The government is providing ring-fenced funding towards developing sport to all schools of £150,000,000. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Our funding comes directly to the school and is spent on improving the quality of PE and school sport for all our children.
As parents are aware, we have provided many varied opportunities for the children to receive major games coaching in recent years. We have also provided a range of after-school activities that are available due to the time generously given by staff and voluntary helpers also.

In 2018 / 19 the Sports Premium allocation of £17,790 was spent in a variety of ways:

2018 – 2019 Impact
In 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019 All Saints was delighted to be awarded ‘The Sainsbury’s School Games Mark’ for recognition of our commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education. The school achieved the mark at the highest level - GOLD.

- We have a wide range of competitive sporting activities on offer.
- Over 68% of our children engaged in PE extra-curricular activities or competitive sport last year.
- There has been a 14% increase in KS1 children taking part in after school clubs.
- Greater staff confidence in planning and delivery of PE lessons - teachers and teaching assistants.
- All areas of the PE curriculum are at least good.
- The proportion of outstanding teaching is increasing as a result of team teaching with expert coaches.
- Increased links with specialist organisations and coaches
- Pupils who are more able in sport are given the chance to participate against others of a similar ability and potential
- Pupils will have high self-esteem and sense of pride for their teams.
- 2019 summative assessments show that the vast majority of children in school achieve age related expectation with a significant proportion working a greater depth.
2019 – 2020 Spending
Our PE, Sports and Health Action plan shows how we will make further improvements to our sports offering, and the impact this will have on our children throughout 2019 / 2020.
The table below shows how our school is planning to spend the £18,000 allocation of sports funding in the 2019/ 20 school year.
Year Six Swimming Competency
The school is required to publish information about meeting Natioanl Curriculum requirements related to swimming and water safety.
The partnership with the WLSP has enabled our school to create a sustainable curriculum for all the children by investing in the professional development of staff to deliver high quality PE lessons. The Lancashire Scheme of work provides a consistent approach to teaching PE across the school, resulting in the quality of children’s learning and development. Through assessments, club registers and School Games Mark Application we are able to collect valuable data.
Data collected from 2018 / 2019 shows us already the impact of the Sports Premium on pupil progress in PE and involvement in sport and clearly identifies strengths and areas for development.
95% of children achieved expected or above across the PE curriculum and 68% of KS2 children attended an extra curricular club.
