Sports Premium

As a school we receive an annual grant called PE and Sport Premium which is aimed at improving PE and sport at our school.

Here at St Oswald’s, we recognise the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle and we are passionate about raising the profile of sport and PE across the school, to encourage lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. 

sports strategy

We aim to encourage all pupils to participate in regular sporting and PE activity, offering a wide variety of these to all children. There are a good selection of after-school clubs taking place throughout the school year with an opportunity to take part in inter-school competitions. Our pupils have competed in many events over the previous years and were hoping to add even more this year.

An annual report is produced stating how the sports premium money has been used. Our report for 2020 is attached below.

From September 2013 until 2020 the government has pledged £150 million per annum into primary schools to improve the provision of physical education with school. The money is given by Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport through Sport England. Each school will receive approximately £8,000 plus an additional £5 per pupil.

Total annual budget for St. Oswald’s = £9,375

The following is a summary of how we spent the 2014/2015 Sport Premium monies. The priorities have been identified by using the Youth Sport /trust self – review tool in relation to PE, sport and physical activity. In order to access expertise and appropriate support the school is working in collaboration with Leeds Active Schools, The Youth Sports Trust (YST) and the Sainsbury’s School Games to support the priorities.

    • Membership of Leeds Active Schools providing support, resources and development opportunities for staff.
    • Professional development for teachers to increase their skills, knowledge, understanding and confidence in the delivery of the new PE curriculum.
    • More opportunities to be physically active provided for all children through an increased number of school sports clubs.
    • Opportunities to work in partnership with local schools to promote healthy competition.
    • Outdoor and adventurous activities, utilising the schools grounds and facilities as well as outside providers.
    • Sport coaches, used in conjunction with the teaching staff, provided both high quality provision and staff development.
