Sports Premium Grant (SPG) 2022/2023
The Primary PE and Sports Premium began in the academic year 2013 to 2014 when the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools in England.
This funding is allocated to primary school head-teacher. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools
At Swinton Fitzwilliam Primary, we are committed to using these funds to provide good quality PE sessions, wider opportunities for children and CPD for staff.
The Purpose of the Sports Premium Grant
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport you offer.
This means that school should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that 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 can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:
- 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
Typical Impact from the PE and Sports Premium Funding
- 100% of children in Years 1 to Y6 have the opportunity to participate in PE and Sports related activities at lunchtime.
- A range of different PE extra-curricular clubs offered this year from Y1 to Y6
- Children have the opportunity to take part in several inter school sports competition or festivals.
How are we building sustainable improvement?

high-quality CPD for staff.
