Sports Premium Information



Since 2013, the government have annually allocated Sport Premium funding to primary schools, in order to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and school sport. For 2019-2020, we received £16,000, plus £10 per pupil to achieve this goal.



At St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School, we believe PE and sport play an important role in our school, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.  Children learn to develop the important qualities of teamwork, communication, discipline, resilience, ambition and having fun, leading to improved health, self-esteem, concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.


We welcome the Government’s provision of this additional funding to improve Physical Education (PE) and sport at St. Mary's, and are committed to using this invaluable resource in developing sustainable high quality PE lessons, alongside providing greater opportunities for all our young people to participate in sports clubs and competitions.


This year, our Sport Premium funding has been used for the following:

York Schools’ Sport Network subscription, enabling our staff to work alongside specialist Physical Education teachers to develop their own Physical Education teaching. It has also enabled us to participate in city-wide sports competitions at both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.

Employ a cricket specialist during curriculum time.

Employ a fun fitness specialist during curriculum time.

Provide curriculum enrichment activity sessions across the school.

Employ coaches in school to undertake after-school sports clubs.

Purchase of resources for use within the teaching of the Physical Education curriculum.

Purchase of resources for use by children at playtimes.

Purchase of sports trophies and medals.

The impact of this has been that:

Staff have a greater understanding and confidence in planning and delivering effective Physical Education lessons.

High attainment of pupils in Physical Education across the school with all pupils achieving age-related expectations or above.

A large number of children have been involved in competitive sporting activities, developing their skills and tactics in match scenarios.

A large number and percentage of children have been involved in a wide range of clubs, developing their skills and tactics in fun game scenarios.

Children have participated in intra-school competitions, developing their skills and tactics in a non-threatening, competitive environment.

Children have participated in structured sporting activities during playtimes, resulting in further physical, sporting and personal development and improved behaviour management.

Children have developed leadership skills when organising and running Playleader sessions, resulting in increased independence, confidence and self-esteem.

We have achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Silver Award.
