Sports Premium Grant

The Sports Premium Grant, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, has been allocated to primary schools and is ring-fenced so schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have been given the freedom to choose how they allocate the funding.

2019 to 2020

The staff at Elvington CE Primary have decided to spend the allocation of funding as follows:

  • To increase teacher confidence in delivering high quality PE in order to strengthen teaching and learning across school.
  • Support, enthuse and engage all children in a range of physical activities.
  • Pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport in order to support teachers in delivering high quality PE.
  • Increase pupil participation in sport and physical activity throughout the school day, paying attention to those children who do not participate in any after school clubs.
  • To offer a wide range of high quality after school sports club provision in a range of sports.
  • Increase opportunities for inter-school competition.
  • Improve resources to support the delivery of physical education both in curricular and extra-curricular time.
  • To promote a healthy lifestyle. 

We ensure that improvements made are sustained and sustainable by; taking and teaching children to take good care of purchased resources; continuously building on our long term productive working relationships with sporting organisations such as Jorvik SP and York City Knights and by sharing among staff new skills, knowledge and resources from CPD through staff meetings and training.

The Sports Premium spending plan is updated throughout the year, and impact of the grant on our pupils is reviewed annually.

Planned/Committed Expenditure

Sports Premium is funded in financial years; whereas school planning is based on academic years. It is anticipated that a broadly similar grant will be allocated in the next few years. We expect to have funding for the amount £1 6000 + £1 370(£10 per pupil)=£17,370
