Great Bradfords Junior School

P.E and Sports Premium Spending and Action Plan



At Great Bradfords Junior school we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. We support our children to ensure that they leave Great Bradfords Junior School physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


Sports Premium

The Sports Premium was introduced in April 2013 and is a sum of money allocated to schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. For this academic year (September 2019 – 2020) the sum allocated is calculated based on the number of pupils on roll at the time of allocation (352). The total Sport Premium grant received by the school this financial year is £16,000 + £10 per pupil (352), totalling £19,520.

The grant will be used to:

  • Employ a specialist PE coach to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE
  • Pay external sports coaches to run competitions, or to increase pupils’ participation in national school games competitions
  • Buy into the North Essex Multi-Academy Trust
  • Provide extra, additional equipment to ensure that the PE curriculum can be taught effectively
  • Transport children to more inclusive sporting opportunities and competitions and release teachers to accompany the children
  • Access further specialist coaching through the School Games Organiser, for example cricket


Aims: To meet the Sports Premium Criteria

  • Children improve their physical and mental health through regular active PE sessions.
  • There is increased participation in competition and extra-curricular sport
  • Children understand what contributes towards a healthy, active lifestyle.
  • There are high quality, active P.E. lessons where children make progress, raise their pulse rate and develop new skills.
  • There is a clear progression in skills acquired in P.E. through the school.
  • Pupils are aware of their strengths and their next steps.

                                                                                                                                                                                    Total Spend………£19,520………………


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

Every pupil will have two weekly P.E. lessons taken by the class teacher. For the pupils in year 4 and 5, one of lessons for one term will be a swimming lesson delivered by qualified swimming instructors at Braintree Swimming Pool. Along with this every pupil will have the opportunity to participate in the annual School Games Day and various intra-school sports competitions.  Last year (2018-2019) sixty children in Year 6 achieved their level 5 and above in swimming. Level 5 is the proficient 25m swimming in a variety of strokes.

Through the local School Sports Partnership (SSP), the school successfully takes part in level 1, level 2 and level 3 competitions. The school employs the services of a Professional Sports Coach to enhance the variety of extracurricular activities available for the children, which include boys and girls football, tag rugby, netball, dance, cheerleading, cross country, cricket, rounders and summer athletics. The school is inclusive of all children’s needs and also runs fine and gross multi-skills interventions, and a Change for Life club known as ‘Active8’, which is part of the curriculum. In addition to this, the school is part of the ‘Great Bradfords Mile’ scheme – very similar to ‘The Daily Mile’. The ‘Great Bradfords Mile’ is an excellent opportunity for all pupils to participate in an active sport, according to their own ability and skill, during the school day. Talented sporting children are also signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills.

Impact of Funding

The impact of the Sports Premium Funding is evaluated as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We look at how well we use our Sport Premium Funding to improve the quality of P.E and sporting provision, including increasing participation in P.E. and sport so that all children develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. The improvements that have already been made are sustainable as they are now embedded within the curriculum and through ongoing professional development for the staff (as required) from both internal experts and external providers. Provided the school budget can sustain the range of after-school clubs, these will also continue for as long as possible.
