PE and sport premium




What is the Sport Premium?

The government has provided additional funding for the academic year 2015/2016 to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Academies receive this money directly from the government. Academies are led and managed by an Academy Trust. In the case of Rushbrook Primary Academy, this is the Bright Futures Educational Trust. Some academies have sponsors such as businesses, universities, other schools, faith groups or voluntary groups. Sponsors are responsible for improving the performance of their schools.


Schools have to explain to their governing bodies how they want to spend the Sport Premium.

Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future, as part of the school’s overall provision.

How are we using the funding to benefit our children?

At Rushbrook Primary Academy all pupils are offered a varied curriculum which incorporates an awareness and understanding of the benefits and consequences of a healthy lifestyle. Through P.E. lessons and after school clubs we enable children to develop habits and skills to keep themselves fit and active.  Our Y6 children benefit from an annual residential visit to Ghyll Head, which develops outdoor adventure skills alongside team-work and social skills. Year 5 have the opportunity to learn about how to cycle safely through a two day course delivered by specialist providers in school.  Year 4 take regular weekly swimming lessons as part of the P.E. timetable. With this positive, inclusive approach towards sport, health and well-being, we have allocated the funding in a number of ways:

  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to provide a variety of after school sports activities for KS2 pupils
  • Increasing sporting opportunities for pupils through participation in the Manchester PE Association Games and through many after school activities
  • Working together with the Diane Modhal Sports Foundation to progress our gifted and talented pupils
  • Continuing with established links with Lancashire County Cricket Club and Sale Sharks Rugby Club, delivering coaching during curriculum time
  • Continuing to provide a range of supervised sporting activities at lunchtime to increase pupils’ participation in sports
  • Maintaining a lunchtime Change4Life Club for KS1 pupils
  • Developing young sports leaders through the Play Leaders Programme at lunchtime
  • Providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport
  • Purchasing sports kit and equipment
  • Planning to develop and deliver a parents Healthy Lifestyle Activity Club
