Sport & Sport Funding

Sport & Sport Funding

At Gainsborough we want every child to be healthy and fit and have the opportunity to participate in sport and PE so that they are physically confident. This is achieved through positive teaching and learning experiences at all levels and for all children. 

PE and sport is led by the PE subject leader and supported by all members of staff.  Our PE lessons cover all areas of the National curriculum, including; games, gymnastics, dance, outdoor activities and athletics.


PE and Sport Premium

PE and Sport Premium for Primary schools Statement Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil = £19,550

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities to offer their pupils, but are free to choose the best way of using the money.


Examples of how to use the funding:


ï‚· - hire specialist PE teachers

ï‚· - hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

ï‚· - provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport

ï‚· - support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs

ï‚· - run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

ï‚· - run sports activities with other schools.
