Sports Premium

Sports Premium Statement

School Vision

At KPJS we believe ‘Education is a gift to be given- without exception’. In our school we strive to enable all children to meet their potential; we want to prepare each and everyone of them to take their place in society as responsible citizens. The targeted and strategic use of the Sports Premium grant will support us in achieving our vision.


The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant after the 2012 Olympic Games. This grant is additional to main school funding and seen as a way to help schools address increased sports participation / wellbeing, lifestyle and child obesity. The grant is usually paid directly to schools allowing them to ensure that funding is used to increase participation in sports activities. This year the Government is giving an extra allowance doubling the previous grant to ensure the impact on physical activity in schools is increased and thereby making the nation healthier.

One of the plans for last year was to increase the number of external competitions that the school took place in. Many of these were summer term activities, e.g. borough sports etc and these were completely disrupted due to lockdown. However, even during lockdown the PE co-ordinator and coach organised daily video exercises for the pupils to do at home including ‘Joe Wicks’ workouts. The school also took part in some online sports events and we actually managed to come 4th in the borough league - a real first for us. Since our return in September 2020 we haven’t been able to take part in any other borough sports events but the PE staff have ensured that all of the children are taking part in Covid safe PE activities in school within their class bubbles. As a consequence of this some of the money given for sports premium has not been fully spent and the Government have allowed us to carry this forward. Our biggest expense - extra swimming lessons has not been fully used as we feel it is still unsafe to transport the children to and make use of the council’s leisure facilities. When Covid is over we will look again at this as last year’s Year 5 pupils missed out on half of their year's swimming activities and the current batch of Year 5 children have not had any swimming to date.

PE and Games at Kenmore Park

Year 3 and 4 classes are allocated at least two sessions of PE and games each week with the exception of Year 5 pupils who attend a regular swimming session for the full academic year and one PE / Games lesson,. Year 6 children have one formal PE / Games lesson throughout the year and would have attended a three day residential in which they complete a series of outdoor and adventurous activities.The school offers a variety of lunchtime and after school clubs with a sports bias. These included multisports, football, dodgeball, cricket, Gifted and talented group, Change4life, and dance. Some of these activities are specially developed to support children who can find playtime and the playground difficult. We did participate in local competitions with other schools, which included football tournaments and athletics.

We also have very good links with our local secondary school, Park High, who not only support our activities but also allows their pupils to fulfil their GCSE sports leadership programme. We also regularly run a whole school competitive sports day to which parents are invited which allows us to promote healthy schools agenda with every family.

These children also have access to our sporting facilities. We run holiday clubs and the children that attend these have access to the play / sports equipment in the school. There is often a ‘sports’ themed holiday club run by our sports coach.

What has sports premium allowed us to do

Sports premium has allowed us to have a more strategic approach to PE and Games throughout the school. This has resulted in increased pupil participation and embed high quality provision and obtain the bronze award for school games last year. It also allows us to have innovative sports provision, e.g. Change4life club,. This stimulates the interest of pupils. In our Change4life club older Year 6 pupils are encouraged to become mentors to the younger pupils and to not only encourage them in the session, but also in the playground. We advertise and use some of the children as ‘sports leaders’ in the playground. They encourage other children to become more active and take part in physical activity. This will be reinstated post covid.

Previously we have only been able to afford Year 5 pupils to attend swimming lessons for one term. Since the introduction of Sports premium we have been able to increase the number of sessions that pupils attend so that they are able to attend for the full academic year. The impact of this is that many more pupils are achieving the national curriculum standard of 25 metres unaided swimming.

We have invested in taking the children to ‘Forest School’. All the Year 3 children go on this trip as well as selected pupils from other year groups who go once a week for a six-week period. This meets part of the outdoor and adventurous PE curriculum. We will continue with this provision


Pre-Covid - over 150 pupils take part in additional activities both at lunchtime and after school. Many of these pupils are attracted to the innovative provision. For example, we have introduced ‘Disco Club’, at lunchtime to encourage active play. The only thing that limits more clubs taking place is the physical space of the school grounds.

Without Sports premium we could not meet the needs of G + T pupils through additional PE / Games sessions.

We are currently investigating if it is possible to team up with some of the private schools in the area so that our pupils may have access to their facilities.

All pupils take part in PE / Games activities and any pupils who have a disability are catered for in those sessions. The school's ethos is very inclusive and the school will provide extra provision for any pupils that need extra support.

PE is mainly taken by specialist staff who are up to date with their current practice through a range of professional training.

Cross-curricular Links

Wherever possible we try to combine our PE / Games curriculum with other aspects of the curriculum so that the children’s learning is embedded through a range of learning techniques. For example, Year 5 children do a topic called ‘Fit for life’. In the science part of this topic the children learn about how to keep healthy, how the major organs of the body work etc. In PE / Games, the children complete a class marathon over a few weeks showing how exercise can help keep the body healthy.


  • Number of pupils in current Yr 6 who were also in Yr 5: 76
  • Number of pupils who swim 25 metres: 42
  • Number of pupils who can use a range of stokes effectively: 23
  • Number of pupils who can perform safe self-rescue in water: 15
A number of factors have direct impact on the figures above:
  1. This cohort has had the opportunity to attend swimming lessons every week . This is a result of the school allocating additional resources to swimming (extra cost of staffing/coaches) via the Sports Premium fund.
  2. In all previous years, pupils had only attended swimming for one term. It was felt this was ineffective in terms of the pupils attaining the targets above and that before Sports Premium funding; the school was not able to extend these swimming slots.
  3. These figures are much higher than last year as the children had a full year of swimming post covid.
  4. Very few pupils have access to swimming beyond the school curriculum.
