • Sports ambassador feedback
  • Sports club attendance registers
  • Tracking vulnerable pupil attendance

All pupils have recently taken part in class skipping workshops to improve their skills! We have bought some new ropes so that children can practice at break and lunchtimes - we are hoping to see a lot more skipping outside and improved physical fitness!

Paralympic footballer, Alistair Patrick Heselton, visited us as part of the Sport for Schools programme to inspire our pupils to take up sport. Most importantly though, pupils learnt never to give up on their dreams and the importance of resilience!
