Primary Sports Funding


The Primary Sporting Premium

This year Old Priory will receive £18, 000 from the government to improve the provision of PE and Sport.

£3500 of this money was used to fund our affiliation to the Plymouth School Sports Partnership.

Through this we receive professional development opportunities, participation in competitions against other schools from across the city, promotion of the Sainsbury’s School Values and access to Junior and Community Sports Leaders from our local secondary schools.

In addition we are also planning to:-

~Provide opportunities for SEND pupils to compete with other schools across the city.

~Provide additional activities and aspirational opportunities for Gifted and Talented children.

~Obtain coaching from and links to local sports clubs to signpost children to activities they can continue with outside of the school day.

~Provide training for our Y6 children to be Play Leaders and Bronze Ambassadors.

~Ensure our Meal Time Assistants are up to date with their Positive Play Training.

We have already seen an increase in participation levels at after school clubs because of the way this funding has been used and were successful in achieving our Gold School Games Kite Mark again in 2018.


Please see the plan below to see how we plan to spend this money this year to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport.
