Primary PE Premium and Sports Premium


Dorchester Primary will target expenditure in the following 4 key areas:

Development; Training for staff- up skilling staff in identified areas of teaching and learning around PE

Opportunity; providing pupils with opportunities to be involved in all aspects of physical education and competitions

Experiences; create lasting experiences that will inspire and motivate pupils to commit to lifelong involvement in physical education

Legacy; create a sustainable ethos / skill base amongst staff together with a suitable resource base to continue the delivery of high quality physical education post grant funding.

How to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium

Dorchester Primary uses the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. This means we use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport  activities that our school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, we use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs, sports leaders
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the school games
  • run sports activities with other schools
  • provide inter school competition throughout the year

School Development Priorities

Actions to Achieve


Actual Impact (following Review) on pupils

Next Steps

To further develop the partnership between Tigers Trust and Kingswood to increase staff skills (as well as other opportunities that may benefit the school).

Liase with staff and outside agencies regarding the planning and teaching of a variety of sports and activities that meet the needs of the children. Make sure that the timetable is altered so all staff and children can benefit.

On-going throughout the year

Partnerships had the highest impact in years 1, 4 and 6 as the data shows that these year groups have the largest number of children working at ARE.

Without the partnerships, internal best practice will be used internally to ensure that staff development continues in particularly years 2 and 3.

To provide extracurricular activities and clubs for children of different ages.

Discuss with staff their availability to run clubs as well as linking up with any other outside agencies that can come in. Provide opportunities for children to take part in activities they would normally not have access to.

Beginning of each term.

A range of clubs have been implemented this year. 3 from outside agencies and the rest done by the staff.

(see appendix 1)

The numbers of attendees were not as high as anticipated this year. Next year, continue offering successful clubs but increase the variety of clubs during and after school (following staff, parent and children survey) allowing a higher number of children to engage in activities tailored to the children’s likes.

To continue to develop competitive opportunities (in particular with HCAT) across the school especially KS1.

Meet with HCAT coordinators to discuss competitions. Continue to develop relationship with Hull Active Schools and attend the competitions they have on offer. Enable children to compete in a variety of different sports and activities.

On-going throughout the year

All children from KS1 and upper KS2 have taken part in at least one competition this year. A selection of children from 3/4 have also taken part in at least one.


Continue to develop participation in competitions across HCAT schools by ensuring leaders arrange a wider variety of sports in the trust, select children to participate in the Hull Active Schools partnership competitions and a wider selection of children to be chosen to participate.
