Nutfield PE and Sports Funding

The PE and Sports Premium provides primary schools with government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they can use it in the way that best supports their pupils.

The Government has announced that sports premium funding will continue for the academic year September 2022 to July 2023. For the academic year September 2021 to July 2022 we received sports premium funding of £17,760 

How to spend the Sports Premium funding

On the .Gov website, the government provides the following advice for how to spend the Sports Premium funding. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your 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

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • 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

At Nutfield Church (C of E) Primary School, we aim for all our children to flourish in all they do and ‘live life in all its fullness’. (John 10:10) We recognise the importance of Physical Education (PE) as part of a child’s education and as part of their physical and mental wellbeing. It provides opportunities for pupils to be creative and competitive individually, in groups and in teams, whilst promoting positive attitudes towards PE and healthy lifestyles.  PE and sport is an integral part of our wellbeing curriculum and each class receives two PE sessions per week.  We also offer a range of opportunities for children to take part in PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities both during and outside school hours.

We continue to invest our Sports Premium allocation in a variety of ways to improve the quality and breadth of our PE and sports provision and to increase the enjoyment and participation in PE and sport throughout the school, so that all our pupils benefit from the advantages this brings.  We use the Sports Premium funding to offer CPD opportunities for all staff and we ensure that we have enough equipment and resources to teach a wide range of indoor and outdoor sporting activities.  We aim to foster a love of sport and physical activity in our children, and teach them the importance of teamwork in their lives by engaging fully in the local Tandridge District Primary Schools sporting events and tournaments, co-ordinated by Oxted School.  We also plan and organise a number of whole school sports focused days and have close links with several local sporting clubs who send in their specialist sports coaches to train our pupils in sports such as Judo, Cricket and Tennis.

we focus on:

  • Raising the participation of DP pupils in PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities, particularly in respect of narrowing the gap between DP and other children
  • Increasing the participation of all pupils in PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities
  • Encouraging enjoyment in sporting activities amongst all pupils
  • Increasing attainment in PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities
  • Offering a wide variety of PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities through the PE and wider school curriculum
  • Ensuring that school staff are trained in all areas of PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities
  • Providing equipment and resources required for full PE, sports and outdoor adventurous activities provision in school
  • Providing opportunities for pupils to plan, organise and lead sporting events
  • Ensuring that all improvements made are sustainable in the future

Residential and Outside Activity Visits

As part of our new five strand curriculum, launched in September 2019, we have made a strategic investment in developing our wellbeing curriculum, which values the mental and physical health of all our children. We have significantly extended our program of visits: Year 6 visit High Ashurst and Thames Young Mariners for a 4 night residential trip.  Year 5 participate in 3 days of water sports at Aqua Sports in Merstham and Year 4 participate in 3 day visits to High Ashurst.  We use the Sports Premium to subsidise these activities so that residential and out of school provision remains compulsory and inclusive for all our pupils.

Sports Leaders

A team of Sports Leaders, 10 children from Year 6, are appointed each year to support other children in the school achieve in PE, to help plan whole school sporting events and run daily lunchtime games.  The PE lead monitors their impact through review of the events they have organised and feedback from teachers and pupils.
