P.E. and Sport Premium

Broadbent Fold Primary School - P.E. and Sport Premium

The government is continuing to provide additional funding for the academic years 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 to improve provision of physical education (P.E.) and sport in primary schools. This funding (provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport) is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of P.E. and sport in schools.

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of P.E. and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. Below is a link to a report about how our P.E. premium money at Broadbent Fold was spent and the impact of the money during the academic year 2015-2016.  There is also a link to an Impact Action Plan for 2016-2017 which outlines how we intend to spend the P.E. premium this year and the intended impact. The actions in this plan link to our vision that every child should leave Broadbent Fold physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Physical Education is very important at Broadbent Fold Primary School and Nursery. It promotes our children’s strength, control and co-ordination, improving their physical competence and confidence as well as their ability to perform a wide range of activities. Our children also learn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and to be aware of the factors that affect their health and fitness.

We give all the children the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of physical activities. At least two hours of P.E. lessons are timetabled each week for every class.PE is delivered by school sports specialists. As the children progress through the school they are taught the importance of teamwork and co-operation and encouraged to apply their sports skills to team situations. 


Broadbent Fold has decided to use the funding to:

  • support and engage the least active children in physical activities
  • pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • increase pupils’ participation in the sports and physical activities
  • provide places for pupils on before and after school sports clubs
  • improve resources to a support the development of the subject

Please see below our statements and impact.
