PE, Physical Activity and Sport

Primary School PE & Sport Funding: using it to make a difference at Harehills Primary School

What is Primary School PE & Sport Funding?

As part of the legacy of the 2012 London Olympics, the government is providing £150 million of funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is allocated to primary schools in order for them to embed the provision of high quality PE, sport and physical activity in schools.


The additional funding is allocated to enable schools to increase opportunities for children, parents/carers and the local community to take part in PE, physical activity and sport. These opportunities, as part of a broader promotion of physical and emotional health and well-being are expected to increase attainment and lead to accelerated progress for pupils.


We have a clear strategic approach to the use of our School PE & Sport Funding and plans are integrated into wider school improvement systems and approaches. Robust leadership ensures that the funding has the necessary impact.

 Strategies showing an impact to date include:

  • Creating the PE Apprentice role, which has given more opportunities for children to engage in extra-curricular activities and offers an extra tier of focussed support in .
  • The Family Funs Project which promotes physical activity at home targeting children in Nursery and EYFS
  • Using the Real PE scheme of work to ensure high quality lesson planning is available to all teachers. The Real PE scheme develops a child's physical literacy as well using games and sport as a tool to teach positive values.
  • The PE Subject Lead sharing practice with the PE Assistant who has then cascaded this high quality practice to other parts of the school.
  • Refresher training for all staff on the Real PE.
  • Structured playtimes including zoned areas to maximise all areas in the school to increase physical activity.
  • Developing opportunities for children to take part in a wide range of physical activity and competitive sports.



Plans for future funding

Our identified priorities for 2017/18 include:

  • All pupils receive two hours of high quality PE
  • All colleagues to receive refresher PE training.
  • A reliable, easy to use assessment process is developed.
  • Develop the role of the PE Assistant

Provision for PE, sport and physical activity at Harehills Primary School

PE, physical activity and sport play and important part in the life of Harehills Primary School and our children have access to at least two hours of high quality PE each week. Pupils also have access to other sport and physical activity through our extra-curricular opportunities before, during and after school.

We firmly believe that, given opportunities to take part in a range of activities – those of a competitive nature, physical activity, high quality PE provision and team based sports - children will practice the life skills of empathy, resilience, meeting a challenge and developing high aspirations for themselves.



After school clubs

We run a range of after school clubs including badminton, football, cricket, netball. Find out more by clicking the more button. More


The impact of the Sports Premium is evaluated in a number of ways including:

  • Analysis of the increased numbers of children engaged in sport and physical activity.
  • An increase in the variety of sports opportunities available in school.
  • Pupil voice regarding children’s understanding of the importance of a healthy diet, regular exercise and their enjoyment of Physical Education in school.
  • Implementation of skills gained by teaching staff on specific sporting courses. 



As part of our commitment to our development of PE, physical activity and sport provision, we have committed to using a portion of our funding to become a partner in the Leeds City Wide offer. Several of the developments above are linked to opportunities brought about by membership to the city wide offer.


We are proud to be members of the Youth Sport Trust and participate in the Sainsbury's School Games.
