PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Selborne CE Primary School PE Funding Statement


What is the PE and sports premium?

Each school receives £8000 plus an £5 per additional pupil per year to be spent on improving sport and PE provision for all pupils. And for this year this amount is being increased and for the academic year 2019-20, Selborne will receive £16,780.  In 2020-2021, it is anticipated that the school will receive a similar amount.  This is to be confirmed and focus will be given to maintaining standards of inter-school competition and raising physical activity on a weekly basis through outdoor learning, enhancing the curriculum by increasing the time children spend being physically active in their learning rather than sat in classrooms.


Below is a joint statement from the Department for Education and the Department for Culture, Media & Sport about the PE and sports premium:


“We are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. We will allocate this extra funding directly to primary headteachers.”


“Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:


•hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons

•support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs

•provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers

•run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

•run sports activities with other schools”

How does this affect our school?

To make the most of this opportunity we have formed an Alton partnership of 11 primary schools. As a group the Alton cluster of primary schools has decided to use part of the money to employ a PE teacher. The idea is to provide our teachers with an opportunity to work alongside a qualified PE professional to further support them in the delivery of high quality PE and games lessons. The PE teacher we have employed, Mr Leo Maliphant, works across all the schools teaching PE to provide new opportunities and ideas to pupils and teachers alike. We feel this method provides excellent training for our school to leave a lasting legacy of PE.


Who have we employed?

Leo Maliphant

My aim has been to increase and enhance the opportunities for children to experience sport and exercise. Within schools I have been able to add in new areas to the PE curriculum; such as Volleyball, Tri-golf and Orienteering for children to experience and enjoy. Outside of school I have strengthened the links to the local secondary schools (Amery Hill and Eggars) as well as starting new links with Alton College and Alton Sports centre. This has allowed activities such as Trampolining, Cross country, Dodgeball, Table Tennis, Orienteering and a Swimming gala to be added to the list of growing opportunities. With the continued enthusiasm of the schools and staff, physical education and sport continues to grow and flourish within the cluster and participation levels are increasing all the time. There are still new opportunities to explore and more links to develop with the hope that every child can find what inspires them to be active and take part in sport.

My role within the Alton Primary cluster is to work alongside teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons. My time is split evenly between all 11 schools and I teach at 9 different schools a week. Every half term I change the schools, teachers and classes that I work with to maximise the impact I can have.

Coming from a secondary PE background I am able to use my experience and knowledge of teaching 11 to 16 year olds to further develop children in a primary context.


What are the aims for this role?

The 4 main aims of my job are:

· To increase teachers' confidence in delivering high quality PE lessons

· To provide ideas, resources and lesson planning for teachers to use

· To encourage teachers to share ideas and learn from each other

· To provide new opportunities for pupils to learn both during and after school


How is the rest of the money going to be used?

In addition to employing a cluster PE teacher we have also used the sports premium funding to provide opportunities for children to attend competitions and tournaments with local schools by releasing staff to transport and supervise children at these events. We continue to release staff to work with the cluster PE teacher on designing schemes of work and assessment criteria. Staff also attend cluster planning meetings


Funding has been provided for vulnerable children to attend paid clubs.


We have purchased equipment including some new scooters for year R, new playground toys, new football goals so that more children can play football, the netball posts have been replaced and other sporting equipment such as footballs have been purchased.


We also funded a trip to the Womens FA Cup final at Wembly which was an inspiring and motivational trip.


We have funded additional swimming lessons, so that the children attend more sessions to  ensure that they reach the required standards.  


We fund a cricket club after school in the summer term.



Children have extensive access to after school provision which includes training sessions and tournaments. This year they have the opportunity to attend: Three Cross Country races; Hockey; Orienteering; Table Tennis; Basketball; Dodgeball; Badminton; Athletics; Girls Football; Boys Football; Netball; and Tri-Golf. These are open to all children in the age group for which planned and there is no selection other than for the final team event, there is a good take up in these events. In 2016 2017 children from our School attended 19 out of the 24 additional cluster events offered.


Children take part in the Golden 10 each day - which is an additional 10 minutes of exercise daily.


We have helped to fund and taken part in the Alton Area Primary Swimming Gala - children are very keen to take part in this and it is always oversubscribed.


The after school cricket club has an excellent take up and is full.


Sporting activity has a high profile in the school and the children are very keen to participate. Many of our children are achieving well in the cluster competitions both on a personal basis but also as teams across the age ranges.


All Year 6 children have met the required standard in swimming.


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres? 81%

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort

use a range of strokes effectively [for example,

front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort

perform safe self-rescue in different water based



Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and

Sports Premium to provide additional provision for

swimming but this must be for activity over and

above the national curriculum requirements. Have

you used it in this way?
