Primary PE and Sport Premium Report 2013-2014

Primary PE and Sport Premium

At Frederick Holmes School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding until 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

Sport Premium Grant

Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £7,535 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £475 per pupil.

Total amount of grant received for 2013/2014


What does the Sport Premium mean for our School?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013). At Frederick Holmes School we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:

Physical Education

Raising the standard of teaching and learning in PE

What are we going to do?

How are we going to do it?

Frederick Holmes School have decided to use this money to purchase bicycles suitable for all pupils.

Each class will be able to access these bikes as part of their PE curriculum and extra-curriculum activities. Using adapted bicycles opens another avenue of accessible physical education for our pupils who have complex physical disabilities.

Healthy Active Lifestyles

Ensuring all children are encouraged to take regular exercise

What are we going to do?

How are we going to do it?

We plan to increase physical activity and participation from all pupils inside and out of curriculum time.

Each class will receive a timetabled slot to use the bikes. The pupils will also be able to access these on a lunchtime and at after school clubs.

Competitive School Sport

Increase participation levels in extra curricular sport

What are we going to do?

How are we going to do it?

To increase and develop the amount of competitive sport opportunities for pupils by developing games which involve the use of bicycles.

The school will build partnerships with other schools and hopefully contribute to the local School Sports Partnership / SGO competition calendar.
