PE and Sport Premium

Funding for PE and sport

St. Mary’s receives extra funding specifically for improving the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in our school. This funding has been allocated by HM Government since September 2013 as a legacy to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In 2014 it was announced that HM Government would continue the funding of the PE and sport premium until 2020. This has now been extended until 2021.


Purpose and allocation of the premium

At St. Mary’s we are using our PE and sport premium to improve the quality of PE and sport provision in the following ways:

  • Hiring a professional sports coach to teach the children different sports during curriculum time and during after school clubs
  • Procuring quality assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and Sport through the Youth Sports Trust
  • Supporting regular sports tournaments, festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages
  • Entering children into different leagues and competitions organised by the Putney Primary Sports Association (PPSA) and Wandsworth Sports Development
  • Accessing specialist coaches for taster days
  • Investing in a scheme of work that motivates and inspires our children in the progression of key skills
  • Purchasing new equipment for the school so that the children can develop their skills further in PE lessons
  • Purchasing new equipment to improve the variety of after-school clubs available
  • Purchasing more sports equipment for use during playtimes
  • Enhancing the extra-curricular provision for targeted pupils
  • Supporting parents by covering additional costs to ensure ALL children have access to a wider range of sporting/PE opportunities
  • To ensure access to quality PE provision for children with disabilities
