Primary PE and Sport Premium

Primary PE and Sport Premium is a ring-fenced funding available for primary schools to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their children.


All pupils leaving primary school be physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

OBJECTIVE: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

The Government expect indicators of such improvement to include:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

Physical Education is very important at Pimperne CE VC Primary School. The P.E. and Sport Co-ordinator is responsible to the Governors for developing sport and effective use of Sport Premium Funding. At Pimperne, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.

2016-17 Achievements

Whilst Pimperne’s sporting successes (listed below) speak for themselves, it has been the sportsmanship, determination and positive attitude to team mates and the opposition from our pupils which has impressed me most this year. Every child who has been lucky enough to represent the school has been an ambassador, trying their hardest to win, but accepting it when things haven’t gone their way.

It has also been staggering – each week during Celebration Assembly – to hear about the sporting triumphs of our pupils outside of school. Unfortunately, we do not have enough space to list all of these here. However, rest assured, the whole school are so proud of our pupils’ achievements in the swimming pool, in the gym, on horseback, on the football pitch, in Park Run, on the rugby pitch, on the netball court, on the tennis court, dancing, cheerleading, doing martial arts, cycling, on the cricket pitch ……

A positive attitude towards sport is embedded in the school. Many of those who have not been lucky enough to represent the school (yet) demonstrate sporting ability every week in PE lessons. We are also regularly reminded that you do not have to be top class athlete to enjoy and benefit from taking part in sport. In addition, all sports clubs and associations need coaches, adjudicators and organisers; we have plenty of pupils who regularly demonstrate  that they have some talent in these important areas of sport.

Well done to you all; keep the Pimperne flag flying!
