PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.




Sport Premium funding is money that primary schools receive each year from the Government to improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer pupils. The funding is based on the number of pupils in the school in years 1 to 6. This money should be used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers and to make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.


This year we will spend our Sports Premium Funding on:-


  • hiring external coaches to support the staff in delivering the PE curriculum whilst upskilling staff.
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport
  • providing cover to release teachers and LSA’s to accompany and support pupils at sporting events, attend cluster meetings and time for PE co-ordinators to track Sports Premium impact
  • transport costs to festivals and sports tournaments
  • equipment to enhance PE opportunities for pupils
  • cost of trophies, refreshments and costumes for different events
  • Providing new sporting opportunities for pupils.




The school believes that physical education and associated physical activities are unique and vital contributors to a person’s physical, emotional and mental health. When experienced in a safe and supportive environment they develop physical, personal, social and cognitive skills and foster co-operation, tolerance and self-esteem.  They provide all pupils and the wider school community, irrespective of age, gender or ability, opportunities for participation, enjoyment and success, introducing them to the pleasures of physical activity and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.  They provide creative, competitive and challenging opportunities for individuals, groups and teams.  High quality physical education contributes positively towards the raising of whole school standards.

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School is committed to increasing the participation rates, activity and fitness levels of the whole school community through the provision of a safe, supportive environment, conducive to the promotion of physical activity.


A broad and balanced PE curriculum is provided to ensure that pupils develop fundamental skills and confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.  We use REAL PE to develop the skills of the children that they can apply to different sports.

The school gives all pupils opportunities to take part in competitive sports and activities, through a range of intra and inter school events. The school also provides a diverse range of extra-curricular enrichment and extension activities and clear routes to community sports clubs.

All staff aim to provide high quality teaching and learning using a variety of inclusive styles within lessons in order to engage all pupils and raise standards of achievement in line with the National Curriculum expectations.  Planned activities may be for the whole class, groups or individuals.  Teachers draw attention to examples of good performance as models for the other pupils, and encourage pupils to evaluate their own work as well as the work of others.  Within lessons pupils are given opportunities to be creative, co-operative and competitive and they work with a wide range of resources.




At Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, we use REAL PE.




At Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School we encourage the physical development of our children in the Foundation Stage as an integral part of their learning.  We relate the physical development of the children to the objectives set out in The Early Learning Goals for Physical Development (Moving and Handling and Health and Self-Care), which underpin the curriculum planning for children aged 4 to 5 years.




At Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School we follow the South Gloucestershire safety procedures as adopted from ‘Safe Practice in Physical Education’ 2016 edition published by afPE. This manual is referred to for guidance on all issues pertaining to safety in PE and School Sport
