Bringing Out The Best In Every Child

Sport Premium Funding 2021-2022

At Littleborough Community Primary School we believe it is important for all children to be given the opportunity to participate in competitive sport, through both intra and inter sports competitions. The school aims to introduce children to a range of sporting activities and to encourage them to appreciate how such interests can “enrich” their lives.

We believe that Physical Education and sport play a vital role in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children. Physical Education and sport are central in giving children the knowledge and understanding in order to make a positive impact on their own health and well-being. The physical education curriculum at Littleborough Primary School aims to provide children with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities, carried out in a safe and supportive environment, where effort and hard-work, as well as success, is celebrated.



The government has continued with its commitment to funding the primary school Sports Premium – an investment worth £750 million.

The Sports Premium is a key part of the government’s Olympic Games legacy work and is a ring-fenced funding for primary schools and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are 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 on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, to ensure that parents/carers are fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Littleborough Primary School.



For the financial year 2021/2022 we received an amount of £19,300

How we have spent the Sports Premium Funding so far:

  1. Supporting professional development opportunities in physical education, sport, activity and health: £11, 785
  2. Sport competitions items: £96
  3. Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs (dance, gymnastics, dodgeball, rugby, etc): £1920
  4. Equipment: investing in and replenishing equipment: £841
  5. Memberships to various sport associations: £825

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we were unable to run our annual Fun, Fitness and Finance week.  Don’t worry, it’ll be back!


Impact of Sport Premium at Littleborough Primary School 2020-2021

Unfortunately due to Covid-19, we were unable to offer as many sporting opportunities as we would have liked.  This lead to some of the funding rolling over to the following financial year. 

The sports premium funding has enabled us to continue to offer a wide range of sporting clubs which pupils are able to attend at a greatly reduced rate e.g. rugby, netball, cross country, gymnastics, etc. Teaching staff were able to observe coaches throughout the year (when possible), in order to develop their understanding of how to teach the specific sports effectively.

We are currently members of the Pennine School Sports Association and RBSGP.  This is a fantastic opportunity and it will open up a huge range of sporting competitions for the children, for example: swimming, netball, football, dodgeball, cross country and athletics.

A number of activities will also be on offer for the children as part of Fun, Fitness and Finance week in the Summer term – fingers crossed!
