 PE Premium 2019-20


From September 2013, Deighton Gates has been in receipt of an annual grant dedicated to PE and Sport in school. This is funded jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport


In order to achieve sustainability of high quality provision, the majority of the grant is being invested in staff development. Over the first three years the grant has been used in the following ways to enhance the provision and achievement in Sport and PE

  • High Quality Teacher Training and cover to help teachers develop their expertise in a range of discipline
  • Specialist Sports Coaches to further support teachers and inspire


  • Reception teacher training in Early Years Physical Development
  • Replacing PE equipment to provide high quality resources to support high quality learning experiences
  • New mats for gymnastics
  • Basket ball workshop
  • New Sports Team kit to promote team work and an ethos of excellence through sport
  • Contribution towards climbing apparatus in Reception to develop gross motor skills
  • Resources for Dance
  • Subsidised afterschool clubs to widen participation
  • Active Schools in Leeds to develop city wide experiences
  • Establishing partnerships with local clubs
  • Funding for PE leader training and cluster meetings
  • Organisation of inter school competitions
  • Developing leadership skills for pupils with sports leader roles
  • Supplementary swimming sessions for Upper Key Stage 2 children who have yet to achieve the 25m minimum
  • Athletics equipment
  • Permanent goal posts for inter and intra school competitions
  • Transport to Sports Hubs for sport enrichment activities
  • To provide suitable storage facilities for equipment (2017 / 2018)
  • Funding for targeted lunchtime clubs and extra curricular activities  (2017 / 2018)


As a result of ongoing financial investment and dedication by staff we were delighted to have been awarded first in 2015 the Silver Award by Sainsbury’s School Sports which recognises excellence in PE and Sport, Gold in 2016, 2017 and Gold again in 2018. Higher percentages of children are taking part in active sport and competitions, progress and attainment for pupils in PE are higher, equipment and provision are of a very high standard supporting high quality teaching.


Planned spend for next year includes:

  • New football strip
  • Staffing for a Bikability course
  • Further funding of Professional Coaches
  • Further funding of CPD for all staff
  • Appointment of staff to provide extra-curricular clubs
  • Continue to fund for support for SEN and other targeted children at extra-curricular clubs
  • Intensive swimming lessons for Y5 and Y6 children
  • Team building day for the Sports Team
  • Opportunities for Sports Leaders to develop their sports leadership skills
  • Development of outside area to promote physical development in Reception and Year 1
