Sports / PE Premium


About the PE and Sport Premium


All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.

Our Commitment

We, at Captain Shaw's CE School, are committed to ensuring all our children have full and rich experiences which promote and improve physical and mental health. As such, we are striving to deliver this in accordance with the following five key indicators:


Our impact report will be published in the summer of 2022 and will show:


  • the amount of PE and sport premium received
  • a full breakdown of how it has been spent
  • the impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE, physical activity, and sport participation and attainment
  • how the improvements will be sustainable in the future


The percentage of pupils within our year 6 cohort in the 2021 to 2022 academic year who met the national curriculum requirement to:


  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations


If you require more information, please contact the school.



As part of our commitment to get children fully involved and engaged in physical activity and as part of our exciting 'Celebrating me, our school and our community' project this Autumn, children were tasked to write a report, persuading me how they believe some of the money should be spent! The children were really excited to use and develop lots of skills:


The children have completed their reports!


Children have now completed their Sports Premium Challenge and have persuaded me to spend the money on a brand new play park for our field! Take a look at some of their amazing reports below plus all the communication, writing, computing and design & technology skills they have developed!

The Play Park that the children campaigned for is now complete! You should be so proud of yourselves children! You made this happen

(and learned lots during the process)!


As part of our drive to keep active, the children have also been involved in choosing new equipment to encourage them to be even more active and use muscles they wouldn't normally use! 


We have also introduced, 'RAG TAG Tuesdays'! This is where we use our new Rag Tag kit, made from recycled materials that would have gone into landfill. The kit is a perfect way to problem solve; be really creative; work with different age groups and stay active!
