Sports & PE Premium

Sports & PE Premium


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

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that the schools should use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offer
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

What is Sports Premium?

The primary PE and sport premium is paid to schools to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils. In the 2020 to 2021 academic year, our aim was to encourage the development of healthy and active lifestyles.

How have we spent the money?

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Additional ‘Change4Life’ sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE / sport
  • Running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE / sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.

 PLANNED SPEND 2020/2021

This academic year our Sports Premium for 2020/21 is £19,570.

We will use the money to ensure that all children benefit, regardless of their sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

Impact in  2019/2020

This academic year our Sports Premium for 2019/20 is £19,570.

We will use the money to ensure that all children benefit, regardless of their sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development. 

In this academic year we are planning to continue with the successful areas from the previous year in order to develop certain aspects even further. The premise of this is that we can make these changes long lasting and sustainable so that year on year we continue to improve opportunity for sporting opportunities for our pupils.

Therefore the sports premium fund will be spent on the following areas:-

  • Increase the amount of events that we attend in the Association of Lewisham Primary School Sport (ALPS membership) competitions.

  • Improve lunchtime training in sports development for lunchtime staff and purchase more resources for playground sports and PE equipment.

  • Expand inter house and inter class competitions across Key Stage 2 in a variety of different sports. We will also purchase trophies for these competitions.

  • The opportunity for staff training will continue through A.L.P.S membership and staff CPD; we will continue to have a have a gymnastics coach in school who will work with teachers.

  • Create cross- curricular links within, PSHCE, Science and Food to look further into lifestyle, the body and dietary aspects of healthy lifestyles.

  • Develop more links with sports clubs in the local area so children can develop their interest in sport outside of school time. We will also provide teams with valuable outside experiences to improve their knowledge of the sport e.g. tickets to professional matches (Surrey Storm, Lewisham Thunder and London Lions).

  • Continue to use the after school sports clubs to target children who may not wish to participate in sport at a competitive level. We will also introduce Personal Best Challenges to give these students a sense of achievement in sport.

  • Introduce student Sport Leaders who will develop leadership experience by helping with lunchtime clubs and assisting in sports days and inter house competitions.

Review of last year's spend

Pupils benefited from half of the academic year of specialist PE lessons from a Fit For Sport coach who worked with teachers and students from Nursery to Year 6. Both PE coach and class teacher lead PE lessons for the whole school and numerous lunch time and afterschool club activities. Specialist PE coach engaged with the local borough enabling all pupils in Key Stage 2  (KS2) to take part and attended external competitions with the school.

Our PE curriculum offers a broad range of activities, enabling all children in Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key Stage 2 an opportunity to develop their fundamental movement skills, which includes opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.

In KS1 multi-skills enables our children to which include running, jumping, throwing and catching, moving on to more advance skills in KS2. From nursery to Year 6, the children develop balance, agility, flexibility, strength and co-ordina9on through high quality gymnastic sessions,


All Year 3 pupils participated in one-hour swimming lessons from specialist swimming instructors at Glass Mill Leisure Centre for the whole year. The impact of this is our children have become confident in the water, and therefore progress. At the beginning of this year 90% of children were non-swimmers, however at the end of the spring term, this was reduced to 40%. We had 74% of children who could swim 10m and 10% of children who could swim 25m +, which is a very impressive considering their starting point. The sessions were cut short due to the COVID-19  Pandemic.


All pupils from Nursery to Year 6 participated in gymnastics sessions from a specialist gymnastics instructor from Beaming Stars Gymnastics Club. Specialised gymnastic coach leads a breakfast club and lunchtime club for students in Year 2-6. The breakfast club is for our advance gymnast and the lunch club is for our progressing gymnasts. Our pupils have been involved in borough competition and each term will perform a routine in assembly to showcase their skills.

The Beaming Stars gymnastics coach provides our teachers with the opportunity to learn alongside the them. The teaching is progressive, following the Beaming Stars scheme of work. Each year group builds on prior knowledge and assessed on a half termly basis. Children who

have been identified with a natural ability, can be extended and this is where the experience of the specialist teacher has helped to develop the skills and confidence of the class teacher to ensure that children are suitably challenged.


All year groups from Nursery to year 6 have participated in dance lessons. Having a dance teacher working with the class teacher, has provided many of our pupil the opportunity to access focused dance lessons, enhancing and extending current opportunities for all children. This has led to high up take on dance enrichment clubs for different styles of dance.

