Sports Premium

What is Sports Premium?


In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

As of 2017-18, the sport Premium has doubled and Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.


Schools can use funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools


Schools should not use their funding to:

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of their core staffing budgets.
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum).


How will we at Cranham account for this funding?

We will publish a statement of income, spend, impact and sustainability annually. The use of the premium will be managed by PE Co-ordinators, the finance administrator and overseen by the Headteacher. This information will also be shared with school governors and parents. Take a look at our PE and Sport Premium Documents to see how we have utilised the premium so far to vastly improve PE and Sport at Cranham.



Sports Premium Funding 2019-20

Sports funding 2018/19

We have been fortunate enough to keep the same sports funding as last year. This means that the school will receive £1600 plus £10 per pupil. Having successfully had our running track installed, we will be using sports funding to pay the final cost of installation. After our most successful year ever in sporting terms, we will be continuing to fund a wide range of after school clubs to enable as many as possible of our pupils to engage in extra curricular activity. The government strategy to make each child's day as active as possible is central to our sports funding spending this year. As well as using the running track before and after school, pupils will be encouraged to run before or after lessons. We are also looking into using money to invest in "active" maths programmes, especially those which will help pupils who struggle with confidence in these subjects. Money will be invested in helping our Cranham Crew to deliver high quality assistance across the school. Pupils will be involved in deciding how best the money can be used to make a positive difference to all. 

As this year draws to a close it has been the most successful year ever for us in terms of sporting achievement with us winning 4 trophies having never won a single one in the past 20 years. We have also taken more children than ever to sporting and inclusive events and pupils have had the opportunity to compete in a large variety of activities. Our After-school Clubs have shown greater attendance and pupils have maintained their attendance throughout the year. When questioned pupils say they are "proud to represent Cranham" and that they "enjoy the different opportunities" to do active clubs at lunchtimes and after school. The great success of our girls, both in football and netball, has meant that girls are now more likely to associate joining clubs with success.  The exemplary behaviour of our pupils (OFSTED 2019) is partly down to the active school day which we encourage throughout the school.

Teachers are being trained up on this programme and will be able to continue it in future years. Once established they will be able to further train other members of staff to run the programme with different groups of pupils as required.


Sports Funding 2017/18

This year the government has doubled the PE and sport premium, giving each school £16000 plus £10 per pupil. The money is to be used to benefit all pupils but schools are able to use their discretion on how the money is spent. At Cranham we want as much of the money as possible to directly benefit the pupils. For this reason we are using a large part of the money to expand the availability of out of school hour clubs so that as many pupils as possible can attend. We are also dedicating a lump of money towards the building of a running track around the junior playground. This will be sustainable and be used by all pupils. A smaller percentage of money will be put towards transport for pupils to enable them to go to competitions when parents cannot provide lifts. ( We are extremely grateful to those parents who do help us whenever they can.) We will also spend small amounts on relevant staff training and on new equipment for PE.

Sports Funding Statement 2016/17

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150million per annum for the academic years 2013/4 and 2014/5 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport an dPE for all their children.

Each school will receive £8000 plus and extra £5 per pupil each year for the next 2 years . The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.

Purpose of the funding

All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Cranham we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that providing an innovative and varied PE curriculum and a range of extra-curricular opportunities  will have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all pupils, as well as introducing them to life-long interests.
