PE and Sports Premium

Purpose of funding:

The PE and Sports Premium is in addition to the school’s budget. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


The Government’s vision is that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

At Marton Primary Academy and Nursery, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of children. Through PE and sport, children develop many of our core values such as sportsmanship, respect, trying our best and honesty.

Our overall aim is to raise standards and participation in P.E. and school sport increasing the opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons, opportunities to experience a wider range of activities, increased opportunities for physical exercise and improved learning for all.

We value the sporting potential of every child and are committed to providing a range of sports and opportunities to enable the children to be physically active. We recognise the value of competitive sports and see inter-school activities as an opportunity for Gifted and Talented children to showcase and develop their talents. We also develop a range of internal and external activities, to allow children of all abilities to experience sports competition.


To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport through:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • A broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.
  • Building the capabilities and competencies of our teachers to deliver high quality games and PE lessons to develop skills and fitness.
  • Developing a range of extra-curricular and lunchtime clubs around the school day including: speed stacking, football, netball, street dance, gymnastics, rugby and boccia.
  • Taking opportunities across our curriculum for children to enjoy active and healthy activities.
  • Swimming is part of our Passport for Learning in Year Two and part of the curriculum in Year Three.

We organise an annual Sports Days allowing all children the opportunity to participate and compete against other children.
