The Use and Impact of Sports Premium 2015/2016 and 2016/2017


The Government had continued to provide additional funding to Primary schools in order to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport.

Vision: All pupils leaving Primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Pocklington C.E.V.C. Infant School


All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per Key Stage One pupil.

For the academic year Sept 2014 – August 2015 (based on 111 Key Stage One pupils) we received an amount of £8555.00 (see Sports Premium Budget Information)

For September 2015 to August 2016 we will have a sum of £8652.36

For September 2016 to August 2017 we will have the sum of approximately £8625

How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding:

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all pupils and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and to enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.

We have undertaken a PE and School Sport audit and are continuing to develop our Sports Premium plan to raise standards and afterschool participation levels. Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, is that it must be used so that:

• all children benefit regardless of sporting ability (this includes Foundation Stage children)

• children are given the opportunity to compete/participate in appropriate interschool events with other schools when possible

• staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development

• some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints e.g. after school clubs

• we make use of collaborative and partnership working e.g. we are members of the local School Sports Partnership

 With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, our initial plans for the use of the Sports Premium funding include:

 • Investment in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport for years to come. This will include providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport and working with qualified coaches.

• Continued membership of the Local Cluster School Sport Partnership including Youth Sport Trust Primary membership.

• Setting up and running at least one new after school sports club

• Supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional sports clubs.

• Increasing the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate (suitable for Key stage One)

• Continuing to take part in local sports competitions/events (if appropriate for Key Stage One) organised by the local School Sport Partnership, during the years 2014/2015/2016/2017.

• Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules e.g. Dance.

• Making links to other community sports providers – encouraging pupils to join out of school sports clubs.-e.g. Kilnwick Percy Golf Club, Pocklington Tennis club

• Developing intra-school competitions and promoting sporting values.

• Developing the outdoor and adventurous activities element of the PE curriculum, utilising the school’s own grounds and facilities.

• Purchasing equipment to offer access to new sports and physical activities as relevant.


We will continue to evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The Government’s Childhood Obesity Strategy suggests that “Primary Schools help every child to get 30 of the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise a day in school time. It is suggested that PE, active break times and afterschool clubs can promote activity at school.”

Our School will continue to use the School Sports Premium to support this.

A Celebration of Health and Fitness during 2016 /2017







Throughout 2016 and 2017 the pupils and staff at Pocklington Infant School enjoyed taking part in a range of fun activities that promoted healthy lifestyles.


We have continued to broaden the range of physical activities offered to all our pupils.

P.E. Lessons included fitness, dance, and gymnastics with apparatus, multi skill games sessions, badminton, rugby and athletics.

Teachers worked alongside qualified coaches throughout the year.

Teachers and children have also worked with PE specialists form Woldgate School. This year they had rugby sessions led by a rugby specialist.

Clubs included dance, health and fitness club, golf, multi skills, gymnastics, three in a bucket and tennis.

School events included Healthy Schools Week, walk, scoot and cycle to school week, and a Fun Boot Camp. Our annual Fun Fit and Sports Afternoon involved the whole school taking part in a range of races and fitness activities in aid of the NSPCC.A huge thank you for your support.


We have been working hard to promote cycling, walking and scooting to school with initiatives including Santa and Smoothie scoot to school and balance bike training.


Well done to our teachers Mrs Moore and Mrs Stanforth who took part in a schools 60 mile cycle challenge that called at schools in the East Riding to promote cycling.


Active play times and lunchtimes continue to be an important part of our school day as we encourage the children to use our fitness trail and tyre park and to play with games equipment. We were able to purchase some new games equipment with our collection of Sainsbury’s vouchers.

We have also had coach led games session every Monday lunchtimes to encourage our active 30 minutes a day.


 Our plans for 2017/2018

We are looking forward to continuing to develop exciting and varied P.E lessons and after school clubs and we aim to promote health and fitness through activity and enjoyment.

Here are some of our plans:


  • We are now employing a specialist P.E. teacher Mrs Cheshire to work with teachers and staff on a weekly basis. This will enhance links with literacy and numeracy and allow teachers to access an increased range of resources and planning. 
  • We will be providing regular yoga sessions for all children to enhance physical and mental wellbeing. “Tattybumpkin” Yoga Company will be in delivering sessions on a weekly basis.



  • We will continue to provide a variety of clubs throughout the year which will include golf, dance, running and three in a bucket. 
  • We will encourage children to take part in the active 30 minutes a day through active playtimes and whole school initiates including cycling, scooting and walking events.


  • Staff will be accessing CPD development form a Primary PE specialist to develop Active literacy and Active numeracy teaching.
