Sports Premium

Hatch Warren Junior School

Primary Sports Funding Allocation – updated 22nd October 2020

What is the Primary ‘Sport Premium’?

The primary ‘sport premium’ funding for primary schools has been designed to help schools in a variety of ways. Some of the outcomes we aim to achieve through the ‘sport premium’ funding are:

  • Increased opportunities for competitive sport in school
  • Increased access to quality of sporting resources and sports equipment
  • Improved quality of teaching and learning in Primary Physical Education, including more dynamic exercise in lessons
  • Improvements in the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including “increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances levels of which they are capable”

Objectives in spending Sport Premium Grant

Higher standards in PE lessons throughout school.

  • All staff to be confident and competent to use a range of learning styles in PE
  • All lessons in PE to be judged as good or outstanding through internal observations
  • All pupils to further develop their skills in each PE lesson/unit
  • Children to be more confident to try new activities and have the opportunity to do so through the school’s offer
  • Children are engaged and motivated to be physically active
  • Children have access to a variety of stimulating resources which encourage them to participate in physical activity during the day
  • Children will want to sustain activity after leaving primary school



Spending of Sport Premium Grant in September 2019- August 2020

Sports hall equipment amendments (removal of old rope frame and repair of existing frame in hall)


Purchase of additional lunchtime sports equipment


PE INSET day May 2019 for all teaching staff with a focus on gymnastics


Sports coaches employed during lunchtime (Sept – March)


Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport / sporting competitions outside of school (Autumn and Spring only)


Cost of providing four after school sports clubs every evening  through ‘Debs Academy’ in Autumn and some of Spring terms 2019-2020


PE lead courses - staff Training


Cost of coaches to and from swimming baths for swimming lessons (NB did not happen this year due to Covid shutdown )



  • The amount of expenditure for the year was not as high as expected with less sporting activities in school requiring staff cover


  • Swimming outcomes –


As part of the PE curriculum children are expected to be able to swim 25m unaided by the time they leave junior school. The children in year six had the opportunity to complete 10 swimming sessions when they were in year 5. The outcomes for year 6 (September 2016 – July 2020) are as follows.

Number of children in the year group

Number of children who are able to swim 25m unaided






The swimming sessions which were due to take place this year in year 4 were cancelled as the swimming pool was closed due to Covid 19. The children will hopefully be able to complete their swimming sessions in year 5 this year, once the swimming pool re-opens.  If not the opportunity to swim will need to take place in year 6 for that year group

How we will make sure these improvements are sustained?

As a school we will ensure that the children will continue to access high quality provision in PE by developing the expertise of the teaching staff through on the job training and through the use of specialised and teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons. We will continue to invest in our staff through appropriate external and internal training and continue to provide various opportunities for the children to access a range of after school clubs into the future. We will continue to promote the importance of physical fitness through the use of the daily mile on school. This year we hope to be able to re-introduce a variety of after school sports clubs once again, when Covid restrictions are lifted.
