Sport Premium Funding

Primary PE & School Sport Premium Online Reporting: Hunwick Primary School 2018 – 2019

Primary PE & Sport Premium Grant

At Hunwick Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sports Funding enables us to continue to extend our provision through hosting and attending more competitive sports competitions, attending and hosting sports festivals, transporting pupils to sporting events, purchasing more sports equipment and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?

The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. In February 2014 the government committed to continue the funding until 2020.

Impact of the Sport Premium

The Sports Premium has been used to support Hunwick Primary School’s pupils in numerous ways: attending competitive sports and festivals (transport), refurbishing and purchasing new equipment and introducing pupils to new sports. During the school year 2018-2019 100% of pupils took part in an inter sport activity within our schools cluster.

The subject leader monitors physical activity and sport participation both within and out of school settings. This information has been used effectively to focus the provision for after school clubs, with pupil voice shaping some new activities for the next academic year.

Assessment is used as a diagnostic tool. Activities support regular intervention for those not making expected progress. Pupils have a clear understanding of what is required to be successful at various points in the programmes they study as a result of visual assessment standards for each class/activity/assessment task. The funding has been used wisely to upskill teachers and TA’s in this area.

The strategic upskilling of teachers and other adults reflects how the subject leader recognises the needs of all involved in the delivery of physical education. Teachers and other adults are shown how to learn from coaches and specialist teachers. Sport Premium funded professional learning has improved the quality of teaching across both key stages. The establishment of a co-planning opportunity prior to each unit of support is a significant contributing factor to this. Teachers have become adept at modifying activities they have observed across different activity areas.  Careful consideration is given to how best to support the skills and knowledge of all of the staff.

The school is making significant steps towards increasing the sustainability of high-quality physical education and school sport.


It is clear that the funding is being used to enhance provision at Hunwick Primary School. These improvements are sustainable as the school is working as an effective cluster partnership who have the skills and knowledge to continue the good practice that has been established.

Swimming Assessment Year 6

Swimming data 19 - 20

Swimming data 18 - 19

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Assessment Percentages

2018 – 2019 – Percentage of the Year 6 cohort that can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


2018 – 2019 - Percentage of  the Year 6 cohort that can use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


2018 – 2019 - Percentage of Year 6 cohort that can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?


Some pupils have had additional swimming lessons in Year 3, 4 and 5 to increase confidence in the water and close the gap when aiming to reach the National Curriculum requirements.
