Hambrough Primary School

Sports Premium 2017 - 2018


The Government is providing additional funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Hambrough. 


All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil. 

Allocation for financial year 2017-2018 - £15,525      (TBC)

For the following academic years HPS will receive:

April 2017 – July 2017 £4085

September 2016 – March 2017      £11,440


We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, are that it must be used so that: 

• all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
• the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools
• staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
• some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints
• we make use of collaborative and partnership working


With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, our plans for the use of the Sports Premium funding include:

  • Continued membership of Featherstone School Sports Partnership     £3000
  • Youth Sport Award 2017-18     £500
  • School Games Network  £2000                                                                                                
  • Subsidised after school sporting clubs through qualified sports coaches £6000                                                                                                
  • Providing transport to competitive sporting events  £500

    Subscription to Ealing Community Transport Scheme

    Private hire coach

  • Y6 Residential   £2000
  • Y6 Activity Days   £1025
  • Small Games Equipment  £500


We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. 

Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE. It is anticipated that at the end of the academic year we will have some hard data to show the impact of this sports premium funding on pupil progress and involvement in sport.
