Pupil premium and sports premium

Sports Premium and PE Information

Our Sports Premium allowance for the academic year 2023-24 is £16,934.  The Sports Premium will be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer, to enable the development of an active, healthy lifestyle.

We will achieve this by developing the PE and sport activities we offer at Middleton-in-Teesdale. The use of the Sports Premium this year will build on our capacity and capability within the school, to ensure that the improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

The use of the Primary PE and Sports Premium is to enable pupils to be provided with the skills and knowledge of how to have a healthy and active lifestyle. This will be achieved by pupils having more opportunities in a range of sports in and out of school, and as a result, motivating the children to embrace a physically active lifestyle.

It is expected that schools will see improvements against the following 5 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 school sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. increased participation in competitive sport

Sustainability Statement

  • Our children will continue to increase their skills and abilities in a range of different sports and activities which will challenge them and prepare them for later in life.
  • Our children will develop a range of skills including teamwork, leadership, respect and sportsmanship which they can take with them and develop not only in sport but in other areas of the curriculum and the wider community
  • Teaching staff will use the skills and knowledge gained from the range of CPD opportunities attended and continue to build on this knowledge in future years.
  • Subject Leaders have further developed their knowledge and skills to lead P.E and will continue to build on their experiences already gained. This will include sharing expertise with other members of staff to build on the current provision and ensure high quality teaching.
