Sports Premium


Impact of Sports Premium for 2015-2016 academic year

PE and sport play a very important part in the life of our school.  We believe that Physical Education and Sports contributes to the holistic development of children and, through participation in sport and PE, young people learn more about key values such as so-operation, teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.
There is a significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise not just on children's physical health, but also on academic achievement.  Furthermore, sport provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.
In the summer of 2013, the Government announced new funding (Sports Premium) to increase the breadth and depth of provision within PE and school sport. This has continued for the 2015-2016 academic year where Lake View Primary School has received £8,680 for the year.


During 2015-2016 we have used the Sports Premium to further improve the quality of our PE provision and extend the opportunities and experiences for our pupils.  We have therefore used the Sports Premium to:

  • Increase participation rates in interesting and different sorts of after school sports club including mini kicks, yoga and Bollywood dance.
  • Allow pupils to take part in competitive experiences by attending football and netball competitions.
  • Allow all children to take part in sports festivals during every primary school year from Year 1 to Year 6.
  • Children have had access to weekly specialist PE sessions at Joseph Whitaker to give them a wider experience of different sports.
  • Every week Year 6 children have received weekly PE sessions at Joseph Whitaker to help with transition to sports in Secondary school. 
  • Increased use of Joseph Whitaker specialist PE staff sessions to teach after school clubs.
  • Use of Joseph Whitaker staff to run a Change for Life club in key stage 1 to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
  • To resource an Olympic themed sports day to allow children to access a range of different sports which children will be able to relate to during the Olympics in Rio.
  • Gymnastics staff training to assist the teaching of gymnastics in school.
  • Gymnastic planning to assist the teaching of gymnastics in school.

Sports Premium money has also been used to provide professional development of school staff, including the PE Subject Co-ordinator.  All staff have been able to access new resources bought to support the teaching so that the quality of PE teaching continues to improve.
