The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Sherwood Park School 2016/2017



Background: The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for secondary, primary and special schools. This allocation of funding is to provide new, substantial school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The Government has agreed to this funding due to concerns regarding childhood obesity and lack of exercise.

Allocation: All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum. For the academic year Sept 2016 – August 2017 Sherwood Park School will receive an amount of £8,000 plus £5.00 per pupil. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.

How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding:

As well as promoting good health, the government states that school sport has an important role in building “confidence and a sense of achievement” both of which we see as important for our pupils.

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all. We intend to use Sports Premium to continue and boost our already extensive Sports provision, through further enhancement of the PE curriculum and our Extended Schools. This will help to ensure that our pupils are given every opportunity to be healthy, confident and with support, take part in a range of sports thus raising participation and achievement for all. 

It will enable the school to:

Continue the funding for: 

  • ‘Step into Dance’ with a visiting Dance coach,
  • Swimming off site for our more able swimmers at Waddon Leisure Centre
  • A Crystal Palace Football in the Community coach
  • After School Basketball club
  • After School Dance Club

We aim to:

  • Increase the provision of and the staffing, to enable more pupils to attend our Extended Schools provision of After School: Basketball, Street Dance and PMLD dance sessions in curriculum time.
  • Continue to subsidise these After School activities to ensure that they are accessible and affordable for all our pupils
  • Provide trampolining sessions
  • Expand Panathlon Club to Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils
  • Provide Panathlon training sessions for Key Stage 2 pupils.
  • Provide our PMLD pupils with a greater range of physical activities including cycling, bowling and other activities that these pupils do not always have the opportunity to access.
  • Provide a Thematic day in the Summer term based on ‘Sports Activities’
  • Maintain the bicycles to ensure that they are used more regularly at playtimes and in PE lessons by pupils.
  • Provide a Sports day.
  • Increase PE/Physio therapy equipment for PMLD pupils
  • To support training for trampolining training.


Measuring the impact of the activities provided with Sports Premium funding can be achieved in different ways.

We will look at pupil progress in PE (by looking at P level progress termly) as well as other areas of development such as PSHE for example self-esteem and confidence.

We will monitor the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school.

We will gain feedback from staff, visitors and coaches

We will ensure that pupils participate in an extensive range of disability sport competitions and achieve their full potential, this will be evident from the number of awards/certificates and medals pupils win and qualifications for regional and national events
