Sports Premium

Sports Pupil Premium

At Harestock Primary school we understand the value of Sport and PE and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to take part in regular sport, including competitions both in school and against other schools.

At Harestock Primary school we believe that PE and Sport build self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills. We believe that PE and sport are also important because they help build an inclusive society, raise levels of participation in sport after young people leave school and positively affect the health of the nation. PE and sport provision at Harestock enables the school to take part in the ‘School Games Mark’ which is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Harestock was validated again at Silver level Active Mark for the year 2016-17.

Harestock Primary school Sports premium is to: 

  • Improve the teaching and learning of all aspects of PE
  • Improve the resources and equipment used in PE Lessons
  • Offer a wider range of opportunities in PE and extra-curricular clubs
  • Develop the use of our school grounds for outdoor and adventurous PE
  • Develop links with community groups and other agencies.
  • Improve the PE skills and stamina of pupils and improve their fitness


In 2013 the government announced that they would be spending £450 million over the next three academic years to help fund primary school sport, this is called the School Sport Premium. The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. 

Schools have the freedom to spend the money however they choose, but this must be towards improving their provision of PE and Sport to give children the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle. The funding is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged children as recorded in the annual census in January each year.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools
