Ramsgate Arts Primary School

One Childhood, One Chance

Sports Grant 2017-2018

The government provided additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is referred to as the Sports Premium and is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funds must be spent on improving the school's provision of PE and sport, and the school can choose how they can do this.

Ramsgate Arts Primary School received £16,540  plus £5 per child this year (based on 54 pupils not 143 that are on roll). The three main purposes of the funding are


  • allow schools to increase the skills of their staff, by providing high quality professional development opportunities
  • enable children to participate in extra-curricular sport which will lead into local clubs and extended services
  • provide such a variety of opportunities for our children that they will develop a lifelong love of sport.


At Ramsgate Arts Primary School we believe that participation within physical activities is essential in supporting development of a well rounded child.


To this end we have used and will continue to use the Sports Premium funding to encourage, develop and enthuse children to achieve in sport and fulfil their potential.


The governors agree that the funding must be used so that:

  • all children benefit, regardless of sporting ability
  • all children have the opportunity to compete against others at some level 
  • the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in high level competition, both at school level and beyond.


To facilitate the continued development of sport across the school we have employed a part-time P.E. Specialist, this allows every child in the school to have access to an active physical lesson at least once a week. This does not come out of our Sports Premium funding.
