    PE and Sport Premium


    Thrupp Primary School Sports Premium Statement 2017/2018

    What is the Sport Premium?

    In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of 150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport often referred to as a Sport Premium. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.

    Current Provision

    We successfully hold the Gold School Games Award which we received in July 2017 which recognises our commitment to school PE.

    We are proud of the current PE curriculum provision at our school and of the wealth of extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for our pupils. Sporting Clubs include; Dance, Football, Cricket, Rounders, Hockey, Cross Country, Tag Rugby, Athletics, Tennis, Multi Skills and Netball. We also run a Young Leaders program for our Year 6 pupils who lead activities at lunchtime for our EYFS/KS1/KS2 pupils.

    Intra-school competitions also feature in our school sporting calendar including Football, Tag Rugby, Netball Hockey and Tennis as well as our yearly KS1 and KS2 Sports Days. In addition to this we attend competitions organised by the Stroud Area Schools Sports Partnership as well as School Games Events and our catchment secondary school sports events. We compete and organise annual cluster sporting events with 6 other local small Stroud Schools.

    Use of Sports Premium 2017 - 2018

    In 2017/ 2018 Thrupp School was awarded £17,080.00 from the Government.

    There are 5 key indicators from the DFE which we are looking to address when allocating our funds from the sports premium:

    1. The engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity
    2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
    3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
    4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
    5. Increased participation in competitive sport

    These are detailed in our evidence of impact document 2017/2018.

    Thrupp Primary School Sports Premium Action Plan 2017/2018

    PE Funding 2016-2017


    At Thrupp Primary School, we will be receiving around £8500 this year.


    Our plans for improving our provision:

    At Thrupp School we are constantly reviewing our provision and looking for ways to further improve. We are strong in the area of PE and our children are given a wide range of opportunities both within and outside of curriculum time. We monitor participation in extra-curricular clubs and competitions, review pupil progress and assess individual needs, as well as evaluate our curriculum.


    As a result, we have the following plans for the PE funding:


    Objective Actions Impact

    Continue to improve the quality of teaching of PE, providing opportunities for CPD




    Use Superstars to support in KS2 to allow teaching of PE in ability groups so as to extend and support

    Use Superstars and PE specialist within school to provide CPD in KS2

    PE specialist to teach PE in Foundation Stage and KS1



    Increased participation and enjoyment from all children


    Increased staff confidence leading to higher quality lessons

    PE taught at a high standard within Foundation Stage and KS1

    Increase participation rates of children




    Offer a wider selection of clubs based on what the children request (School Council) 

    Children confident to try a new activity


    High level of success and motivation 

    Participation of children not previously selected therefore high level of self esteem

    Increase the competitive element of PE at KS2



    Arranging more inter school competition 

    Participate in an increased number of sporting events and matches within the Stroud area


    More matches and tournaments entered across Yr 3-6 allowing more opportunities for children to compete competitively 

    See % sheet

    Ensure all children can swim 25m by the end of KS2




    12 weeks swimming for all those unable to swim 25m on front and back (Take children form Yr 2-6)

    All Children on leaving Yr 6 will be able to swim required distance hence meeting the government recommendations

    For the 3rd year we have succeeded in this target

    Update our dance scheme




    Invite S Shaw ( Dance Consultant)  in to work with us to update our dance scheme allowing maximum opportunities for creative dance for all year groups Produce a lively dance scheme that matches our topics and allows all staff the confidence to teach at a high level


    There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. Furthermore, sport also provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.


    In April 2013, the Government announced new funding (Sport Premium) for physical education (PE) and sport to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at School. The allocation for Thrupp School in 2016-2017 is £8610. We are using the Sport Premium to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision in a variety of ways, for example, employing a specialist sports teacher, providing more after school sports clubs and opportunities for children to take part in competitive sport.


    For more detailed information about how we used the funding in 2015-2016, please see document below.
