Provision is challenging and appropriate so children can reach their full potential
Provision is inclusive, engaging and inspiring
Provide high quality PE and Sport within the curriculum and out of school hours
Provide a broad base of learning to develop interest and understanding of a range of sports
Provide children with skills and confidence to succeed and rise to the challenge of competition and to participate competitively
Purpose of the funding:
The government is giving funding to schools for a specific purpose. Schools must spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and School Sport. Schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
What we do currently:
We provide physical activity during the school day as well as further extra curricular clubs, such as : football, running and multi-sports.
The school currently provides a minimum of 2 hour PE every week where skills are taught through PE lessons. We also offer (and continue to offer) a wide variety of sports provision after school, through our own staff and outside providers.
In our school we are using this funding by working with the Amber Valley School Sport Partnership to:
- Increase the amount of competition sport in which our children participate.
- Make links to other community sports providers.
- Develop additional clubs and activities for children, outside the curriculum.
- Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through sport.
- Give extra support in PE to our most talented children and include those with special needs in sport.
- Instill a love of being outdoors through Forest School in all children.
Lastly, we are bringing PE and sports specialist teachers and coaches into work alongside class teachers in lessons.
In this way, our children will gain new skills and experiences and teachers will develop new techniques and knowledge to aid them in teaching sport and PE.
The long term aim is higher quality lessons and improved learning for all children.
We joined Amber Valley School Sports Partnership in September 2021. For information about AVSSP please visit here.

Impact of Sport Premium
A significant proportion of children attend after school and lunch time sports clubs. We have had successes in winning Sportshall athletics and represented Erewash in the final. We have also won the Erewash Boccia tournament and took part in the County Final in 2016. We won the Erewash small school football final in 2017 and went through to the County final.
We have achieved our Gold of the Sainsbury's School Games Mark for the past 5 years and as a result have been awarded Platinum School Games Mark in 2018- one of only 3 schools in Derbyshire to have been awarded Platinum. Pupils have to completed a questionnaire, which will be used to monitor impact.
Our Key Stage 2 classes usually swim every year for 15 weeks at Victoria Leisure Centre in Ilkeston. Due to higher numbers this year, 2021-2022, Year 4, 5 & 6 will be swimming.
Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety
Please complete all of the below:
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
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?
No- our Key Stage 2 class swim for two terms every year, so no additional provision is required.
