Sports Premium

What is it? 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. 

At Somerby Primary we use sports premium to: 

 develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers 

 make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years 


How much do we receive? 

Somerby Primary school received £8100 per year in instalments.  

What is the funding used for? 

In order to enhance opportunities for our pupils at Somerby Primary School we spend the funding on:-


 hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers 

 providing existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

 introducing new sports or activities and encouraging 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 

How is the impact measured? 

At the end of each academic year an analysis of spend takes place. This analysis measures the impact of the funding through: 

  • Pupil Voice
  • Participation in extra curricular events
  • Participation in a wide variety of sports
  • Progress and attainment in other subjects due to confidence and self esteem developed through sport
  • Quality of teaching and learning in PE through CPD development
