Sports & PE Funding


Click on the documents below to read Hertford Infant and Nursery School Sports Funding Impact Statement, as well as our PE Policy. 

Background and rationale:

PE and sports premium is additional funding given to maintained primary schools and academies in England. It is targeted at improving the provision of physical education and sport in schools,

leading to improvements in:

  1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity- encouraging healthy lifestyles.
  2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the whole school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence and knowledge for all staff when teaching PE and sport.
  4. Broader range of experiences in sport and physical activity for all pupils.
  5. Increased participation in competitive sports.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish online information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Hertford Infant and Nursery School. As we are now part of the Brighton City Partnership we will also be working alongside other schools in the partnership evaluating and developing the use of Sports premium.


All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

For the financial year April 16- April 2017 we have received an amount of £8500.

Hertford Infant and Nursery School has a detailed action plan outlining what they are already doing to use their funding as well as future plans. The funding has enabled Hertford Infant and Nursery School to develop both the quality of PE provision throughout the school whilst enhancing the out-of-school opportunities for young people to be active.
