Sport Premium Funding

2017/18 Funding - We are awaiting confirmation of this year's funding.  Once this is received, details of proposed spending will be posted here.

To ensure the improvement of Physical Education and sport in primary schools, the government have committed to provide additional funding.

The expected sport funding Keighley St Andrew’s will receive for the academic year 2016/17 is £9740. This funding is ring fenced and therefore can only be spent on PE and sport provision. .

How we are spending our funding:

With the given sport funding we have been able to invest in a number of areas which as a result have greatly improved the quality of teaching within PE lessons, swimming and greater opportunities for children to fully participate in extracurricular sport. .We aim to establish a culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport.

Use of funding



Sports Resources

Additional sports resources have been bought to ensure curriculum delivery and sports clubs can be run i.e bicycles. 

We are also enriching the outdoor provision to allow children to participate in more sporting  activities during play-times: Skipping ropes, playground sport equipment, scooters etc.  This is sustained & improved by ensuring the Play Leader monitors provision and use of equipment.                                                                                                                                   


Specialist PE teacher.







Subject Leadership  

Quality of provision in  PE will be sustained and improved. Our specialist PE teacher will work with classes across the school to provide support and development for less experienced  teachers 

Teachers’ skills in teaching a range of sports will  improve because the specialist teacher is able to give support with knowledge and understanding of a sport to assist planning, teaching and assessment. They will also ensure lessons are engaging,  inclusive and provide additional challenge for those who show potential to develop their skills in sport to a higher level than could be managed by a class teacher working alone..

The specialist teacher will facilitate opportunities for children to  take part in competitions in local schools in sports

Quality of teaching in PE will be sustained and improved through investment in new curriculum planning.  "Inspire to Move" being implemented and monitored by the PE Leader.  "Inspire to Move" offer online support, personal additional plans and skills development..





Bradford Sport Coaches.

 Specialists in identified sports come in to lead lessons and provide CPD for class teachers to improve their knowledge and skills in specific sports and to plan for progression of skills.

They also lead some of the after school sports clubs

After School Karate coaching. Several pupils have been inspired

  to continue with additional private lessons outside of school time.






Swimming lessons

We offer much more continuity in swimming. Year 5 participate in swimming throughout the whole year. The result of this is that children are becoming much more confident in the water. This is particularly noticeable for those children who do not have the opportunity to swim outside of school.



Fit Week and
