PE and Sport Premium Funding
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding from the government based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Last year 2021-22, and this school year 2022-23, our school received £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
At St Wilfrid’s we use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. This means we use the PE and Sport Premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer
- make improvements to PE and sport now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
- commit to quality CPD for our teachers each year to ensure improvements are sustainable
In the last school year (2021-22) we received £17,800. In the current school year (2022-23) we will receive £18,200.
The impact of this funding can usually be seen by our school maintaining its School Games Silver Mark and the high levels of children achieving age related expectations in PE by the end of the academic year. It is also evident by the amount of extra-curricular clubs we run and inter-school competitions we enter.

We are also required to publish the percentage of pupils within your year 6 cohort who met the national curriculum requirement to:
- swim competently, confidently, and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres (100% July 2022)
- use a range of strokes effectively (100% July 2022 )
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations (100% July 2022)
In addition to their curriculum PE lessons we offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, ran by our staff, free of charge, to pupils throughout school.
