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.

Total spend


Sport Funding Available 2018-2019


£2960.37 was spent in advance for the 2017-2018 financial year and £5,164.59 is remaining from the next SSP instalment received in April 2019. This money is intended to be spent on an orienteering course and staff CPD on how to use it In addition to this, bikes will be purchased for reception and Year 2 to ensure that all children in Key Stage 1 are able to ride proficiently.

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 and have started to take part in inter-school events. In addition to this, 42% of children in Key Stage 2 have so far been involved in inter-school events where they were able to challenge other schools. 

In addition to this, the school's baseline measurement of fitness has improved by 11% on the previous academic year, with 75% 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). This will be recorded again in the Summer Term.


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.
