Sports Premium

Each school is given a sports premium fund from the government which must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2015 to 2016 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

In 2015-2016 Brooklands was given £9500 to continue the development of PE and sport in our school. 

We will be spending this funding in the following ways.



  • Our aim when allocating the pupil premium funding is to develop staff practice across the school to ensure that high quality teaching is taking place.
  • We also use specialist trained PE coaches to deliver high quality provision and upskill out teaching staff.
  • That the school has all the necessary equipment to compete in a range of sports.
  • That we give all children the opportunity to compete in school as well as having selective competitive sports based on ability.


How was the 2015-2016 money spent?

Sport and fitness are very important priorities at Brooklands so we regularly spend more than our £9500 allocation for Sports Premium. Here is a breakdown of our spending.

Sustainability of Change

Brooklands model of spend on Sports Premium money means that our approach allows us to consider sustainability of the changes we have made. In 2016 - 2017 we are making a number of introductions which will help ensure we are able to continue to enhance the increase of physical activity in children and  promote healthy lifestyles. Within Science teaching, the children are developing their understanding of the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet and regular fitness. The children take part in daily physical activity over and above the statutory PE curriculum. Year 6 monitors are being trained up to run lunch time sports activities as an incentive for developing leaders of the future. So far this has included the introduction of playground buddies to ensure inclusion of all children and active participation in this unstructured time to the pupils day. We have monitors who organise and supervise new table tennis sessions and we are training children up to become referees for lunchtime competitive sports. Our pupils are also actively encouraged to develop new ideas and have formed lunchtime dance groups, basket ball teams and class games. Being part of the Maritime academy means we have instant access to a number of pupils from different schools and have a range of inter school competitions as well as access to transport at significantly reduced costs due to our Maritime links.
