Sport Premium


 ‘Sports Premium’ is Government funded to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.  This funding will be ring fenced and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support.  The funding is cross department funding from Department for Education, Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department of Health.



This significant funding must be spent wisely and schools will be supported to maximise the funding available to have maximum impact on the lives of young people through PE and sport.



Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism – a typical primary school with 250 pupils will received around £9,250 each year.  This is broken down into £8,000 lump sum plus a premium of £5.00 per pupil for schools with 17 or more pupils.


At Blackshaw Lane Primary & Nursery School, we are employing Sports Development to work alongside children from Nursery – Year 6.  They deliver lessons and liaise with class teachers to plan the PE Curriculum across the three terms.  This is allowing CPD for Nursery, Reception, Year 3, Year 5 and Year 6 teachers.


The Sports Development Team also work with the older children training them as Playground Leaders to take responsibility for playing with younger children and working as part of a team.


They are able to offer free after school activities which incorporate multi-skills training and team building exercises and are involved in Shaw & Royton Schools Cluster League.

2015/2016 Sports Premium Funding allocation for Blackshaw Lane Primary & Nursery School was £8,855.


With the advent of Sports Premium, the school has benefited from Sports Development work during the school day, at lunchtimes and after school.


Nursery and Reception classes receive physical development every week.  This has had an impact on the children’s levels of confidence, independence, personal and social interaction.
