Inspiring Autonomy and Excellence.



This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is received directly by our school and will be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all our pupils. 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. 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 2018 – August 2019 Sherwood Park School will receive an amount of £16,380. This funding is ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on the provision of 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 this Sports Premium to continue and boost our already extensive Sports provision, through further enhancement of our PE curriculum and our Extended Schools provision. 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 provide funding for: 

  • A Dance coach through ‘Radiate’ for Lunch time and curriculum Dance sessions
  • A Crystal Palace Football in the Community coach
  • Our After School Sports Club
  • Our After School Dance Club
  • Our Lunchtime Panathlon Club
  • Cycling and Eco- Cycling sessions

The DfE Guidance including the 5 key indicators will assist us to demonstrate an improvement


We aim to:

Ensure that and increase the number of pupils that engage in regular physical activity (Key        Indicator 1 

  • Eg Enable access to adapted bikes and maintain the bicycles to ensure that they are used more regularly at playtimes and in PE lessons by pupils

Raise the profile of PE and Sport across the school (Key Indicator 2)

  • Provide an annual Thematic day based on ‘Sports Activities’ and an all inclusive Sports Day

Increased confidence, knowledge and skills in all staff in teaching PE and sport (Key Indicator 3)

  • Increase the provision of and the staffing, to enable more pupils to attend our Extended Schools provision of After School: Sports and Dance Club

Broader range of sports and activities offered to all pupils (Key indicator 4)

  • 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
  • Increase the provision of PMLD Dance sessions in curriculum time
  • Continue to subsidise our After School sporting activities to ensure that they are accessible and affordable for all our pupils

Increased participation in competitive sport (Key Indicator 5)

  • Expand our Panathlon Club to include Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils which will enable more pupils to participate in Panathlon Challenge Competitions thus increasing participation in competitive sport
  • Provide Panathlon training sessions for Key Stage 2 pupils and enable pupils to participate in Panathlon Challenge Competitions resulting in an increased participation in competitive sport


We will measure the impact/effect of the activities provided through Sports Premium funding by:

  • Monitoring the numbers of pupils involved in Sporting activities at Lunchtime and After school clubs
  • Monitoring the number of pupils that participate in sporting competitions and their achievements, this will be evident from the number of awards/certificates and medals pupils win and qualifications for regional and national events
  • Monitoring each pupil’s progress in their ‘Physical’ Personalized Learning Programme Targets
  • Looking at P level % progress in PE and other areas , such as PSHE eg self-esteem and self – confidence at the end of the academic year
  • Gaining feedback from school staff and external coaches

Year 6 Swimming competency statement

Pupils at Sherwood Park School continue to work towards developing their confidence, and proficiency at swimming at least 25 metres in the pool.  So far none of our Year 6 pupils can swim 25 metres, use a range of strokes or perform safe and self-rescue in different water based situations. This is a result of their developmental and physical delay.
