PE & Sports Premium

What is Primary PE and Sport Premium?

The Primary PE and Sport Premium is funding 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.

At Beechwood, we aim for ALL children to experience excellent physical education where every child feels confident and ready to participate, leading to lifelong enjoyment, participation and active lifestyle choices.

The table below is a breakdown of how the funding received from April 2017 to April 2018 was spent and the impact that this has had.

Sport Funding Available 2017-2018


This includes £5,182 carried over from Summer 2017 and £537 spent from the next SSP instalment that was due in April 2018.































As a result of the spending, 100% of children in Key Stage 1 were able to take part in intra-school competitions to encourage sport participation. In addition to this, 45% of children in Key Stage 2 were involved in inter-school events where they were able to challenge other schools. 

In addition to this, the school's baseline measurement of fitness improved by 23%, with 64.6% of children able to meet the expected level (4 minutes of continuous running in Key Stage 2 and 3 minutes of continuous reunning in Key Stage 1).



Currently, there are 54% of pupils within their year 6 cohort for 2018/2019 that can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres use a range of strokes effectively perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. There will be catch up sessions during the Summer Term for the children who have not yet achieved this.
