PE and sport premium

Sport Premium Allocation 2016-17

At Foxhills Infant School, we recognise that the impact of a well-rounded PE curriculum to the health and well-being of every child at our school. We believe that engaging and diverse PE teaching can have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all the children in our school.


Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our highly successful provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is currently continuing to provide funding for primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil (year 1 and 2).


The premium should be used to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sports activities that the school already offers.
  • Make improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.


Possible uses of the funding include:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage 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

For the academic year 2016/17, Foxhills Infant School will receive £8,865. This allocation of funding will be spent in the following ways:
