Sports Premium

Chartham Primary


At Chartham Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children in our school. We believe that an inclusive, varied PE curriculum and broad extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. We strive to offer sporting opportunities for  our children in a safe, caring and fun environment.


What is the Sports Premium?

The government provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and has seen money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.  

For 2018/2019 each school receives £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil -

an investment worth £750 million.


Purpose of the funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Hiring specialist PE sports coaches to provide lunchtime and afterschool sport opportunities for our children.
  • Regularly attending Inter-School sports competitions
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for competitions and professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing new, replacing  old and updating the schools' PE equipment and resources.
  • Purchase a whole-school scheme of work in PE to support teachers in delivering excellent and progressive lessons.

Chartham Primary School’s allocation for the year 2018-2019 is £18,897.  Further information about how we are using our PE and Sport Premium can be found below.

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below:

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?

N.B. Even though your children may swim in another year please report on their attainment on leaving

primary school.


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
