PE Grant


PE at Kerr Mackie Primary School 2013-2015


Sports Premium


The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to improve provision of physical education (PE), sport and physical activity in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport &€“ is being allocated to all primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.


At Kerr Mackie Primary School we have researched and identified several areas which we aim to improve and enhance through the use of Sport Premium funding, in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils in PE, sport and physical activity.


The school is using the funding in a variety of ways to improve the provision of PE, sport and physical activity:


  • A significant proportion of our funding has been invested in the professional development of teachers at our school in order that they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport. €˜

  • The school has invested in employing an additional member of staff to deliver outdoor sports to children across the school.

  • Additional Change4Life activities are to be introduced to support and engage children

  • Professional development opportunities for the school'€™s PE subject leader

  • Children have taken part in a variety of sport competitions

  • The school has  bought into the Leeds PE and School Sport SLA (Active Schools)


 Our identified priorities for 2013-15 are:


  • Improve staff skills, knowledge, understanding and confidence in the teaching of all the elements of P.E. through additional staff training;

  • Each year group has new PE units planned and focusing on high quality PE.

  • To achieve the silver Youth Sports Trust (YST) Primary Quality Mark to prove our commitment to PE.

  • To achieve Sainsbury'€™s School games bronze award.


  • Increase pupil participation in extra-curricular sports clubs;
  • Increase participation in intra and inter-school competition through releasing staff, membership of the local partnership and membership of the Youth Sports Trust.
  • To support lunchtime supervisors and train young leaders to introduce playground games.
