Sports Premium – 2017-2018

In March 2013, the government announced Olympic Legacy funding for physical education and school sport. This money is ring fenced for PE and school sport and initially consisted of a 2 year grant from 2013-2015. However, it has now been extended into 2016. This funding must be targeted at improving the quality of provision and developing healthy lifestyles for all children in every state primary school in England.

In September 2017, the government announced that this funding had been doubled. As a result, for the academic year Sept 2017 to July 2018, Carpenters Primary School will receive a total of £19,480 towards Sports initiatives. In September 2017 we will receive £11,363 will an additional payment of £8,117 in April 2018.

The following is the proposal for the next round of funding:





Improved swimming provision


To provide a swimming programme which allows children to:

  • understand how to stay safe in and near water in Year 2;
  • learn to swim over a period of time from Year 3 to Year 6;
  • be able to swim at least 25metres by the time they leave Carpenters;
  • develop essential life skills such as; being safe near water, swimming and developing a healthy lifestyle.


Improved and consistent PE provision using a sports coach £14,000

To provide high quality PE lessons which allow children to:
