Sports Premium Report 2022/23


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.

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 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.


 How do we spend the money and what effect is it having?

Swimming report:


Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. In accordance with the National Curriculum, schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2.

The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. 



Due to the pandemic there is no Y6 Swimming Assessment data  for 2021/22
