Sports Funding Statement

Purpose of the Primary PE and Sports Premium

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


The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following key indicators:

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


    Kettering School Sports Partnership & Coaching Sessions:

  • Our school has been actively involved in a variety of sporting activities including football, tag rugby, sports hall athletics, swimming, tennis and cricket. Children have participated in sporting events both across the town and within school.
  • Our Y5/6 pupils have trained as Sports Leaders and now support the lunchtime staff by leading sporting activities on the playground at lunchtime. They report on our sporting fixtures and are ambassadors for our younger pupils.

     Sports funding of specialist coaches led to successes in competitions (eg winners of the Kettering District Swimming Gala leading to district representation at the County Gala)

     Successfully secured School Games Quality Mark at Bronze Standard meeting many of the criteria for Silver standard which will be pursued next academic year.

    Our pupils enjoy the sporting activities they are engaged in and know the positive impact sport is having on their health and future lifestyles.


We will continue to use the funding to enhance the sporting provision made within Hawthorn over the coming year.
