Sports Premium Funding

Year 6 School Swimming Attainment Levels

As a direct result of the SPF through additional provision for children in KS2 who were not on track to achieve their competent 25m target; additional water confidence sessions incorporated into the KS2 swimming provision; and a KS1 swimming block during the summer term, 27 of the 30 current year 6 students achieved their Stage 7 award(Nottinghamshire School Swimming Association). This required the children to complete all of the following:

*Swim confidently, competently and efficiently over a distance of at least 25m

*Use a range of strokes effectively

*Perform safe self-rescue in a range of water-based situations


This amounts to 90% pass rate for this 2019/20 cohort.

What is School Sports Premium Grant?

The School Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.


How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Allocations for the academic year 2017/18 are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 and those age 5 in Reception, as recorded at the January Census as follows:

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 x2 plus £5 per eligible pupil; and

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per eligible pupil.


At Hollywell, we  have received £19,070 for the academic year 2019-20.


After an initial audit of school needs, a School Sports Premium Action Plan was constructed. This included a set of priorities for the School Sports Premium Grant upto the end of the 2018-19 academic year. Click at the top of this page to see a full breakdown of this years spending. 


What Happened Last Year? 

Last year our action plan built on the impact already seen in from the increased provision and positive attitudes to swimming within the school by again funding swimming for all year groups starting at year 2 .


We also continued to provide a wide range of after school activities for all pupils, with a particular focus on  engaging pupils within KS1.


We also used the funding for the ongoing Continued Professional Development of both staff needs within the curriculum and those outside of the curriculum to aid the delivery of extra curricular clubs. The main bulk of the spending in 2018-19 involved the continuation of our own Growth Project designed and implemented by the staff at Hollywell.
