Sports Premium Funding


Our sports premium grant is used to great effect to provide a high quality of PE provision in school. The attached reports outline the key areas that we use the funding for and the impact that this is having.


Each child undertakes 2 hours of PE each week. There are lessons in gymnastics, dance, games, athletics and swimming.  There is a well-equipped hall with a variety of agility and gymnastic apparatus.  Children take part in competitive sport against other schools and we enter several tournaments each year.


The major emphasis of our physical education programme is to allow the children to acquire and use skills and strength in appropriate activities. We aim to show children that physical education is challenging in an individual and a collective situation and that they can find success at their own level.


We promote sport and personal fitness as an important part of staying healthy. There are opportunities for physical activity every day. 


At Cranbrook Primary School, we believe that the purpose of the Sports Premium is:

  • To ensure that children benefit from high quality Physical Education as part of the school curriculum and that staff benefit from continuing professional development;
  • To provide opportunities for competitive school sport for all children who wish to take part;
  • To encourage children to take part in School Sports and PE;
  • To identify, enthuse and engage with children and families who are less likely to choose sports and exercise as a lifestyle choice;
  • To increase the number of children who take part in after-school sports clubs by offering a wider range of activities;
  • To work in partnership with other organisations and school to maximise the potential of School Sports and PE.


Our Monitoring Impact and Ensuring Sustainability:

The impact of the funding will be reviewed annually in July. To ensure improvements are sustainable, the PE subject leader will receive additional training in the role of the use of this funding, and professional development for staff will be used to ensure expertise are developed so we are not reliant on specialist sports coaches.

 Comment from Ofsted report (April, 2017)

"Effective use of the primary physical education and sport premium has increased pupils’ involvement in sports, both in school and in local sports tournaments. Physical education coaches have worked alongside teachers to improve their teaching and this has made sure that the difference made by the additional funds is sustainable"
