Sports Premium


The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 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 headteachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

·         hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
·         supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
·         paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
·         providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
·          running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
·         buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
·         providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
·         pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.


PE and Sport Premium


Our first allocated ‘PE and Sports Premium’ was used to improve the quality of the extra-curricular provision provided to our children.  Even though children make a contribution for the clubs that they attend, we still spend £4,761 (including gymnastics) on subsidising the clubs with specialist coaches.  This has led to an increase in the percentage of children who have spaces available to attend a school based club and also in the percentage of places actually taken up.

£1,100 was spent on paying into the Kingsbury School Sports Partnership.  This allowed our children to attend various borough events including the Tag Rugby and Girls’ Cricket, where Byron Court were winners again.  Over 80 different children aged from 6 through to 11 were able to represent the school in the last academic year in 10 different sports.

£1,429 was spent on children’s PE and Sports equipment.  This included a variety of resources from metal football goals and netball goals through to playground balls and tag rugby belts.

The Wellbeing Fitness sessions was an exciting end to the year for all the children in the school as each year group were split up and then got to participate in an afternoon of physical events run by specialist coaches.


We believe extra curricular activities have an important role in motivating children and keeping them healthy. We offer a fantastic range of clubs and teams, making them available to as many children as possible.


Our wide range of extra curricular activities was acknowledged by Brent Council at the Brent Inspires Awards.

Byron Court has always tried to involve as many children as it can in sporting activities. As such, we already run many subsidised school clubs.

Participation in sport and tuition form sports coaches is important to enhance school life for Byron Court pupils. As such we will be using the additional funding as explained in the tables below:-
