What is it?
The Government has committed funding for Primary PE and Sport to 2020, with £750m to be invested over the course of the next parliament. Each year, Primary schools will receive an allocation of the funding to be used to enhance the provision for PE and School Sport.
Purpose of funding
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, schools have the freedom to choose how they do this.

We will receive £9875 (plus £1552 carry forward) from the Government and will continue to build on the improvements to our provision for PE and Sport.
£2850 will be spent on our affiliation fee to the Slough Sports Network (SSN).
This will enable our pupils to benefit from entering inter-school competitions in sports such as sportshall athletics, football, rugby and cricket.
Our affiliation will also provide us with links to: NGB established clubs and organisations to run programmes during and after school hours such as London Irish Rugby and health programmes such as ‘Let’s Get Going’
Our staff and volunteers will also be able to access CPD and NGB sports courses enabling them to improve the quality of our lessons and after school sessions.
£2000 will be spent on the coaching programme offered by the Slough Sport Network, which provides 72 hours of coaching to our pupils from Level 2 (or higher) qualified coaches. Our pupils will benefit from a wide range of sports including multi-skills, dance, football, netball, golf, tennis.
Each phase (yr 1&2, 3&4, 5&6) has the opportunity to attend a minimum of two clubs per week and we schedule our clubs to coincide with the SSN competitions calendar providing pupils sports specific coaching leading up to competitions.
£1850 in the summer term will be spent on teaching our year 5 pupils swimming and water safety at the local pool in Langley. Qualified swimming instructors from the pool will follow the guidance in the National Curriculum with the aim of the pupils achieving the KS2 target for pupils to swim 20 metres.
The remaining funds will be targeted at improving our break and lunch time provision and getting our pupils engaged in structured activities with a competition/challenge theme which will include specialist staff and resources.
