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.

Sports Funding: 

We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extracurricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.


The Primary School Sport's Funding will enable us to continue to extend our provision of activities through employing additional sports professionals, developing our resources, entering into more competitive sports competition and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions. 


What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2016/17 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school receives £8000 per year, plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years.  The money can only be spent on PE and sport. 


How is the funding used at Holme Community School?

In 2015/16 Holme Community School received £8410 in School Sports Premium. This money was used to provide: 

  • Weekly sports sessions for all year groups, delivered by Dallam School. Enabling the children to access more specialist coaching and facilities. 
  • Specialist sports coaching in school. 
  • Additional PE and Sports equipment, including games equipment for break/lunch times. 
  • Access to a variety of sports competitions. 
  • Providing places for children at Sports Clubs. 


In 2016/17 Holme Community School recieved £8480 in School Sports Premium. We used this money to: 

  • Employ an additional sports coach to teach gymnastics to all children. 
  • Provide specialist sports coaching within school, including training staff. 
  • Purchase additional PE and Sports equipment, including school sports kit. 
  • Provide transportation and access to a wider range of sports competitions including lacrosse, tag-rugby and orienteering. 
  • Worked alongside Dallam School for their specialist staff to deliver lessons using their facilities and resources as part of a sports partnership. 
  • Subscribed to a School Sports Competition Package which enabled all children in Key Stage 1 to take part in a competition, and for key stage two teams to compete at a District and County level. 
  • Fund professional archery instructors to work in school for three days with our children. 
  • Subsidise extra-curricular activities for children. 


The Impact of the Funding in 2016/17: 

Pupil voice surveys, and parent surveys indicate that sport is now a strength of the school. The increased range of sports and activities has increased motivation and engagement in sport and there has been an increase in the up-take of extra-curricular activities. School attendance continues to be strong, and the basic values of sportsmanship translate well into the classroom, where children are able to work as part of a team. 


Children have experienced new sports activities and the importance of active, fit and healthy lifestyles is embedded within the culture of the school.
