PE and Sports Premium

The government believes that the sports premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current plans for a legacy after the London 2012 Olympic Games.

There are 5 key factors for use of Sports Premium:


  • Regular Physical Activity


  • Raised Profile of PE and Sport


  • Increased Confidence and Knowledge of Staff


  • Range of Sports Experienced


  • Increase in Competition Participation

The government recognises that physical education forms part of every child’s entitlement to a good education. It is unique in that it is taught through physical activity in weekly practical lessons both indoors and outdoors, in a wide range of physical, creative and aesthetic settings. It provides pupils with the generic skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become physically literate, and at the same time gives most of them their first regular experiences of sport. When taught well, physical education enthuses and inspires pupils to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise.


The sports premium was introduced in 2013 and aims to improve the quality of provision in physical education and sport in every state primary school in England.


The information below provides a summary of funding spent at North Town. It does not represent an exhaustive list of provisions made.

Staff have been trained to deliver the club and impact can be measured by regular attendance and engagement at the club by targeted children. This year our C4L programme has run during all of the Spring and Summer term
