PE Sports Funding

The government is providing additional funding to Primary Schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is ring-fenced meaning it can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. We are free to spend the money as we wish but must report annually on what we have spent the money on and the impact it has had.

Our goal is to help children develop a thirst and motivation for being physically active for life. Sport and PE at Hovingham strives to create opportunities for children to develop their resilience and progress into secondary school education as confident and competent movers.

Physical Education

Here is what your child’s physical development journey will look like at Hovingham and St Hilda’s CE VC Primary Schools Federation:

  • EYFS children work towards achieving their early learning goals in physical development, moving and handling. Through areas of outdoor provision, children are able to choose and explore different ways of moving, balancing and handling in a fun environment. They also begin to learn how to interact and communicate with other children and assess risk.
  • KS1 children experience a broad range of activities that focus upon developing their physical literacy. A child who is physically literate is able to confidently move, balance, kick, throw and catch with success. In this key stage, children take part in their first whole class PE lesson and have the opportunity to attend after-school physical activity clubs.
  • KS2 children begin to apply their general movement skills to sport-specific skills. As they progress through the key stage, each child will experience modified versions of many different sports. They will learn basic rules and regulations, have the opportunity to coach others and umpire activities involving younger children to develop their leadership skills. PE in KS2 also provides the opportunity for children to learn about how the body works, the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how to develop essential life skills through applying the school learner characteristics.

School Swimming

Sports Premium Funding does not directly fund this. However, we have a swimming programme that ensures each child in Year 3-6 has access to a full course of Swimming Lessons annually. From the 2017-2018 academic year, there was a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their Year 6 cohort are meeting national curriculum requirements to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes and perform self rescue. Our results for 2019-2020 are;

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

% Achieved

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively (for example front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke)?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations?


(not tested)

Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements, Have you used it in this way?



After-School Clubs

We also have after-school clubs running every week throughout the year. Activities vary each term and all children from YR-Y6 have the opportunity to access these clubs. These clubs are led by very experienced Sports Coaches, some of whom also work alongside teachers and teaching assistants during the school day.


Competitive Sport and Sports Partnerships

We are members of the Ryedale Primary Schools Sports Partnership and, each term, we aim for every Y1-Y6 pupil to take part in an inter-school competition hosted at Ryedale School.
