P.E and Sports Premium Funding

The sports premium grant is provided jointly by the departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is given to schools to improve provision of Physical Education (P.E) and sport in primary schools. Primary schools receive a lump sum of money, plus an amount based on the number of pupils in the school.​​

At TMBSS, we believe that offering children a wide range of high quality experiences is very important; to this extent we have already been using some of our budget to fund a range of sports activities over the year. However, the sports premium funding has allowed us to supplement our current offer with new activities and opportunities.

Impact of the funding

Key Stage 2 children were asked what they enjoyed about P.E and what it had taught them.


"My favourite sport that we learned this year was hockey because it was new to me and I learned how to stand, pass, and shoot. It was a sport I had never learned before."

"P.E teaches me how to work together with other people in teams, which is something I couldn't do before."

"Running relay races in athletics taught me to work together as a team and not to give up."
