Sports Premium

At Knop Law Primary School we believe that  physical education is a vital and unique contributor to our children’s physical health and well-being and aim to provide all of our children with high quality physical activity experiences that will lead to lifelong participation and fitness.


For the current school year we continue to be fully committed to using the government funding to its optimum. We will continue to provide high quality PE lessons within our school taught by our own class teachers alongside our own specialist PE teacher and external sports coaches. We will also strive to improve upon the number of opportunities we can give our children to be involved in and compete within competitive sports within the city and within our TRUST of schools.


PE Premium Allocation 2016-17: £9,854.


‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improvingtheir provision of PE and Sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’. (DfE June 2013) Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January 2016.  All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.  

The 7 Government priorities for use of the Sports Premium funding were as follows.

  • Achieving high quality PE
  • Increasing participation and inclusion
  • Promoting healthy, active lifestyles
  • Providing competitive school sport
  • Developing leadership, the curriculum and subject profile
  • Contributing to pupils’ overall achievement
  • Developing partnerships

For the academic year 2016/17 at Knop Law we have split our funding between:

  • Achieving high quality PE lessons for all.
  • Increasing participation and inclusion
  • Providing competitive school sporting opportunities for all.
  • Promoting healthy Active Lifestyles
  • Developing leadership of the subject thus incorporating developing partnerships within the wider sporting community.
