Expenditure Reports

Action Plan

Background - 2017-2018 information update coming shortly

MORE than half-a-million pounds is to be invested in sport at primary schools in North Lincolnshire. The money has been ring-fenced by the Government for school sport and will be divided among primary schools in lump sums. All schools with 17 or more primary-age pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000, plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive a sum of £500 per pupil. The money for North Lincolnshire totals £543,900. It forms part of a £150-million Olympic legacy fund to improve the quality of sport provision in every state primary school in the country. And the funding has been welcomed by head teachers in the region. The sport premium cash can only be spent on sport provision in schools.

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.
