Sports Premium


PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of our school.

All children and young people should live healthy active lives. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people should take part in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day. 

The Childhood Obesity Plan says that at least 30 minutes of daily activity should take place in schools.

Schools have a key role to play in achieving this aim. This is particularly true of primary schools where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity are embedded. All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.

We believe that exercise and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and, through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.

There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. Furthermore, sport also provides a healthy environment within which young people can learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.

Since 2013, the Government has provided 'Sport Premium' funding, specifically aimed at improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in all schools.

Schools should use the PE and sport premium funding to help achieve these aims. It must not be used for core-type school activities. They should use it to make additional and sustainable improvements to the PE, sport and physical activity they provide, such as:

  • funding high-quality PE and sport for at least 2 hours a week, complemented by a wide range of extracurricular sport and competitive opportunities
  • providing or improving equal access to sport for boys and girls

Schools should prioritise PE and sport premium spending to improve in the following 5 key areas:

  • increasing all staff’s confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport
  • increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and sport
  • raising the profile of PE and sport across the school, to support whole school improvement
  • offer a broader and more equal experience of a range of sports and physical activities to all pupils
  • increase participation in competitive sport

For further details on the PE and sport premium for primary schools, please visit the Government website:


We are using the Sport Premium to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision in the following ways:


  • Provide Continued professional development for staff in school to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching different aspects of the PE curriculum.


  • To support regular sport tournaments, festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages. We work in partnership with Redcar and Eston School Sport Partnership    which has given our pupils the opportunity to participate in a range of sporting activities and competitions.  


  • We invest in high-quality visiting sports coaches to run clubs, competitions, and to increase pupils’ participation in in-school and inter-school games competitions.  We provide after-school sport clubs, perhaps in sports that the children would not usually have access to. 


  • Since covid we have focused our core swimming offer on our Year 6 children however this year we are implementing our two year swimming plan to lower the core offer of swimming to our younger Key Stage 2 pupils.   Our aim is that by July 2025 100% of pupils leaving Teesville Academy in Year 6 will be able to meet National requirements in swimming.  We greatly value this, because not only does it provide us with access to high-quality swimming facilities but teaches children a vital life skill.
