PE & Sport Premium

What is the Primary PE and Sports Premium?

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:

  • To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports;

  • To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence;

  • To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce;

  • Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement.

At Dormanstown Primary Academy, we recognise the contribution of PE and sport to the health and well-being of our pupils. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. We place a high value on encouraging children to be active in sports and PE in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, be successful and develop both essential life skills and  positive attitudes. The academy therefore uses the sports funding in order to support this commitment to children.

The academy has been allocated £17,940 for this current academic year.

2017 – 2018 Sport Premium Funding Action Plan


At Dormanstown Primary Academy, we believe that swimming is an essential life skill. Swimming has many benefits, as listed below.

Fitness: Swimming uses every part of the body’s major muscle groups and is a fantastic aerobic activity to get your heart pumping.

Health: Swimming can lower your resting heart rate and lower blood pressure, as oxygen becomes more efficient and your tidal volume improves. This is the amount of air that moves in and out of your lungs during relaxed breathing. Swimming is also an effective way to burn calories, which can reduce the risk of childhood obesity.

Strength and Conditioning: As a child kicks, pushes, pulls and stretches through the water, their muscles need to work harder against the extra resistance water provides. Muscles strengthen with minimal pressure on bones and joints, lengthen and gain flexibility which provides the basis of a strong and agile body. Swimming also improves the cardiovascular system, as it: raises your heart rate; gets the blood pumping around your body; boosts lung capacity and strengths your heart muscle.

Water Safety: Swimming teaches you how to stay safe in and around water.

Social: A positive relationship with the water will open the door to a whole range of water sports and activities. This will boost pupils’ confidence and their ability to interact with others.

Academic: Swimming assists in the development of gross motor skills, postural control, core stability and bilateral movement, all of which aid the improvement of handwriting, reading and concentration.

Curriculum Requirements
