School Games - Recognition Award 2019/2020



PE & Sports Premium


What is the PE & Sports Premium? 


Since 2013-14 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is allocated to primary school headteachers. From 2017-18 revenue from soft drinks industry levy has been used to double the value of the premium. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Tolworth School PE & Sports Grant 



Purpose of Funding


Purpose of funding schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

Our Funding 


At Tolworth School we have always seen PE and sport as an integral part of children’s development and lifelong learning. Over the years we have increased resources, provided more opportunities for all children to participate in different activities during lessons, playtimes, through after school clubs, intra class competitions and inter school competitions and festivals.

This funding will give us the opportunity to continue to develop and improve our provision for the benefit of the children. The funding is allocated by the number of registered children (5-11 years olds) in the Autumn 2021 census. The current funds for our school are as follows:

Nature of Activity 2023-2024




Impact, Participation and Attainment


There were limited opportunities to participate in inter competition last year due to timetabling challenges. In 2022 – 2023, to ensure children participated in physical activity, alongside 2 sessions of timetabled PE we actively promoted a daily continuous run to develop stamina and also delivered 15 minutes of fundamental skills practise every day (daily skill rotation). Half-termly multi skills sessions continued to be offered to all year groups and delivered by an external coach. We also encouraged intra year group competitions at the end of every curriculum area unit.

We entered a team in a Year 5/6 mixed hockey tournament and Year 5/6 mixed borough cross country run by Kingston Sports Partnership. 14 boys and 14 girls participated in total.

40 Year 6 children completed Bikeability.
