PE and Sport Premium

Sports Premium Grant for School  2022 – 2023


The Sports Premium Grant is a lump sum payment to all maintained and state-funded schools in England.  Nightingale Primary School prides itself on promoting a range of activities through the taught curriculum, extra-curricular activities, visits and competitions to promote life-long healthy habits.

Sports Premium received in 2022 – 2023 £19,870.00


We support the government’s initiative to combat obesity and build daily activity into the daily lives of our children through a varied P.E. curriculum, extra-curricular activities including lunchtimes but also through an activity led curriculum.

Our Primary Sports Premium funding has enabled us to continue to offer swimming lessons to our children from age 6-11 in our on-site swimming pool lead by qualified swimming instructors.  This has ensured that our swimming data is very strong when children leave in year 6.

Nightingale Primary School is supplementing our funding with additional monetary resources from the main budget with an aim to increasing opportunities for pupil engagement with physical activities, across the whole school day and after school, also including lunch time provisions.  Through these increased opportunities for participation pupils will also have wider opportunities to take part in inter school competition.  In measuring impact, it is important to build a picture of impact across different pupil groups.  A funding commitment has been made across the following 5 indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy, active lifestyles.
  2. The profile of P.E. and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupil
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport
