Sport Premium

Physical Education at Masham School



We strive in delivering outstanding PE that allows pupils to be physically active, thrive in a broad range of physical activities and engage in competitive sports in a safe and challenging environment.

Our intent for PE is for children to:

  • Thoroughly enjoy being physically active and have the confidence to participate in different sports. Therefore, be able to adopt a healthy lifestyle- one where they can discover their talents and have a life-long love of sport
  • Practise skills in a range of activities ensuring knowledge progression and sequencing of concepts is endorsed throughout
  • To have the highest of expectations of themselves when performing these activities individually, in small groups and within a team
  • Develop high levels of physical fitness through being active for sustained periods of time
  • Understand the important of leading a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and healthy nutrition
  • Be advocates of PE and confidently talk about their achievements

The use of external sports coaches (Sporting Start) alongside the development of the school staff, ensures PE is delivered to a clear and structured timetable, in line with the National Curriculum, resulting in an effective curriculum implementation.


  • Using an effective Long Term Plan for teachers to ensure pupils have access to broad range of physical activities
  • Creative and innovative planning that ensures pupils’ progression in knowledge and consistency in teaching throughout school and challenge for all
  • Investing in the School Sports Partnership to allow all pupils to participate in competitions with local schools
  • Investing in highly specialist PE teachers to work alongside teachers, ensuring teacher remain up-skilled by providing them with a wealth of fun and innovative teaching ideas (Sporting Start)
  • Providing opportunities for sporting professionals to visit the pupils and inspire them by sharing their achievements
  • Sports Leaders promoting positive attitudes towards PE and motivating their peers into becoming passionate, respectful young sportspeople.

The PE Co-ordinator, the Head Teacher, and the Governors regularly review and quality assure the subject to ensure that it is implemented sufficiently well. The co-ordinator will make changes to keep in line with the National Curriculum Objectives, plus the expertise of the teaching staff will be able to adapt accordingly, to meet the needs of their children, and to link in with other subjects within their classroom topics. Additional support or CPD will be made available to any staff that feels the need to develop their knowledge further.


The impact of our PE approach is that children:

  • Make outstanding progress in PE and enjoy participating in sport
  • Are physically active
  • Understand the importance of exercise and a healthy lifestyle
  • Have increased confidence in a range of sports
  • Take up a variety of sports. This is enabled by the nurture and relationships between staff and children.
  • Talk confidently about PE and their learning


What is the Sports Premium?

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools and it must improve the quality of sport and PE for our pupils. This year (2020-2021) Masham has been allocated £16,967.

Historic reporting

2014 / 2015 Funding and its impact

The allocation for 2014/15 was £8,440 

Sports premium funding was spent on CPD for staff, transportation to a range of sporting events, high quality PE equipment for all ages, training for PE subject leader subsidising clubs. The impact of this was that pupils and staff worked with a range of coaches and athletes for sports including: cricket, tag-rugby, athletics, football, bob-sleigh, tennis, dance, orienteering and outdoor education. 

2015 / 2016 Funding and its impact

The allocation for 2015/16 was £8,470 

Staff continue to enjoy team teaching with sporting professionals, this has enabled PE lessons to remain outstanding and given the staff the confidence to teach a variety of skills to the children. We have provided a wide selection of sporting opportunities for each child both in and out of school. This therefore has given each child the chance to find an element of PE where they feel they are succeeding. From Early Years to Year 6, each child has a personal fitness book to track their fitness journey as they progress through the school. We have ensured that the ‘Wilderness’ has been fitted with an anti-slip surface; enabling children to fully access the outdoor education aspect of PE, specifically orienteering, fine and gross motor skills and coordination. Importantly, the children at Masham Church of England Primary feel that PE has helped to boost their self-esteem and fitness and also helped them to understand how we can all work together to improve and succeed.  

2016/17 Funding and its impact

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools and it must improve the quality of sport and PE for our pupils. This academic year Masham has been allocated £8400.

The money will be used so that:

  • All children will find an aspect of physical education which inspires them – tag rugby, karate, archery, squash, dance, skipping, boxing to name a few.
  • That we maintain, and aim to increase, the number of children who are given the opportunity to compete in a range of sporting opportunities. We will ensure we enter as many cluster led competitions allowing children to work as a team to compete and support each other.
  • All staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development. All teaching staff have the opportunity to attend professional development courses and improve upon their own skill levels in teaching PE. In addition, qualified sports leaders will come into school and team teach with our staff in order to improve quality of provision. 
  • The pupils have access to high quality resources.
