PE and Well-Being is One of Our School’s Curriculum Focus

At New Village, PE is one of our key curriculum drivers. We think that if children are going to learn and thrive and meet their potential then they need to have fit and healthy bodies and minds.

All children at our school receive at least 2 hours of PE each week. They are able to learn skills, take part in tournaments, experience new sports or activities and take part in after-school sports activities. We use specialist sports coached to deliver some of our PE curriculum so that your children receive the very best that is on offer.
In Year 5, the children attend swimming lessons at Adwick Leisure Centre. Therefore, they will be in receipt of more than the normal 2 hours PE time.

PE Sports Premium

We have an allocation of funding from the Government, each year, to spend on developing sports in our school. We monitor the impact of the spending and report to the Governing Board and to Ofsted.

Funding for the PE and Sport Premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2017 school census.

If you are a new school or a school teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2017 to 2018, we will base your funding on data from the autumn 2017 school census.

How to Use the PE and Sport Premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.


This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

For example, schools can use their funding to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • enter or run more sport competitions
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
  • provide additional swimming provision targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum
  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching

Schools should not use your funding to:

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of your core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)

We Have Used the Sports Premium to

  • make sure that children have access to competitions
  • enrich the PE curriculum with resources and alternative sporting experiences (gold, archery, kurling)
  • funding after school clubs
  • funded holiday clubs
  • funded sports weeks

After School Clubs

At New Village we offer a range of after school clubs which are open to KS1 and KS2 pupils. The theme of the club varies across the year so as to offer a wide range of sporting experiences. All our after school clubs are free – the costs are subsidised by the school through the Sports Premium or through the Pupil Premium
