PE and Sport Premium

Physical Education and Sport Premium Funding at Heronswood


Schools with primary-age pupils receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years One to Six.  Currently at Heronswood Primary we receive £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil.  The money has been provided to enable schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.



Physical Education and Sport are an essential part of school life at Heronswood Primary School. Over the last 12 months we have been looking carefully at how we can improve the PE curriculum and the provision we offer our children.  We encourage all children to have an active lifestyle and take part in school clubs, competitions and events. 


Strategic Use of Funding:


  • Increase teachers’ subject knowledge so that there is consistently good teaching in PE


  • Achieve high participation for all and improve performance, including the promotion of elite performers


  • Promote life-long participation in sports activities - encourage pathways to participation outside of school


  • Help combat the rising rate of sedentary lifestyles and childhood obesity by successfully implementing strategies to promote pupils’ health and well-being


  • Create a culture where PE and Sport are valued
