Adswood Primary School

Enjoy, Believe, Achieve

Sports Premium


The Government now provides funding of £150 million per annum for primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE.


Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as of the annual schools census in January. In each year all schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000, plus a premium of £5 per pupil. This means that Adswood will get £9,115 for the year 2016-17.


Review date: April 2018


All schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport and they have the freedom to choose how they do this. To have maximum impact on the pupils at Adswood we will use the money to:

Specialist PE teachers and/or Qualified Sports Coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE


As part of the Stockport Schools Partnership we will pay for the support of PE specialist Mrs Callaghan who works alongside staff and pupils at Adswood to develop skills and confidence of staff in gymnastics, multi-skills and games which in turn filters down to the pupils through the improved quality of their PE lessons. As a result of this intervention and the CPD programme, the attainment and achievement of the pupils is improving.  Pupils are being provided with a P.E. curriculum that addresses all areas and end of year skills/expectations. The evidence collected for the academic year 2016-17 for each class clearly identifies number of hours each child participates in physical activity. (see table below). Skills and end of year targets being met is evident in Target Tracker (the school’s assessment for learning tool).

We use the expertise of qualified coaches to provide both curricular and extra-curricular activities. The pupils benefit from being taught by an activity specific expert and our own staff develop further through sharing outstanding practice and working alongside coaches in the PE lessons.



Dance, led by Fiona Pedroza, continues to provide pupils from both Key Stages with an outstanding learning experience. Every lesson involves every pupil, encouraging them to express their individuality through small group and whole class routines. The end result being a celebration assembly of every pupil’s success, which allows parents/carers, staff and pupils to be part of this wonderful experience and share in the enjoyment of those participating. It is a wonderful opportunity for boys and girls to work together and develop positive working relationships in a fun, engaging environment.



Football lessons are led by a specialist football coach; Ben, who teaches pupils from Year 1 through to Year 6 developing and building upon skills so that progress is evident across the year groups and pupils are encouraged to achieve their full potential. These lessons also act as part of staff CPD as it builds up confidence in delivering ball games/skills whilst at the same time modelling outstanding practise. Football lessons not only provide pupils with hand-eye and foot-eye coordination skills but also develop tactical skills, defending and attacking skills and most importantly the ability to play as part of a team. Ben also provides an after school football club to offer specialist expertise to coaching the school football team.


Paying for Professional Development Opportunities in PE / Sport

 The PE Subject Leader, Mrs Mandy Lennon, will coordinate PE throughout the school, organise and enter children in to both intra/inter competitions and will work alongside sports coaches as well as the SSCO Mrs Callaghan.  As a team we will develop staff confidence, skills and competence so that standards in PE continue to improve. There will also be cover provided to release teachers for professional development in PE through observation of specialist teachers and attending relevant training courses. All teachers will attend at least three CPD courses throughout the year which are an integral part of the SSP package.

This year, pupils will enter the ‘Run it, Jump it, Throw it’ poster and ‘Run it, Jump it, Throw it’ sports photographer of the year. If successful, pupils will attend the celebration evening at Stockport Plaza.



 We evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE, Physical Activity and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Measuring the impact of the activities provided with the Sport Premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school.

Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems (Target Tracker and P.E. Passport App) as well as feedback from staff and visitors, parents and carers to the school (when they are invited in to watch their class/children perform). We also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE through monitoring improvement in achievement and attainment, lesson observations and verbal feedback from pupils and staff. Pupil voice is used to indicate pupil’s perceptions of the quality of P.E at Adswood Primary.

Finally, our key to success in P.E, just like any subject at Adswood is achieved through our motto; 

‘We work in partnership to achieve success because every child matters.’
