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.

Stretegies showing an impact to date include:
- Working with a local authority consultant employing expert advice to evaluate the school’s current strengths and weaknesses in PE, sport and physical activity, and implement plans for improvement.
- Working with a local authority consultant to procure quality-assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE, sport and physical activity.
- Using specialist PE teachers or qualified coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE.
- Enhancing our curriculum to ensure links between PE, sport, physical activity and life skills across learning can be maximised. This includes the identification and use of SEAL learning objectives to compliment development of PE skills within lessons.
- Working as part of the active schools initiative.
- 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 2015/16 include:
- Further development of staff skills and confidence through the provision of bespoke CPD sessions with a specific focus on teaching and learning in PE, with links to the ‘Real PE’ scheme of work.
- Increase pupil participation in extra-curricular sports clubs and activities.
- Increase participation in intra and inter-school competitions.
- Use of staff with a specialism in PE to work alongside teachers to embed high quality learning experiences for all pupils.
- Review and extend the outdoor provision which can be accessed at lunchtimes and play times.
- Forge links with PE teachers in local secondary schools to help primary staff improve their PE and sports provision.
- Embed the roles of Young Ambassadors in upper Key Stage 2.
- Establish strong, sustainable partnerships with local community sports clubs where no links have been made in the past.
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 Netball, Juggling and Zumba. 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.
