Sports and PE Premium

What is Sports Premium?

The primary P.E and sports premium is paid to schools to fund additional and sustainable improvement to the provision of P.E and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in 2017/18 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


This current academic year we received £20,820 in funding.


How have we spent the money?

​At Crayford Temple Grove we recognise the contribution of P.E to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, in is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra- curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.


  • Purchasing a scheme of work for delivering outstanding PE lessons in KS1 and KS2
  • CPS for staff to ensure all teaching staff have the skills to deliver outstanding PE lessons
  • After school clubs offered to pupil premium children in the first instance
  • Development of the EYFS outdoor area at North Campus
  • Continued development of the Forest School across both campuses
  • Continued audits of PE equipment across both campuses and new high quality PE resources
  • Transportation and cost of full day orienteering activity day for pupil premium children.


The effect of the funding on pupils’ sport participation and attainment

As consequence of the Sports Funding, we were able to deliver a range of high quality PE lessons from Reception to Year 6 across both campuses by using a new scheme of work. Fitness and engagement in PE lessons has improved drastically.

We were able to buy new equipment, which facilitated better and wider opportunities, such as the delivery of football, hockey, dance and OAA from Reception to Year 6. Also, this equipment a positive impact on athletics and Sports Days across both campuses.

Children were provided with high quality equipment to ensure exercise and physical health during playtimes and lunch times.

There was an improvement in our Forest School provision, as well as the outdoor areas for our EYFS phase.

How will you make sure these improvements are sustainable?

Staff will continue to be offered CPD in PE and fitness to ensure outstanding lessons are being taught.