Our Early years and KS1 children are introduced to some basic dance principles;

  • what you do
  • how you do it

 They are also encouraged to find how they move to the musical accompaniments. Our children develop an understanding of our ability to control their own bodies, through simple set exercises, simple shapes, mirroring (I do, you, we do) while working with a partner.

In lower KS2, our children continued to develop their action and dynamic vocabulary such as unison and canon. They created simple sequences of movement derived out of tasks. They also learn more challenging dance routines which required them to be aware of the music and other bodies in space.

Finally, upper KS2, our pupils learnt more complex exercises and movements which they had to create their own choreography in groups using some of the complex movements learnt within their own group routine. There was more emphasis on independence and personal ownership of their movement choices and how to extend those movement choices. The specialist dance teacher encouraged our children and lead more self and peer reflection to build their critical thinking skills. This is in preparation for when our pupils move to KS3.

Multi skills

Provided a much broader experience and range of activities, building on children's prior knowledge and experience from previous years. This included things such as, ball skills (basketball, football, hockey, tennis).

Stamina training, athletics, ladder work, speed stacking, skipping, hand eye coordination activities and cardio workouts.

Our competition calendar provides all year groups an opportunity to compete at a higher level and increased participation in competitive sports. Due to COVID-19 the competition calendar was cut short and we were unable to take part in any competitive competition or athletics.

 Impact in 2018/2019

At Hatcham Temple Grove, PE and school sport is seen as a key factor in providing an inclusive and exciting education. Having high quality PE lessons throughout the school, we aim to provide the opportunity for pupils to develop and become confident, competent and enthusiastic individuals, who have the skills to participate and be sports leaders in extra-curricular activities. The school sports premium was used to further enhance the PE and sports provision at Hatcham Temple Grove.

The table below shows you how we have spent the school sports premium in the academic year of 2018/19 and the impact it has had on provision, opportunity and performance. It also details what our plans are for the upcoming year.

We were able to deliver a range of high quality PE lessons, as well as provide after schools clubs for reception through to Year 6.

All Year 3 pupils participated in swimming lessons from a specialist swimming instructors at Glass Mill Leisure Centre.

All students participated in Gymnastics sessions from a specialist Gymnastics instructor from Beaming Stars Gymnastics Club. This instructor also led a Breakfast Club and lunchtime club for students in Year 2-6. These students performed a routine during an assembly to showcase the sequences they learned throughout the year.

Due to our continued association with Millwall we have engaged many students in Football during Breakfast Clubs. Girl’s Football was promoted throughout with dedicated Girl’s Football times during playtimes and with Breakfast Clubs and lunchtime clubs for Girl’s Football.

The school continued to develop their sports provisions at break time and lunchtime. More resources were purchased to be used in the playground. The lunchtime staff engaged the children in variety of different sports including Cricket, Tennis, Hockey, Basketball and Football.

Many children participated in competitive events against other schools in Lewisham Borough tournaments.  The school entered teams in Netball, Hockey, Basketball, Sports Hall Athletics, Football, Cricket, Tennis and Athletics. The school had great success in these tournaments. The following achievements were the highlights of this year’s competitions:

  • Year 3 and 4 Tennis reached the Lewisham Borough final and finished 2nd overall and went on to represent the borough in the London Youth Games
  • Year 5 and  6 Basketball finished 3rd overall
  • Year 3 and 4 Mixed Football reached the Semi Finals

  • Year 5 and  6 Girls Football reached the Quarter Finals

Other members of staff have attended competitive events in order to support children during lessons. The Year 6 students competed in the first Hatcham Temple Grove house tennis tournament. Forty students represented their house in the competition, which gave them an introduction into competitive sport with their peers. The students were also the officials for these matches, which helped improved their knowledge of the sport and increased their confidence and leadership skills.

Internal school competitions also took place between teaching staff and Year 6 students in boys and girl’s football to further strengthen the links between staff and students.

The students in EYFS and Year 1 took part in a sports day where they completed an assortment of sporting challenges and races. The Year 5 students led the activities and recoded the results. Year 2 – 6 competed in a sports day which took place at Goldsmith College. They competed in a variety of activities and races for their houses.

The school continued their rich and varied after school enrichment programme which includes Capoeira, Karate, Cheerleading, Afro Beats, Athletics, Multi Sports, Hockey, Basketball, Tennis, Badminton, Yoga, and Speed Stacking. These clubs are valuable to students who wish to participate in sport but don’t want to do so at a competitive level.
