Physical Education


Sports Premium Grant (SPG) 2022/2023

The Primary PE and Sports Premium began in the academic year 2013 to 2014 when the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools in England.

This funding is allocated to primary school head-teacher. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools

 At Swinton Queen Primary, we are committed to using these funds to provide good quality PE sessions, wider opportunities for children and CPD for staff.  We are working alongside high-quality Sports providers to upskill our staff and facilitate effective PE lessons.

The Purpose of the Sports Premium Grant

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality

 of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport you offer.

This means that school should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that 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 can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity- the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole- school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport 

 Typical Impact from the PE and Sports Premium Funding

  • 100% of children in Years 1 to Y6 have the opportunity to participate in PE and Sports related activities run by Kixx staff at lunchtime.
  • A range of different PE extra-curricular clubs offered this year from Y1 to Y6
  • Over 100 children attend an extra-curricular sports club this year.
  • Children have the opportunity to take part in an inter school sports competition or festival. 

Schools are also required to publish information on the percentage of pupils within the year 6 cohort in the 2019 to 2020 academic year who met the following national curriculum requirements in swimming:

National Curriculum Objective                                                                                      % of Y6 children achieving this objective at Swinton Queen Primary                                                                                                                                            

·         swim competently, confidently and proficiently                                                  85%

           Over a distance of 25 metres.


·         use a range of strokes effectively                                                                         81%


·         perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations                           65%


How are we building sustainable improvement?

  • We are looking to further develop our relationship with specialist sports coaches which will offer the children a wide range of different sporting opportunities and offer continuous professional development to staff so they can continue to deliver these sports.
  • We are looking to compete in more intra- and inter- school competitions in a wider range of sporting events.
