Sports Funding

Sports Funding Impact and Intent – Published July 2023

The most recent PE funding intent and impact statement can be viewed here: Sports Premium July 2023

What is Sports Funding?

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that the Primary PE and Sport Premium should be used to:

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

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding is based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

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

We are using the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at Crayke Church of England Primary School.


Our pupils continue to show an enthusiasm and enjoyment for sports and PE.  Our sports coach works with each class and all the children have benefited from his expertise.  They thoroughly enjoy his games sessions and their development is sustained.  He has helped them to improve their knowledge of team games, their ability to work together as a team as well as their speed, agility and coordination.
