Sports Premium

Sports and Sports Premium funding


At Northdown, we pride ourselves in providing our pupils with a rich and varied Sports curriculum, led by our P.E. leads, Mr Nicklen and Mr Thompson.

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school headteachers with a view to making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and school sport. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

Funding allocations are based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 as recorded in the January 2019 census. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

The funding allocated to Northdown Primary School will be approximately £19,000 during 2019 -2020.


We will use our Sports Premium funding to:

  • Improve the quality of PE provision both within the curriculum and for extra-curricular after school clubs and activities.
  • Increase participation in extra-curricular PE and sport in a wide variety of sports and activities.
  • Improve the quality and quantity of competitive opportunities within school (intra) and with other schools in the local area (inter).
  • Generate a positive attitude towards being active, so that all children can live healthy and fulfilling lifestyles both at and beyond their time at Northdown Primary School
