Sports Premium Overview

At Netherthorpe Primary School we believe that Sport and PE lay an important role in helping children lead healthy and active lifestyles. We understand and continue to pay attention to research that suggests a healthy body supports having a healthy mind: both from the point of view of academic achievement and also emotional well-being.


We are committed to using the Sports Premium funding to:

develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers

build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

In order to enable us to access a range of sport related opportunities, we buy a package from the Forge Sports Partnership. This connects us with sporting activities across Sheffield and provides us with expertise and links to a range of sport experts.


Sports Premium Grant

Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the time of the January census each year.

Our income from the Sports Premium for this academic year is:

September 2022-March 2023        £ 10,325.00

April 2023-August 2023                  £   7,375.00


Total Income 2022-2023                   £ 17,700.00

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is 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.
