Milton Road Primary School

Where Learning is An Adventure


PE & Sport Premium

Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. The funding is only to be spent on PE and sport, and will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching and teacher training to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.

For the school year 2019-2020, here at Milton Road Primary School we will be receiving £19,558, which, in accordance with DfE guidance, we will continue to channel directly into developing the provision of high quality Sports throughout the school.


This year we are focusing on raising the levels of activity of ALL the children in the school. This will be achieved through more varied lunchtime activities and resources, a major focus on a more diverse PE curriculum and further development of ‘Active Learning’.

We have put together a plan that is based around the academic year September 2019 to July 2020. Below is a breakdown of how this year’s SPG funding will be spent:


£3700 – Key Indicator (KI) 1 - The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity

£2500 - KI 2 - The profile of PESSPA being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

£2400 - KI 3 - Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport


£5900 - KI 4 - Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils


£5050 - KI 5 - Increased participation in competitive sport



Due to the Covid 19 outbreak, many training courses, tournaments and sports events were cancelled from the beginning of February 2020. Then with lockdown in March and school closures, PE and break/lunchtime activities, Daily mile and Active learning ceased for at least 10 weeks. Children were encouraged via our online learning platform to remain as active as possible.

The effects of this are:

  • Possibly much reduced physical activity amongst children
  • Reduction in competitive sport
  • Training for teachers cancelled
  • Carry forward of unspent funding
