PE and Sport Premium Funding

PE & Sport Premium Funding: 2017-18


The Sports Premium was introduced to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles. It is allocated to schools to work with all pupils.


Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.


For the financial year of 2017/18, Michael Drayton Junior School was allocated £16,675

Impact for 17-18

The impact and the effectiveness of the various initiatives that have been introduced over the last year are not necessarily easy to directly link to changes in healthy lifestyles or PE participation. However, we can share the following:

  • The school continues to offer a wide range of after school sports clubs. More varied clubs were run during this academic year including sailing at Market Bosworth Water Park, Circuits, tri golf, badminton, netball, football and rugby.
  • Young Sports Leaders have volunteered in school, not only increasing sports participation but also promoting links with our local Secondary School which has included MDJS children being able to attend Trampolining and Basketball clubs.
  • Year groups 3 & 5 groups participated in Bikeability giving the children the opportunity to develop important life skills. Levels 1 & 2 were offered taking children from the basics of balance and control to short journeys on a road.
  • Children have participated in various tournaments with other local schools including football, hockey, netball and cross country. Being part of the Nuneaton Schools Sports Association helped to facilitate involvement with these events.
  • A hockey coach was involved with the hockey after school club.
  • The school was awarded the silver standard for the Schools Games Mark which is a national award given to schools that provide sporting activities for all.
