Sports Premium

Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see the financial breakdown for our Sports' Premium Funding, the impact the funding has had and to see the record for our Year 6 swimmers. 

We use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education, physical activity and sport we offer.

This means that we use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that we already offer.
  • build capacity and capability within our school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining us in future years.

Sep 2020 - July 2021

Our PE Premium projects and their impact:

Development of Aspirations and Careers (Visitors from Industries have not taken place due to COVID restrictions)

Children will be given access to specific employment industries, with some being in sports and sports science, to learn the finer details of and qualifications necessary to obtain a career in that field. Pupils will be surveyed to identify the careers they are interested in. 


  • Children will have their aspirations raised regarding a career in sport.
  • Pupils will identify the skills and qualifications needed for a specific career path they are interested in.
  • Increased engagement with school and learning.


  • Children are more aware of the opportunities for employment around them and able to plan their future academic or vocational paths in advance within sport or sports' science.

After-School Clubs

Go Geronimo will be providing weekly after school clubs for children in all Key Stages, primarily around Multi-Skills and Fitness. These clubs will be heavily subsidised by the PE Premium money and be offered to children at a maximum cost of 50p per session.

  • Children are engaging in further opportunities provided by the school to develop the social and physical abilities. 

Enrichment Days

Go Geronimo and school staff will be providing an enrichment day each half term, such as Tchoukball and VX Rock-It Ball. These days will allow every child in the school to try their hand at a new sport free of charge. The children are then given linked routes for each sport to a local club, if their interests are stimulated by the taster sessions or if popularity dictates a club is needed to be established at school.


  • Access to high quality sporting experiences was provided to the pupils.
  • Access enabled to obscure sports not available within the curriculum, which led to new extra-curricular clubs being established for all Junior pupils. Very popular in Year 4 and Year 5.
  • Increased engagement in sporting activities.


  • All pupils get to experience less common sports, which generate interest and opportunity towards something new and stimulate interests in future pursuits.

Sports' Holiday Clubs

Go Geronimo will host sports' holiday clubs in the February (closed due to pandemic) and June 2021 half-term holidays to increase access to sport and to improve the fitness of our pupils.

Staff CPD Training

External specialists will be paid with PE Premium funding to support teachers to develop their skills in areas where subject knowledge can be improved, such as Cricket. Go Geronimo will also be paid to upskill our staff to ensure improvements to the quality of teaching, for example PE Premium was spent on acquiring training for the After-School Club staff to increase the physical activity on offer to all those pupils attending this wrap-around care provision.  


  • Improved quality of teaching.
  • Increased involvement in sporting activities outside of the classroom.
  • Increased attendance at after-school club due to increased popularity.

Equipment needed to enable after-school clubs, fixtures and sporting lettings to be able to operate all year round, such as floodlights.  Physical development resources purchased to improve the EYFS outdoor area and provide more challenge in developing pupil abilities in this important strand.
