Sports Premium

Sports Premium Report 2020/21


What is the Sports Premium?

The Department of Education have provided schools with additional funding to help ensure that:

‘All pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’


It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles.
  2. The profile of PE and Sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sports.
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.


In 2017 the government announced an increase in the funding allocated to schools which stands at £16,000 plus £10 per pupil per year.  Much of this funding was raised through the levy imposed on the soft drinks industry.

Financial Year





How does the school decide what to spend the grant on?

At Lordship Lane we are strongly committed to PE. This is evident in the wide range of activities in and out of school that we offer, including involvement in competitive sports. We have a number of specialist staff who support us in offering high quality PE provision. We recognise the importance of PE to the health and well-being of our children and the impact that the PE curriculum and extracurricular activities can have on the attitudes, confidence and academic achievement of all children.
