Sports Funding & Swimming


PE and Sport Funding

From September 2013 the government allocated funding directly to primary schools to support the provision of quality Sport/PE.  From 2013-2016, each school will received £8000 pa plus a further £5 per pupil. From September 2017, the government is providing further funding to improve physical education and sport in primary schools so for the academic year of 2017-2018, Little Plumstead will receive £17,770. 


To date we have received the following amounts:

2013/14 - £5,371 (from October 2013 to April 2014)

2014/15 - £8,573

2015/16 - £8,829

2016/2017 - £8,842

2017/2018 - £17,770


 Below is how we plan to spend this grant:

  • Training and professional development of teachers and other staff who teach PE. This includes two consecutive gymnastic training sessions with Kevin Holland, Norfolk Education Advisor who specialises in PE.
  • Developing and improving our physical educational resources, including new portable basketball hoops for indoor training.
  • Taking part in more competitions, e.g. Norwich East School Sports Partnership events, Norfolk School Games, Cluster events.
  • Emphasising the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle with support with our annual Health Week and The Legacy Challenge.  
  • Introducing the children to new sporting activities and opportunities.
  • Subject leader time to develop the subject as a whole, including assessment across the school. 

 Please note that this is a working document and may be altered throughout the year.


Following a successful Sportshall Athletics club, we have used some of our Sports Premium funding to purchase our own equipment. Norwich East School Sports Partnership had kindly loaned us theirs.
