Sport funding

The government provides additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. The Primary PE and Sport Premium is used to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the 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

Schools are required to publish details of how they spend this funding as well as on the impact it has on pupils’ PE and Sport participation and attainment.


In 2018/2019 we have spent the money as follows:

£19,805.40 (96%) on Staff Development, either through working alongside coaches or attendance of professional courses.

£562.36 (3%) on equipment for our playground leaders to ensure that children are given the opportunity to be more active during playtime.

£246.00 (1%) on transport to get the children to competitions and events. 

We are also using coaches to assess and work alongside teachers to help engage those children that have low participation levels or activity levels. In addition to this we ran Energize and Sparx Clubs to target these children.


Next academic year, we are expecting to spend a further £17,425  on CPD and coaching, 85% of our sports premium money for 2019/2020.

We are also hoping to use some of our sports premium money to provide booster sessions for children that have not met the national curriculum requirements of swimming 25 metres. 


Below is a table to show how many of our current Year 6 cohort are meeting the requirements for swimming.


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below*:

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

No, but this is something that we intend to do in the future; this is the second year we have had Year 6 children so we are working towards ensuring all children can swim by having swimming lessons in Year 4 too. This will  supplement those that were already occurring in Year 2 prior to the Year 6 children staying at the school.

At Woodland Grange we run a large number of clubs in a variety of different sports. Participation rates are always very high and children are encouraged to get involved.

We are also very keen to take advantage of the many sporting competitions organised across Leicestershire, including:

  •  Basketball
  • Tag Rugby
  • Athletics
  • Tennis
  • Football (mixed and girls only)
  • Cross Country
  • Cyclocross 
  • Gymnastics
  • Netball
  • Dodgeball

All of our children relish the opportunity to represent us in competitions and there is always a wonderful, positive team spirit.

We also entered some of our pupils with additional needs into inclusive sporting competitions as well as supporting pupils who have low participation or activity levels. We are using coaches to assess and work alongside these children.

Positive Playgrounds

We currently have a School Sports Organising Committee (SSOC) that runs activities at lunch times several times a week including intra-school competitions.

The SSOC have also undertaken Level 1 Playmaker training as organised by our local School Sports Partnership (SSP).

They also lend out equipment each lunchtime to enable our children to be as active as possible.
