Sports Funding Allocation

Primary School PE and Sport Funding
What is it?

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

How much school sports funding does Bishop Lonsdale Primary School receive?

Bishop Lonsdale received £8,815 for 2016/17 and £18,000 for 2017/18. After careful consideration by the Governing Body it was decided that the money is to be used as outlined above:-
What do we spend the additional funding on at Bishop Lonsdale Primary School?


  • To develop staff expertise and confidence from Year 1 to Year 6 in delivering the PE curriculum.
  • To develop dance provision for our Reception and Year 1 Pupils through the use of an external specialist.
  • To provide staff training in assessment of all aspects of physical education through the PEDPASS scheme.
  • To fund a range of after school activities.
  • To provide any necessary resources to enhance and develop the above.


What impact does the sports premium funding have?

Ensuring that staff have the training, capability, confidence and understanding to deliver the curriculum in a safe and well structure manner.
To ensure assessment for all aspects of physical education is secure and pupils who underachieve or excel are identified quickly and needs are addressed.
To ensure that children enter school in our reception class with a common range of skills from a range of different providers and that baseline data for physical education is secure.
To ensure all pupils leave our school with the minimum requirement of swimming standard.
