Sport Premium funding


Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. This substantial sum of £150m per year goes directly to schools in autumn, running from September to August. The new ‘ring-fenced’ funding – only to be spent on PE and sport – will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching and teacher training to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.


At Icknield School we have used our allocation of £5,128 to:

  • ensure that swimming provision for all children is maintained. Learning to swim is a valuable life skill and we aim for all children to swim 25 metres before they leave us
  • employ a specialist coach to work with children in the lunch break to encourage  positive attitudes sport and teamwork
  • arrange intra -school competition
  • buy into the School Sports Partnership to access events and competitions
  • provide extracurricular activities for children
  • develop children’s and staff expertise in dance and gym
  • work alongside local schools to meet for Sport Festivals and matches
  • arrange extra, additional opportunities to try new activities on Creativity Days
  • provide opportunities for children with talents to access support
  • closely monitor the quality of provision across clubs and lesson
