Welcome to Forest Fields Primary and Nursery School

Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium

The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/2014, 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. This is to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.


All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils (as reported in the 2013 census) will receive the funding.


The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. Forest Fields will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils participation in PE and school sport.



All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Therefore each year Forest Fields will receive approx. £9500.   


With this funding Forest Fields will:

  • Aim to provide a wide and varied range of PE and sporting experiences for all children.
  • Ensure all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
  • Increase participation in both intra and inter school competitions
  • Encourage some of our children to further develop leadership skills through our ‘Young Leader’ training
  • Provide staff with training opportunities and continued professional development
  • Make use of collaborative and partnership working
  • Continue to forge links with other community providers and local clubs so that children will be encouraged to participate in sport after school
  • Consistently promote healthy lifestyles that will include input and guidance from outside agencies.


The impact of the Sport Premium funding will be measured through rigorous self-evaluation, and will include: identifying and monitoring the number of children that have participate in either intra or inter school competitions; analysing the sporting opportunities that are offered to the children and in doing so, assess the impact in relation to children’s attitudes, confidence and performance; highlighting the number of pupils that have increased participation in sport by accessing out of hours clubs and also evaluating the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
