Background - 2017-2018

In October 2017, the Government announced that they had doubled the Primary School PE and Sport Premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. The funding would enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer.

In the following video clip, Ali Oliver (CEO at Youth Sport Trust) explains the recent changes to the Primary PE and School Sport Premium and how to maximise its effectiveness on schools.                                                                                                                                            


How the PE and sport premium can be used

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that they should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that their school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within their school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

Sport Premium

Evidencing Impact, Accountability and Sustainability (2016-2017)

This year, we received £8845 and channelled this directly into continuing and further developing the high level of sport and PE throughout the school. Below is a shortened version of the breakdown of how the funding was spent and an insight into how it may be spent next year (Click here to view full Expenditure Report 2016-2017).

Focus 1-

Increased participation in competitive sport


  • Continue to buy into the N. Lincs School Sports Partnership Gold package
  • Use PE co-ordinator, PEST’s (PE support team) and other staff to organise intra competitions
  • Enter competitions in various sports therefore giving children a broad experience
  • Offer transport to and from competitions in School minibuses
  • Continue strong links with clubs in the community


This year, with the help of the school games organiser and the SSco, we have entered a wide-variety of competitions which has resulted in continued participation of children (see full report for a more detailed account of what children have been involved in).

Last year, Scawby Academy was proud to have secured a ‘GOLD’ Sports Mark Award in the Sainsbury’s School Games external accreditation scheme. We were proud to be the only school in N.Lincs to have achieved this for four consecutive years and are hoping to apply for the new ‘Platinum’ Award this year.

Focus 2-

The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement


  • Celebrate participation and successes during assemblies, through tweets, on the website, in newsletters, on sports board etc.
  • Maintain quality of PE teaching and have high expectations for pupils of all abilities and aptitudes
  • Use of PE questionnaire  in Y1 and Y5


Specialist coaches were brought in to teach a variety of clubs both before and after school: circus skills, fencing, invasion games, football, orienteering and badminton. All children were encouraged to attend despite their ability. This resulted in a higher than normal level of participation from more reluctant pupils.

Focus 3-

The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity--kick-starting healthy active lifestyles


  • At least 2 hours of weekly PE lessons with additional outdoor/active learning encouraged
  • Continued provision for swimming lessons from Y2-Y6       
  • Inter-house competitions held at least termly
  • Varied breakfast/after school clubs provided throughout the year encouraging children to be active for longer periods of time


Swimming lessons continued for all children from Y2-6 with the view to it being an important life skill. We believe the decision to send children year on year has helped them to become more confident, competent and proficient in the water.

Focus 4-

Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils


  • Provide extra-curricular sports clubs run by either coaches/staff
  • Offer all children in Y4 and Y6 opportunity to attend OAA residential


More pupils have been offered places in clubs than last year. Continued access to a wide variety of level 1 sports through cluster group has meant more children have had the opportunity to participate. Entering more than one team in events has also allowed more participation and success in level 2 and 3

Focus 5-

Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport


  • Staff CPD and support from PE co-ordinator


The new LTP and assessment are up and running and will be monitored throughout the year. It is hoped that as a result, there will be a more consistent and progressive approach to the teaching of PE across the school.
