PE Premium

Physical Education is an integral part of life at St Michael’s Infant School. Children are naturally full of energy and we aim to take this and develop it to give them a life-long love of being physical and living a healthy lifestyle.

What is Sports Premium?

In April 2013 the Government announced new funding for PE and sports provision in schools, all school receive a sum of money annually in order to improve PE and Sport within the school. There are criteria set as to how this money can be spent- one of the main points is that the funding has an impact on all children that attend the school, and this impact is lasting for future pupils.

How has the funding previously been spent?

Evaluation of children's needs indicated that many children start school lacking in upper body and core strength, so improving this, as well as general stamina, has been the priority. Over the previous years we have used the funding in a variety of ways such as installing new playground equipment, purchase new games and gymnastics equipment, staff training, bikeability scheme, daily mile and healthy activity weeks.

Link to 6 key indicators



Year R Balance & Ride  Scheme


This scheme teaches the year R children how to ride a bike and is something that has been carried out in school for a few years now.

The impact of this has been on developing children’s gross motor movements and balance.



Balance bikes and scooters

These bikes will be used by children with specific physical needs and were purchased by the SENCO. They will allow children with gross motor/ balance needs to use them in a safe environment.

The impact of this has been on developing children’s gross motor movements and balance.

INSET day dance Training

The subject leader spent the morning with a member of the HANTS PE team looking at the PE overviews, assessment, progression of skills and PE statement. The afternoon was spent on a practical staff dance training session as this is an area that we are focusing on.

This has helped to support staff understanding and confidence when teaching dance and developing the children’s skills.

Forest School initial site visit and planning.

We are hoping to develop our outside area to allow for either Forest School or Outdoor Learning Provision. Staff from Busstop pre-school forest school visited the site to advise on how this could be achieved.

The impact has been on the planning of the outdoor area so that children are learning actively outside.

Replacement gym equipment

1 mat and 2 benches needed to be replaced to allow for whole class gymnastics teaching . Impact on development of skills during gymnastic sessions using safe resources.



Fencing for outdoor area and shelters

As part of our outdoor learning provision we are creating a fenced off area that will form the outdoor classroom. Fencing the area off will prevent younger siblings using the area before and after school and will ensure that our children have a safe area to work. The area will also have a small shelter for a small group of children to work/play in, and a larger structure that will accommodate a whole class. This area will be used for children to actively learn (cross-curricular) which will be especially important for year 2 who do not have any access to an outside area other than playtimes. The impact of the outdoor area is on children’s ability to learn actively outside so that they are keeping fit and being healthy.

PE scheme of work- 3 years

Purchasing a scheme of work ensures that we have detailed planning available for all staff. It will also ensure that there is progression across each of the taught areas of PE. The impact of this has been that there is a clear progression of skills and knowledge across all areas of PE.
