Report on the use of PE premium funding and current Action Plan

Updated November 2017 - Annette Crewe

PE Premium: Background and aims

PE Premium funding is ring-fenced money delegated to schools to ensure they are able to fulfil the Department for Education’s vision of all pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

The funding is provided to ensure schools achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools, securing improvement in the following areas:

1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils

5. Increased participation in competitive sport.

Use of the PE Premium at Hagbourne CE Primary School to date

Key actions



PE Premium funding was combined with that from 2 other local schools and used to employ a full-time qualified secondary PE teacher to focus on Priorities 1, 2 and 3 above.

The Specialist PE Teacher taught alongside class teachers at Hagbourne two days a week, modelling key teaching skills needed to secure good progress over a unit of work.

Reviewed long term overview to ensure a broad range of sports and activities offered (priority 4).

Developed detailed Schemes of work for the PE units working collaboratively with teachers (priority 4).

Led the football club and netball club (with the PE co-ordinator) entering more competitions.

Input from the Specialist PE Teacher, the long- term schemes of work for PE were re-written and resourced fully.

Teachers’ subject knowledge and confidence in teaching PE increased significantly.  

The increased knowledge and skills of staff, and the enthusiasm modelled by the Specialist PE Teacher, ensured that more pupils became enthusiastic about being involved in sport and, as a result, many participated in a broader range of activities than was the case previously.

Teachers developed confidence in leading PE lessons so, towards the end of the year, the focus for the support was shifted to teachers taking on a greater proportion of the teaching role during each session and the Specialist PE Teacher acting more as a coach / mentor for staff.  

Schemes of work for each of the planned PE units were started and  written collaboratively between with the Specialist PE Teacher and teaching staff.

The football team were successful in several competition this year.

Next Steps: Specialist PE Teacher to take more of a coaching role.  Finish Schemes of work.

14 - 15  

Employment of the Specialist PE Teacher continued, allowing an ongoing focus on priorities 1, 2 and 3; the focus of this role shifted to a coaching / mentoring one for teaching staff to enable them to become fully confident in delivering all areas of the PE curriculum.

Finished Schemes of work in collaboration with staff.

This shift created additional time for the PE Teacher to lead involvement in sports competitions and tournaments (priority 5).

Teachers were supported to take on a fuller role in PE lessons. Monitoring carried out by the Specialist PE Teacher showed that class teachers’ practice in teaching PE was consistently good by the end of the school year.

Schemes of work were written ensuring the increased subject knowledge and improved planning for progression of skills could be retained in school should the use of the funding change.  

Staff were more confident in teaching PE themselves, but less confident in assessing pupils’ skills and ensuring that plans secured sound progression in these; as such, this was developed in the summer term in order to continue the following year.

The football team continued their success.

The Specialist PE Teacher secured promotion to a different post at the end of the year, allowing the focus of the funding to be re-evaluated.

Next Steps: Develop an effective assessment system.


Focus remained on priorities 2 and 3, with a PE teacher being seconded from a local secondary school specifically to support staff to develop an assessment system.

Two new teachers to school so the funding was used to employ a specialist swimming teacher to work alongside to upskill in order to teach swimming lessons in the school pool.

A new system for assessment in PE, in line with the removal of levels from the National Curriculum, was developed across Hagbourne and two other local schools. This included videoing pupils during lessons which can be used to exemplify the standard expected of pupils by the end of key year groups.

Staff used these materials to make judgements of pupils’ attainment.

Spend to date shows that staff are confident in planning, teaching and, assessing PE.

Next Steps: Logistics of PE lessons e.g setting up equipment ready to use right from the start of a session can often be an obstacle to securing consistently outstanding provision, along with challenges in differentiating and assessing during the course of a lesson.
