‘Learning for our Future’

PE & Sports Premium

As outlined by The Department of Education the Primary PE and Sport Funding must be used to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 per year plus an additional £10 per eligible pupil. Bedgrove Junior School received £10,305 in the academic year of 2016/2017 and will receive £20,800 in the academic year of 2017/2018.


There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

Bedgrove Junior School PE and Sports Premium Action Plan

Physical education is about providing children with a foundation and love for lifelong participation in physical activity, enabling them to become competent and confident physical movers. All children are entitled to benefit from the enjoyment of a broad and balanced PE curriculum and extra curricular activities that will extend their knowledge, physical skills and attitudes in a positive manner irrespective of race, gender, or level of ability.

Physical Education forms part of our well-being curriculum at Bedgrove Junior School. We recognise the importance of teaching our pupils about healthy lifestyles and as a result invest a huge amount of money into ensuring we deliver the best quality of PE education alongside our extra curricular activities and our engagement in local sports festivals, tournaments and leagues.


We have an excellent PE team consisting of Mr Nieysto, Mrs Tatlow, Miss Adams and Mr McDonald who have all completed their Level 2/3 coaching qualification and teach consistently outstanding PE lessons. All of the PE team regularly engage with our other staff by supporting them in PE lessons and/or extra-curricular activities to ensure the quality of teaching os strong and sustainable across the school.


Our objective is to put children at the heart of PE learning by:

  • Supporting learning in PE in the same way as other curriculum subjects
  • Recognising a child’s diverse needs (physical, cognitive, social, creative, health and emotional) as the focus of learning in P.E
  • Ensuring that learning experiences build on children’s previous achievements so that they can make progress according to their abilities and learn to adapt to changing circumstances.
  • Providing children with access to a broad range of movement contexts and resources both indoors and outdoors, individually and with others that enable them to engage in purposeful, competitive and co-operative physical activities in a range of increasingly challenging situations
