PE and Sport Premium

Sports Premium


Following the success of the London 2012 Olympics the government has agreed to fund primary schools for the next ten years to provide a lasting legacy from the games and develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age.


At St Martin at Shouldham Primary Academy, we recognise the contribution of PE and sport to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our Primary School PE and Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.


This means that we will use the premium to:

•develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers.

•build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. 


How to use the funding:

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2022 to 2023 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


For example, schools can use the funding to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively.
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities.
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities.
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs.
  • enter or run more sport competitions.
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs.
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school.
  • provide additional swimming provision targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum.



The amount allocated to St Martin at Shouldham Primary Academy 2022/2023 = £17,600 (paid in two lump sums)
