Hatch Warren Junior School

Primary Sports Funding Allocation

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

• 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”

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
  • All pupils to make progress in each lesson/ unit/ year
  • 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 will want to sustain activity after leaving primary school
  • Ideas from new materials to be shared staff in order for resources to be sustainable
  • Provision of better sports facilities for children to use in school to inspire greater sports participation



Spending  of Sport Premium Grant in 2018-2019 – Spends for the financial year April 2018- April 2019

Premier sports coaching / employing  two sports leads 5 days a week   (lunchtimes)


Sports Equipment


Lunchtime sports equipment


Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport / sporting competitions outside of school


Cost of providing  four after school sports clubs every evening  through ‘Debs Academy’ in Autumn, Spring and Summer terms


Cost of coaches to and from swimming baths for swimming lessons


The amount of expenditure for the year was not as high as expected as the planned multi-use games area was not completed and paid for until the new financial year. 

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 2015 – July 2019) are as follows.

Number of children in the year group

Number of children who are able to swim 25m unaided





For the first time this year (2019) the decision was made to change the swimming sessions to year 4 so that any children who were unable to swim at least 25 meters by the end of year 4 would have the opportunity to complete swimming sessions for a second time when they were in year five. This happened in the Spring term 2019 for the 15 children (18%) who had not managed to complete the required distance when in year 4. The school will repeat the process again for children in year 5 in the Summer 2020.


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 varied opportunities for the children to access a range of after school clubs into the future. We will also look at making timetable adjustments to enable pupils to maximise their learning / development in certain areas of PE through special weeks s with a PE focus
