PE & Sport Premium
The government provides funding jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, to see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Wellington Primary School received £9,825 in the 2016/17 academic year and will receive £19,600 in the 2017/18 academic year.
At Wellington Primary School, we recognise the significant contribution of PE to the health and well-being of all children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
All pupils leaving Wellington Primary School will be physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport at Wellington Primary School.
We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
- The profile of PE and sport being 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.

Impact of the premium at Wellington Primary School
The impact of the premium on PE and sport at Wellington Primary School has continued to be extremely positive in the 2016/2017 academic year.
The evidence for this is as follows:
- Observations of PE lessons were graded as good or better.
- Quality of planning, resources and curriculum have all improved.
- Pupil progress and outcomes have significantly improved.
- There has been a significant increase in the number of high quality extra-curricular sports clubs provided to pupils.
- There has been an increase in the number of inter and intra-school competitions.
- Many of these clubs have led to sporting success through participation in inter-school competitions.
- The raised status of PE and sport has had a huge impact on the school house system and children’s sense of belonging.
At Wellington Primary, we are committed to further improving our sports provision and as such, will be continuing to monitor the impact this premium has in our school very closely during the 2017/2018 academic year.
