Horsforth Newlaithes

Primary School


Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools to increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, and increase participation in PE & Sport. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school and those in benefit of pupil premium funding.  

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
1.the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
2.the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
3.increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4.broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5.increased participation in competitive sport.


Horsforth Newlaithes already has an excellent reputation for Sport and P.E. and we are proud of all of our sporting achievements. We welcome the additional funding, which will further enhance our provision and provide additional opportunities for increased participation.


The following table shows how Horsforth Newlaithes Primary School intends to spend the 2017/2018 Sports Premium money.
