Sports Premium

The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum from 2013 to schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. This scheme has now been extended for the 2017-18 Academic Year.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools, to make additional and sustainable improvements to the school's sports provision.

St Mary’s was allocated £9,815 for the 2013-14 Academic Year and a further £9,800 was allocated in each of for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 Academic Years.  Funding received in  2016-17 was £9,795. The 2017-18 expected amount was £9,815.  In July 2017 the Government announced that this amount would be doubled (to £19,630).

Impact of Spending

Consumable Equipment


New high quality equipment for use in lessons and extra-curricular activities, including a range of equipment for use in the new school wide orienteering scheme of work. This was also used in the school-wide orienteering inter-house, in which all the children took part.  

Permanent Equipment

(Hall Floor, Netball Posts and equipment for gymnastics) 


The new hall floor is sprung and is suitable for gymnastics and dance, as well as other areas of PE. This has meant all children are able to take part in indoor PE lessons in a safe and suitable environment.

Tournament Entry and Requirements for Tournaments


Extra tournaments have been entered beyond the South Tandridge sports cluster, resulting in a greater number of pupils taking part in extra-curricular sporting activities. The year 5 football team won the Surrey Cup, whilst a year 5 & 6 football team reached the regional finals.

Outside Coaching Opportunities


Specialist coaches have been used within school for extra-curricular clubs, bringing specialist coaching knowledge to the clubs, which have proved extremely popular. The netball club resulted in an A,B and C team in the level 1 tournament, with one team progressing to the regional district finals. Ten year 6 pupils were trained to be Young Sports Leaders and held their own multi-skills event for younger children.

Total Sports Premium Expenditure for 16-17 Academic Year


The school will be re-applying for the Sportsmark Gold award and hope to maintain the gold level of award once again.

The Sports Premium budget for the 2017-18 academic year will be allocated towards the installation of a Multi-Use-Games-Area(MUGA)within the school grounds, allowing for a wider range of sporting provision all year round, both within PE lessons and as extra-curricular activities.
