Sports/ PE Premium Funding

The vision for PE at Barming Primary School

To become confident, healthy and active children with skills and enjoyment across a broad range of sports and activities.


Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve the United Kingdom's reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.


But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. The Government want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.


To make sure as many people as possible are playing sport, the government is:

  • Funding Sport England, to help community sports grow, including helping 14 to 25 year olds to keep playing sport throughout their lives.
  • Expanding the School Games programme to increase opportunities for more young people to play competitive sport.
  • Spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years from 2013 - 2016.


Sports Premium Update 2017/ 18

(updated 17/11/17)


Our school will receive £19,510 this year from the Departments of Education, Health and Culture to help develop our PE and Sports programme for all students in our school.


With part of the funding we are working with experienced PE & Sport professionals from Physical Activity & Sports Specialists Limited (PASS) to help develop our delivery of high quality PE. PASS will be supporting lessons, providing training for staff and most importantly giving our children a fun, active and engaging PE & Sport opportunities.



To ensure that these developments are sustainable time is being spent on upskilling teachers. We have also spent money on ensuring a good PE curriculum is in place. Other money has also been spent on improving the resources and outdoor opportunities available to further improve PE for the future, not just this year.
